This year I am starting with some very simple ornaments, I don't know if I will find time to do much more. I bought a bunch of the little white ornaments at the end of the season last year when they were on clearance for like 25 cents each. I planned on using waterslide decals to decorate them but first I will use up some rub-ons that I bought at the same time because it's fast, easy, and I think the end result is pretty cute.
Here's a picture and the simple instructions are below the picture:
Wipe down the ornaments with a cleaner that wont leave behind any residue. Choose the rub on you would like to add - these were the snowman faces, I also have some little winter scenes that I will use in the centers of some of the ornaments. There is no wait time once the rub-on is applied so now you can embellish the ornament some more. I added ribbon and fancy hangers to them and on some I also applied snow-tex and glitter. That's it! It doesnt' get much easier or faster and they are well received too.
You may want to add a gift card or a little sweets by using the same idea on a band-aid tin like this:
