DIY Wood Set of Names of Christ Christmas Ornaments

This would be a great Super Saturday craft project, girls night out craft project, inexpensive Christmas gift, to sell at a craft fair, or decoration for your own Christmas tree! It took me about 60 minutes to make it, including cutting and sanding the blocks.

Here is what you need to make this DIY Wood Names of Christ Christmas Ornaments:

Specialty lumber (found near the 3-4' long hardwood boards)
9- 3.25" pieces
The actual size of the board is .5"x1.5"x36"
1 board is $0.53 at Home Depot.
HINT: Check their scrap pile in the back, you might be able to find something that will work for 75% off!
Want ideas on how to use the rest of your board?  Check out this cute project:
 Total- $0.53

Names of Christ Free Printable
This free printable is found at the end of this post. Print it on plain white standard copy paper using only black ink. Nothing fancy needed.
 Total- $.04

White Paint 
You may paint each block white or whatever color you wish.
 Total- $.05

Paint Brush
I used a 1.5" wide paint brush but you can use whatever you have.

You will want to quickly sand the blocks after you cut them.
Total- $.05

Drill with 3/8" drill bit (or a drill bit as large as you want)

Mod Podge
I used 2 ounces to make this. I used matte, but you can use glossy if you like that look better. 
If you buy mod podge in bulk, 1 ounce is about $0.10 at a craft store. You can also buy a 2 ounce bottle at Dollar Tree if you just want a little bit. 

Total- .05

Grand total: $.92

Let's get started!

Cut, sand, and paint your wood. Print off the free printable found at the end of this post on normal white copy paper (nothing fancy) using just black ink. I'm using an old cereal box to let my wood blocks dry. While the wood blocks are drying, cut out the papers. Try to cut away all of the black boarders.

Using mod podge and a paint brush, apply a thin layer to the front of a wood block.

Press the paper firmly into place using clean fingertips. 

Then turn it over and do the same thing to the back. Apply a thin layer of mod podge to the other side of the wood block.

Press the paper firmly into place using clean fingertips. 

Repeat for the rest of the blocks.
This is what they look like before you sand them.

Then get your sand paper or sand block.

Sand the edges as much as you'd like. (You can skip this step if you don't like this kind of look or if you are in a huge hurry!)

Sand the rest of them.

Then brush on a coat of mod podge, covering the entire block, and let them dry. The mod podge will dry clear.

Now it's time to drill the hole in the tops of them.
Thread twine into each hole and tie a knot at the end of the two ends. Trim the ends to even them up.
Take them to your tree or wrap them up to give as a gift. 

Hang them on the tree and each night read one of the Bible verses on the back of the ornament.
Here's what the tree looks like with the DIY Names of Christ Wood Ornaments! I love it! It definitely draws more attention to our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I hope you enjoyed this!
