Personalized Christmas Ornaments

Many years ago I was an avid fan of the Soap Opera show, Days of Our Lives.  One of my favorite traditions the show had was personalized ornaments for each member of the Horton family.  I loved that idea and about 5 years ago I purchased 4 big round Christmas ornaments for the purpose of decorating them with our family names.  Unfortunately, they sat in the box for the last 5 years....until NOW! 

Previously, I didn't know what would be the best method of decorating them as I cannot paint and my handwriting abilities are pathetic, to the point that I have the handwriting (aka scribbling) of a doctor!  Now, with my computer and my Cricut, I can decorate the ornaments very easily.  I have seen many other blogs where they used clear Christmas ornaments and then placed glitter inside them, I want to try that too but for now, I needed to finally decorate my ornaments purchased over 5 years ago!

My project was very simple but really made some simple solid color ornaments stand out into a personalized, meaningful gift that is now displayed on our Christmas tree.  I used vinyl  in a ChopinScript font found online for free.  I then found several different snowflakes online from other very talented Bloggers and added 3 to 4 snowflakes around each ornament.

Below is my finished ornaments for my two sons, myself and husband!
