I try to give my kids some meaningful ornament each year so that when they're older and just starting out on their own they'll have enough of a collection to decorate a small tree. Anyway, I used to buy them, but every year I'm disappointed in the selection...store bought ornaments either seem to follow the same cliche themes and/or are really expensive...and/or look cheap and ugly.
So I thought this ornament would be special for Becca because she loves "B" and "2" so much and they represent so much of what she was learning over the last year. This is also a great ornament for little ones because it's so easy for them to hang on the tree...just drape the ribbon over a branch.
Want to make one? Here's what you'll need...
(I chose pink and purple because I let Becca choose the fabric...Santa didn't get this made in time for her stocking last year, but she didn't seem to mind.)
Here's what you do...
I started by making finding a simple font I liked on the computer. I think this was just plain old Ariel. (If you make the font to fancy, it's hard to cut out.)
I traced the letter onto some freezer paper. (Have you noticed your screen makes a great light box?)
