shrinky dink ornaments

I've always had an affinity for Shrinky Dinks. 
But I think these blank ones are the best!

We decided to make our own holiday ornaments. 

shrinky dink


materials needed:
blank Shrinky Dinks



colored pencils




scissors
hole punch
paper clips
toaster over or oven

Draw your ornaments. 

Mr. P. went with a Ninjago theme:







Auntie stuck with Chanukah:




Doodle went renegade:




And I went traditional:




After you're doing coloring your design (remember, you draw on the rough side, not the shiny side) be sure and hole punch them. Pop them in the oven (heat according to manufacturer's directions) and watch them shrink and harden! Once cooled, unwind a paper clip and weave through, creating your own hook. Place on the tree (ours isn't arriving until after Mr. P.'s birthday on the 17th) or wreath!



Enjoy!

  4. These are just precious. Just MY kind of decorating for our traditional tree.
    I promise you, they will mean even MORE to you as your kids grow up, strong and healthy.

  5. My kids got some shrinky dinks for Christmas last year, which they loved, but unforunately you can't see into our oven to see when they are ready...

  7. This works with rubber stamps as well. Stamp, color, cut, punch hole, bake.
