For the Christmas Tree in my daughter’s room, I wanted to include some type of ornament that would reflect a little bit about her. Like most of her middle school friends, she is totally obsessed with monograms. Of course that’s something I hope she never grows out of! As Reese Witherspoon said, “My sheets are monogrammed, so is my silverware and pretty much everything else I own. My rule is, if it’s not moving, monogram it.” Not a bad rule to live by!
She had several plain ball ornaments on her tree, so I simply made her monogrammed ornaments with a Sharpie. It really doesn’t get much easier than that! I’ve monogrammed several types for her, and found that the ones that work the best are the dull plastic balls. The Sharpie ink shows up the best on the dull plastic. You can definitely use a glass ornament or a shiny plastic one, but the color won’t be as rich. You could use a paint pen, instead of a Sharpie for the shinier or glass balls for a little better results. For ideas on how to draw the monogram, search monogram styles online, if you’d like. She also made a few of these to give to her monogram loving friends. It’s a very inexpensive friend gift for this time of year.
