I picked up some wrapping paper to wrap all my sisters gifts in as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer has always been her favorite Christmas cartoon. I decided to take some of the paper and cut out the characters, decopauge them onto some wooden dominos and made ornaments out of them.

Each has a bead hanging from the bottom, except the Dolly, somehow I forgot hers and didn't realize it till after I took the picture.  Embarrassed

Aaaaaw.  What a sweet idea.  by dominoes you mean teeny-tiny dominoes, right?  I think that's a great size for the subject matter, if that makes sense.  And I actually like the one without the bead. Smiley

I too love that classic clamation film(i have their rudolph ornaments and window decal) and watch it every year. What a creative invention!

They're actually made from full sized dominoes. They're about 2 inches tall  Grin

Wow, thanks for the great idea.  I came searching for some ideas for Christmas ornaments and this is perfect.  My boyfriend is a huge Rudolph fan.  I had mentioned to him the idea of making ornaments as something we could do together.  Decoupage never occurred to me but I'm sure its something he could handle, plus it would mimic an episode of Earl, lol, another favorite of ours.  Thanks so much for sharing!

Glad you guys like the ornaments! I think I may have to raid the rest of the wrapping paper stash & make some other ornaments to attach to gifts.

Those look nice! And I like the idea of using dominos as the main part... I could pick up a pack at the dollar store to make gift tags! Thanks Wink
