I took pictures of each child against a white background and had them blown up at the printers. I rubber cemented their face onto a round wooden circle purchased from the craft shop and I painted one side green.(You could probably use poster board or cardboard). I made a template for the hat and collar and cut out 2 hats, 1 edging of hat, and 2 collars. Glued them onto the circle, flipped the hat through the cord, glued and added a pom pom!
Here is the back to show how I glued one collar and hat on the back and one on the front with Tacky Glue. This ornament still looks like the day I made it and it makes me so happy each year that I pull it out and see Dalton's sweet smile!
I believe if I were making them again I would reverse the colors so that it would show up on my green tree a little better!
Happy Weekend and Merry Christmas from Dalton the Elf!
