Copper-Foil Ornaments - How to Make Your own
by Chris Granger
What better way to liven up the holidays than with some homemade copper foil decorations? Not only are they extremely easy to make, but they add the perfect holiday charm to your home. All you will need for this project are a few simple supplies. You'll need some copper foil .005 to .010 inch thick (30-40 gauge), metal cutters, sandpaper, various holiday shaped cookie cutters, a hole puncher, some ribbon in festive colors, and a pencil to trace the shapes.
In addition, it adds a great personal touch if you cut and paste a photograph of your family or any other picture you prefer to the copper foil ornament. In fact, you could also make an entire collage of photo-ornaments to illustrate the year. You could make a copper foil decoration for each of your relatives and loved ones to hang on your tree.
This way you can have the entire family with you for the holidays, even if they canít actually be there in person. I suggest using craft scissors to crop the photograph to make it look neater and more artistic. 'Hope you enjoy this fun and easy craft with copper foil!
