Instructions for Christmas Decoration Wedding Favors
- In the top, center of each ornament screw an eye hook. You may need to start the hole by drilling a small hole first. You can also press the screw into the center to make a little mark, then press as you turn. Or you can turn the ornament onto the screw instead.
- Cut one 10-inch piece of twine for each ornament.
- Thread the twine through the eye hook. Pull the twine through until the eye is at the 5-inch halfway point.
- Thread both ends of the twine through a bead. Pull the bead through until it’s flush against the eye hook.
- Tie a knot in the twine so that the knot rests on top of the bead.
- Make another knot at the open end to make a loop.
- Trim off ends as close to the knot as you’d like.
- Use the paint and detailing brush to paint a word onto the front of your ornament. We chose the word JOY.
- Let dry.
