I’ve never really been one to make New Years resolutions, but I do take time each Jan 1st to write down my prayers for the New Year. This year I’ve decided to get my family involved in this New Years tradition!
I wanted a place that we could all record our prayers and be able to look back on them at the end of the year. So, I made this Prayers & Praises ornament!
NEW YEARS TRADITION- KEEPSAKE ORNAMENT
Here’s how I made mine, but if you don’t have these supplies, don’t let that stop you. The important thing is the idea behind the ornament and not how it looks!
I stated with a clear glass ornament. You can find these at any craft store. There are also plastic ones that would work just fine.
To add the words I used my Cricut but you could also use stickers or a paint pen.
I had some gold and black confetti from another project and I thought it would add a fun touch to this New Year’s ornament.
I added some black ribbon for hanging.
The last step is to add your prayers. Each person can write down their prayers for the New Year and place it inside the ornament. Next year when you pull out the ornaments, you can read the prayers and add your praises! I think it’s important to remember all that God provides throughout the year and what He brings us through.
I’m not saying that the answer to each prayer will be Yes, but I do know that God hears each prayer and regardless of His answer, He is always worthy to be praised!
When the New Year rolls around, just start all over again. Eventually you’ll have a collection of Prayers & Praises keepsake ornaments!
