Creating a gift for an entire family is a tricky one. It’s hard to please everyone and so we usually end up pleasing the mom. But all ages seem to love ornaments and decorating the tree. So for this family gift, there’s an ornament for each person with their initial on the front, a family letter ornament (“w” for our name “willard”), and a star to go on top. It’s the gift that keeps giving year after year as the tree decorations are pulled down from the attic.
These ornaments were made a couple years ago for my little L and O. And we gave a set to each family of cousins too, with a personal message on the back.
This year I finally got around to making a proper tutorial for it. So HERE you go! (it’s also in the TUTORIALS link at the top of the blog)
And they’re also part of the Say Yes to Hoboken, BlogNog holiday series. Since Halloween, Liz has been hosting holiday ideas from various bloggers. Hop over for all sorts of cool ideas from other bloggers.
