Handmade Peace Ornaments for Christmas

I whipped up some very cute and easy to make peace sign and dove ornaments for my tree this year. 

They were made using images I found online. All you need is some card stock paper, white glitter, spray adhesive, acrylic gems and ribbon. 

Here's how I did it: 

I folded a piece of card stock in half.

Then, using the printed image I found online, I made a stencil that I could trace onto the folded card stock. 

After cutting it out, you will have two doves. 

Using spray adhesive, glue the two doves together. This will help make it more sturdy so that you can use them again next year!

Next, make a hole for hanging your ornament. I used a hole puncher. Then, spray adhesive on one side and sprinkle the glitter evenly. When it is dry, flip it over and do the other side. 

Hang it on the tree with some ribbon and enjoy the sparkle! 

The peace sign ornaments were made using the above steps. But, instead of sprinkling glitter on them, I glued acrylic gems with spray adhesive. 

They made my tree look extra nice and they were fun to make! Enjoy! :0)
