Are you crazy busy this holiday season? Do you want to make hand-made ornaments but don’t have a lot of time to get crafty? Are your artistic skills on par with a fourth grader? Do you collect Sharpies?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, this project is for you!
All you need to make these super-cute Santa’s belt ornaments is red ball ornaments, a black Sharpie and a gold Sharpie. If you haven’t used a metallic Sharpie before they write more like a paint pen than a Sharpie, which is great for this project. This was my first time using the Sharpies I got earlier this year.
Start out by drawing a square on the side of the ornament with your gold Sharpie. Keep tracing it until it is a thickness you like.
Then draw two lines around the ornament with your black Sharpie to make the belt. If you have trouble keeping them straight (I did but didn’t worry to much about it), stretch a rubber band around the ornament and use it as a guide.
Color in the center of the buckle and the belt with your black Sharpie. Hint: don’t color over black ink that has dried or it will scrape off.
Thats it. Yup. All she wrote. Your Santa’s belt ornament is done. Be proud of yourself. Hang it on your tree or give it away.
This project would also be great for kids old enough to handle glass ornaments and Sharpies.
