How To Make Sheriff Woody Ornaments
I’ve got several step-by-step photos to guide you through making these Disney ornaments, and there is also a slideshow video over on my YouTube channel that you can watch and save to your Playlists for future reference. (Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!)
Assembling your Toy Story ornament is really easy – here is how you do it!
Simply print the template onto the corresponding colored paper or card and cut the pieces out. Print the page with the sheriff badge, belt, and buckle onto dark yellow, and not yellow as listed.
Alternatively, you could print onto regular paper and trace around the pieces onto the colored card, especially if you are worried that it won’t go through your printer. You will have to draw on some embellishments.
Using a glue stick, stick the blue piece onto the yellow body piece, and then the red neckerchief to the top.
Add white school glue to the pieces you want to add glitter to (glitter is optional, but highly recommended because: Christmas!) and sprinkle glitter on top. Shake off the excess and leave to dry.
Here are the glitter pieces as a guide (but you can add glitter where ever you like!):
red neckerchief, gold or white shirt buttons, gold belt buckle, black cow print, and gold sheriff badge.
Add the belt and buckle, and place the cow print pieces on either side of the neckerchief.
Add the Mickey ears to the top of the head, evenly spaced apart, and finish off with Woody’s cowboy hat and sheriff badge.
Just one more step which is sticking a loop of black string or ribbon to the back of the ornaments. Leave everything to dry completely before hanging on your tree!
If you want the decorations to last longer, you could run them through a laminator before attaching the hanging loop. When cutting out after laminating the ornaments, make sure you leave a slight edge so that the laminating sheets do not come apart!
