I am always on the look out for Christmas ornaments and I stumbled across a few on Pinterest.

Let’s start with this:

Kendra and I decided to make some ornaments out of Scrabble tiles. We ordered a Super Scrabble of Amazon and it was here 2 days later (thank you Amazon prime). Why order a Super Scrabble? You get 200 letters (double) for the price of 100 replacement tiles. Score!

I had Chris cut the tray to fit Kyler’s name and glued a piece of ribbon on. Tada!

Next up is Kyler’s first hand print!

Yes, I know this is a key…. but this is what I wanted Kyler’s hand print to look like.

We picked up a kit at TJ Maxx and got to work. We were able to get 2 hand prints out of one kit!

Kendra ended up doing the house key since they just moved into a new house and had some left over. We started experimenting and came up with this!

Well this isn’t an ornament but it’s made with Scrabble pieces and since I already spoke of scrabble pieces, I am going to throw it in here.

I picked a fun red paper, spelled out “Merry Christmas” and found a bunch of random green buttons and glued em on the page. How did I come up with so many green buttons you ask? Before Kyler was born, I made a few art pieces with my Cricut and bought a Bag O’ Buttons to use for eyes and such. I had so much left over and it came in handy!
