How to color and shrink your Winter Octopus ornament:


  1. Color the sanded side of the ornament with colored pencils. (The shiny side has the line drawing on it; the sanded side will hold your color best.)
  2. Bake at 325℉ for 5 minutes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Remove from oven. If ornament does not come out flat, set another piece of parchment paper on top and a heavy book for 1 minute.
  4. Thread a ribbon or ornament hook through the hole at the top. Enjoy!
