We’ve all been suckered into those adorable coloring books and I am no exception. I love those things. Adult coloring books are such an easy way to pass the time creatively without having to worry about how your page is going to turn out at the end. Coloring book pages are my new sudoku. They help pass the time and keep my brain active. But what do you do with all your finished coloring book pages? Of course, some I never want anyone to see and should probably just burn them, but there are other pages that I’m really proud of. So I’ve been trying to come up with creative ways of displaying my artwork. This simple coloring book page ornament is one of them!
How To: Coloring Book Ornament
- Coloring Book Page
- Color-In Water Color Pencils
- Color-In Water In Brush
- Wooden Ornament, the shape is up to you.
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Ribbon, optional
- Color your image using the Color-In Water Color Pencils. Blend your colors using the Color-In Water In Brush.
- Once your image is colored, allow it to dry completely.
- Using Mod Podge and a foam brush, apply the glue to the front of the wooden ornament and back of the coloring book image. Smooth out the image on to the ornament.
- Use the Mod Podge to cover the top of the ornament and seal it. I chose to use Glitter Mod Podge but any variety will work.
- Allow to dry completely and add ribbon if desired.
There you have it, a simple way to use some of those masterpieces you’ve been hiding in your coloring books. This is also a creative way to show off kids artwork if your fridge has no more room! Surprise the kids with their own artistic ornaments to put on the tree. They’ll be so proud of themselves when they see their work lit up by sparkling string lights.
