Just a cute little ornament!

I was planning on making more of these…I still have a plain wooden moose leftover.  So, I'll save it for next Christmas.

This is super easy to do & makes such a super cute little gift for a friend or family member.

Want to make one?  Here's what you need:

  • A wooden moose (or other creature)
  • Some scrapbook paper
  • White paint (or black)
  • A sponge (or small piece of a sponge)
  • Modge Podge
  • Pencil
Here's all you need to do:
  1. First, place the moose on top of the scrapbook paper (paper face up - otherwise it will be backwards), trace, and cut out.
  2. Next, use the Modge Podge as a glue and glue the scrapbook paper on top of the moose.
  3. Let it dry for about 20 minutes to half an hour.
  4. Take a little bit of paint and put it on the sponge.  Gently (and carefully) sponge paint around the edge of the moose.
  5. Let dry for about 45 minutes or so.
  6. Lastly, use the Modge Podge as a sealer/varnish and coat the ornament in several times.  I only did one on the back and several coats on the front.
See how easy that was?!  And it's so cute!

The final result!

So easy to do & super cute!
