Chunky Christmas Cat Ornaments

Chunky Christmas Cat Ornaments

I used the assorted cat-themed images provided on VIC facebook page, cropping the cat and printing out 24 pictures at 1x1 each. For the base, I used 4 - 1" square wooden blocks. Screw a small eyehook attachment to the corner of each block. To paint the blocks, I used Colorbox Ruby Ink Pad but acrylic paint will also work, and allowed them to dry. Adhere the images to the blocks with ModPodge and allow to dry. Sand the edges of each picture and then ink with a cocoa colored ink pad. Use the ModPodge to seal the images. Embellish with a 6" piece of vintage gold tinsel and attach a ribbon to the eyehook for a hanger.
