DIY New Baby Ornament

We have been getting ready for Christmas in the Tafoya house the past few days.  Alex and his friend Jimmy had a few brewskis and put the tree up, so Avery and I put the lights on and decorated it!

Avery was very interested in what mommy was doing!  After I got it all decorated I held her up and she just gazed at the lights and all the breakables in awe!  lol

And before you ask, those two stockings are for the dogs, no announcements this Christmas!

So much has changed since last year!  We have a 5 month old!  I can’t believe it!  Before I get to my tutorial, check out the new family ornament that I added to the tree this year!

Aw so cute I love hot cocoa and the marshmallows are the best part!

And our last year's ornament was pretty special too...

I had plans to make a cute little shadow box with Avery’s hospital hat and bracelet. Then I got to thinking, after she gets older where would I hang it? I decided to put them in a glass ornament so we can get it out every year at Christmas time! I love how it turned out!  Before I get to the tutorial, just a little flashback to my little squish when she wore her hospital hat.

I love this picture.  It was taken after her first bath.  She looks so snug!

I pulled the top off and set the bulb down in the tray to hold it there.  Avery's hat actually consisted of a hospital hat with another hospital hat as the bow, so I had to really work it in there!  After I finally squeezed it in, I added her hospital bracelet.
