My daughter and I saw some cute monogram ornaments in a high end gift shop that sold for $7.95 each. My daughter wanted one, so I told her I could make them for pennies. I already had most of the supplies on hand leftover from other projects. I purchased a pack of assorted fun foam sheets at the dollar store. These look great on the tree and would make nice gifts or package ties.
Approximate Time: Less than 30 minutes
- fun foam
- poster board or thin cardboard
- piece of ribbon for hanger
- assorted seed beads, bugle beads, and sequins
- craft glue
- If you're good at drawing, you can freehand initials onto cardboard. If not, simply find a font you like on the computer and print out the initials the desired size you like. Mine were approximately 4 inches tall.
- Once you print out the initials onto paper, glue them to thin cardboard or poster board. (I used an old file folder. You could use a cereal box, etc.)
- Cut out initials from the cardboard and trace around it onto desired color of fun foam. You will need to cut out 2 initials for each ornament for stability.
- When gluing the two together, sandwich the ribbon between the two pieces at the top to create a hanger.
- Apply a liberal amount of craft glue to the front of the initial. Sprinkle on seed beads, bugle beads, and sequins. Set aside to dry.
