Altered Holiday Wooden Ornament

So I was in Wal Mart the other day looking for sales on Christmas crafts when I came across a little box of Wooden ornament shapes. And I thought boy they might be cute decorated with paper instead of painted. So I picked them up (along with some other items) and brought them home. I really liked the shape of the sleigh so I started with that. It was easy to glue paper onto the wooden shape. Glue your paper to the front of the ornament. Then turn the shape over and with an exacto knife cut along the edge. Flip over and decorate.The box contains 36 pieces, 6 Santas, 6 Reindeer, 6 Sleds, 6 Ornaments and 6 tags.

The snowflake was inspired by Sweet Miss Daisy, she makes the best snowflakes!! Here's her blog so you can see for yourself. http://sweetmissdaisy.typepad.com/
