So lately I’ve been a little obsessed with emoji. I think that they are hilarious and silly, and sometimes one little emoji can express so much more than a whole sentence. (P.S. Thanks for your feedback on Instagram!). I actually have a few emoji crafts planned over the next few weeks, so check back to see what else I have in store.
What you need:
1. Printable emoji (set of 9)
2. 2.5-Inch Circle Paper Punch
or just scissors
3. 2.75 inch wooden circles (found at Michael’s for about 25 cents each)
4. Mod Podge
6. Hot glue gun
7. White printer paper
What you do:
1. Paint your wooden circles white. Make sure you paint the edges. You also need to paint one side.
2. Print out the emoji. You can easily punch out around each emoji with a 2.5 inch round paper punch. You could also just cut around with scissors. I left a little bit of white showing through. A couple of the unusually shaped emoji (like the angel or the blowing a kiss face) don’t fit well inside the circle punch, and I would recommend cutting them out with scissors.
3. Brush a light coat of Mod Podge across the wooden circle and attach your paper emoji. Press down lightly across the ornament to prevent bubbles. Do this a couple of times as it dries. Do not put Mod Podge on top of the paper.
4. I wanted to make ornaments with the same emoji on both sides, so I made 2 wooden circles for each emoji. Cut a piece of yarn (or ribbon, twine, etc…) and flip over one of the circles. lightly mark the center top of the ornament and lay out your yarn so that it makes a loop at the very top.
5. Now apply hot glue along the center where the yarn is and create a circle around the ornament. Don’t get too close to the edges though. Then very quickly press the two wooden circles together and tightly squeeze.
And you’re done! These emoji ornaments are a fun and quick Christmas craft. We haven’t put our Christmas tree up yet this year, but these cute little guys will be the first things on it.
