Easiest Antique Style Christmas Ornaments Ever

Probably not much has changed in two hundred years.  The boys love these.  We don't get all the Christmas stuff out of the attic, but we have to keep searching until we find them.  There must be battles.  Brigades. Marches.  Capture the candy cane.  I made these in high school or maybe college.  I don't know where I got the idea.  As always, you can benefit from my mistakes.  Here are the steps:

  1. Paint the shirt and mouth
  2. When those are dry, paint the straps and eye whites
  3. When those are dry, paint the pants and eye irises
  4. Glue a pom pom onto it's head
The boys are making some camo special forces this year.


  1. Very cool! I have seen these before with a younger group you could use a black sharpie.
