State Christmas Ornaments
Make your own custom state heart ornaments with our tutorial.
- United States wood cutout here is a similar one to mine on Etsy
- Industrial hole punch or drill
- White craft paint
- Grey craft paint
- Red craft paint or paint pen
- Printed map of the United States in the same size as your cutout
You will need to add a hole to the wood piece for hanging. You can use an industrial hole punch, drill, or even just a sharp screwdriver.
Paint with as many coats of white as it takes. Be sure to allow to dry completely in between coats.
Print out a map of the US with the state outlines that is about the same size as your wood piece.
Lay the paper on top of your wood and trace around with a ballpoint pen. The pen will make a slight indention in the wood.
Then you just fill the indention with your gray paint. Use any gray craft paint you have on hand. The paint a small heart in the approximate location of the city. I used a paintbrush and red craft paint but a fine line paint pen would work great.
