12 Days of Christmas Nativity Ornament

Silhouette Cameo Nativity Ornament from Antonella at

12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

I cannot wait to share all the projects with you, this is a nativity ornament. I will be back tomorrow to show my throwback post that has one of the other ways I've done this project.

I used one of my purchased Silhouette cut files and cut the nativity scene on black paper, glued it to a red tag that I had (I believe I purchased these from an office supply store), added lots of crystal glaze and glitter. Attached a star and some pretty flower shaped sequins and there you have it.  When I started this project, I was looking for an easy to make ornament, that would be inexpensive to make because I was donating them to my son's school for their St. Nick Shoppe. They try to offer items that they can sell for $1 - $3 each so that they are affordable for all the students, so you can see why I needed to keep the costs down.  I attached a ribbon for the hanger and was ready to go.

As you can see, there was some variation to the ornaments as I was assembling them. I think that is half the fun of creating these kinds of projects.

Do you make your own ornaments for friends and family or even perfect strangers (lol)? Around this time of year my son will ask me what I am making for his teachers. I always try to make ornaments for each of his teachers, but that was easier when he only had one teacher who taught every subject. These days I try to draw the line at no more than 3 or 4 ornaments and the rest get a gift card with a fun gift card holder.  I would love to do more, and perhaps if I started making them earlier I would be able to. Last year I may have given away more than 4, lol.  Who needs sleep anyway!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
