Hello Friends! Are you ready to make some adorable Mr. and Mrs. Claus Christmas ornaments? This post will tell you everything you need to know to make this cute couple for your tree!
The things you need for this project are:
Or (if you have a laser cutter)
1. First, you will gather your supplies and remove the paper masking (only the front, not the backing as the backing paper will reveal the sticky adhesive.) If you have a Laser cutter, cut out the design.
Tips for cutting on the Glowforge:
2. Next, take the dauber and start painting the pieces. I painted with the following.
3-A. Gather all the Santa pieces.
3-B. Peel off the adhesive protective paper off the back of the red hat piece and stick in place.
3-C. Peel the backing off of the mustache with a cut out in it, stick it in place.
Next, put a bit of hot glue in the space below the mustache. Then stick the beard fur in place. Note: if you would rather use the wooden beard instead of the faux fur, do not use hot glue. You will just want to remove the backing paper of the wooden beard and stick it into place.
Tips: If you are not using the kit, use the beard shape as a stencil and use a craft knife to slightly cut through the backing making sure to not cut too deep. If you do the fur on the front may have weird cut lines.
3-D. Next, peel the backing of the mustache off and stick into place. Do the same to the hat ball.
3-E. Next, peel the backing paper off of the hat trim and place it onto the base of the hat. Then, peel the backing off the nose and place on top of the mustache.

4-A. Gather all the pieces for Mrs. Claus.
4-B. Remove the backing paper of the adhesive on the hair and place it in place.
4-C. Remove the backing and stick the frames in place.
4-D. Remove the adhesive backing on the nose and lips and place under the glasses.
4-E. Place the acrylic lens in the frames. With these not being perfect circles if you rotate them slightly they will fit snug into place, without having to use any glue or adhesive.
4-F. Next, grab the greenery and Red Berries. Take the berries and wrap the wire around the greenery.
4 G. Take a dab of hot glue and glue the greenery berries in place on the hair need the bun.
5. Take your string and string it though the hole adding a knot at the top. this will allow you to hang it on your tree!
You made it, now show that ornament proudly on your Christmas tree!
