Puppy’s First Christmas Ornament

I’ll go ahead and say it, I really really dislike cheesy ornaments (I didn’t use hate because my daddy taught me that hate is strong word).

When Garrett and I decide to have children they’ll have their own Christmas tree for their ornaments to go on. Not that I wont appreciate the 5 “baby’s first Christmas” ornaments will probably get per kid it’s just that I can’t have precious moments clashing with my d├ęcor theme. So instead of buying an ornament from Pet Smart that says dog’s first Christmas I made my own. It’s simple, classic, it even looks a little vintage, and it goes with my tree!

This project cost me about $3. I purchased the frame ornament from Michael’s for a little over a dollar. I cut the ribbon it came with off so I could paint it a pearl white (Martha Stewart brand that I already had). Then I snapped a pic of my pup, turned it black and white, printed it off on cardstock, and taped it to the back of the frame. To finish it off I wrote the year in paint pen and tied my own pretty ribbon on it! The other $2.50 comes in from what ever fraction of costs I used from the ribbon and paint pen I used.

It looks so good on my tree and our little fur baby has an ornament from her first Christmas so we can remember it forever!
