I absolutely love everything robin related, so when I was thinking about a Christmas ornament idea I knew I would use my paper napkins with robins on them. If you read the blog you will see I attempted two types - one with napkins and one with a printed image and both worked great!
Time: 3 HoursCost: $5Difficulty: Medium

I used a plain plastic bauble and opened it. I then used only one half and covered the outside of the bauble with mod podge

I then separated the 3 layers from the napkin and used the top layer only.

Then place the napkin FACE down outside of the bauble (reverse decoupage and smooth the wrinkles over. I used some cling film over and smoothed over with my finger.  Then put an extra layer of mod podge.
