What is better than regular Christmas ornaments? Reversible Christmas ornaments! Learn how to make these with Mod Podge and this simple tutorial.
I am a huge fan of easy and inexpensive crafting, and these ornaments are both inexpensive and super easy to make!
You will need unfinished paper mache’ ornaments (you could also use empty ribbon spools), scrapbook or wrapping paper, letters, ribbon, a foam brush, and of course, Mod Podge. I also used the squeegee from the Mod Podge Tool kit.
Begin by tracing your circles on the paper of your choice. Since I am making 3 ornaments, I needed 6 to cover the fronts and backs.
Next, coat one side of your ornaments with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
Smooth one of your cut out circles onto your ornament front. I used this cool Mod Podge squeegee to smooth out any wrinkles, but feel free to use an old gift card or your fingers if you don’t have one.
Now, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge onto the top of the paper. This will help seal your paper and give it a nice sheen. Repeat this process on the other side of your ornament.
Once both sides are dry, apply a thicker coat of Mod Podge all the way around your ornament.
Press your ribbon all the way around the ornament, cutting it at the end.
To finish, simply apply Mod Podge to the back of your letters and place them firmly on the front of your ornaments. Let dry, then hang em’ wherever you wish!
As you can see, I choose JOY. The beauty of these easy ornaments is you can make them say whatever you like, and if they turn, the back is as pretty as the front!
