Happy Monday! So, I have two posts for you today… one is another ornament and the other is some new art for our bedroom. It will go live later this morning.

Luke and I are huge on traveling (like it’s our favorite thing to do together) and we make it a priority. It helps that Luke works for Expedia, but before he even started there the travel bug bit us… hard. Now, that we have a little one, we try to do a family vacation each year and also a vacation with just Luke and I. Greyson loves looking at our travel hallway (which I totally need to update soon with pictures for the blog) and so I thought he would really love getting ornaments out each year that had a memento from our vacations.

So, I made this little guy:

The sand was from our family vacation last year, but now that I have this idea in my head I’m going to be looking out for things that can fit in glass ornaments during our future vacations.

Basically, to do this, I filled a clear glass ornament with sand and then made the tags.

I used this punch and paper for the tags:

If you don’t have a punch you could print one off and then cut it out.

I strung the tags on a piece of twine.

I didn’t like the twine and the metal top of the ornament together, so I just covered the top of the ornament with twine.

Easy peasy and pretty cute if I do say so myself.
