Each year I try to make or buy the kids some ornaments that reflect whatever they're into that year. I'm hoping they'll end up with a fun collection to take with them when they're all grown up. (Although I can't bear to think of them actually growing up and moving out.)
Last year I ended up making the Yo Gabba Gabba cast, a couple of Transformers, and Max and Ruby.
You may remember these Spongebob ornaments I made recently. Both kids like Pokemon, so I decided to make another series of ornaments, with a few of their favorite characters.
As per my usual technique, these were traced from books. I've discovered through trial and error that I prefer the way these turn out when colored with colored pencils, instead of Sharpies.
