The Graphics Fairy. I'm linking him up to Brag Monday. I used my photo editing software to add the hat and word. These ornaments are easy to make. You will start by using a nail and hammer to create two holes opposite from each other (top/bottom) for your hanger and anything you might want to to dangle. Just a tap with the hammer and your nail will form a small hole. I place a piece of scrap wood underneath while I am doing this. Then, trace the bottom of the jar lid onto your photo, vintage image, etc. Before I cut, I usually mount my image onto chipboard (got a coaster?) then cut. You need a thick base to glue the image to the jar lid. Also, these lids are not perfectly round. So, cut your image, sand the edges (use a nail file) and see if it fits. Trim as necessary. Place a layer of lace or cheesecloth underneath the image to help cover any imperfections in your not so perfect circle. You could also use some vintage pipe cleaner like I did here.
