Who doesn’t love a handmade gift? This year I was inspired by this post to make washer ornaments. I think that my friends will be quite happy with what I created.
To make these ornaments, I followed the directions from the link above but made a few changes.
~Washers – I got mine at Lowes.
~Stamp Kit – Mine was purchased at Harbor Freight over the summer
~Strong glue – I used E600. The directions in the link above don’t include glue. They let the ribbon hold the ornaments together, but doing that hid some of my stamping, so I glued the two washers together exactly where I wanted them.
Start by stamping the washers. I sat on the basement floor and pounded away. Be sure to buy a few extra washer because you are bound to have a few failed attempts.
One washer at a time, go over the stamping with a black Sharpie. Immediately wipe clean with a baby wipe. The marker will make your stamped letters pop.
Next glue the washers together.
After the glue dries, tie on the ribbon and you’re done.
This is a quick and easy gift that I think my friends will really like!
