Santa, Reindeer Silhouette Xmas Ornaments

My mom gave me a cute holiday book over the weekend: Deck the Halls from Country Living magazine.  It has a ton of adorable holiday ideas and pages that you can rip out, cut and use for decorations.  I spied a Santa and reindeer silhouette, and thought they'd look great in some of the glass ornament bulbs I got over the summer at a garage sale.
First, I scanned the tag images so I wouldn't have to cut the originals.  I printed them out on regular white paper.  Then I used my Cricut to cut them into an oval shape - to make them easier to add to each bulb.
I rolled them into a scroll to get them in, and then used splinter tweezers to un-curl them.  Next, I added some faux snow to the bottom of each bulb.  Tie on some tea-stained seam binding for a cute bow and then some baker's twine in red/white so they can be hung from the tree.
While I was at it, I used some miniature bottle brush trees for some simple ornaments too.  I used Glue Dots to secure them to the bottoms of each bulb, the splinter tweezers to get them in, and then added some faux snow.  I decided to skip the seam binding for these, and just added the baker's twine so we could hang them.

Super duper easy to make each of these!
