There seems to just be something innately wrong with the words "Breaking Bad" and "Christmas" together.
Well, either way, I put them that way!
Today I'm showing you how I made this Breaking Bad ornament for our friend. Every week for the past few months my husband and I have met up with our friend on Thursdays to watch TV.
TV night is the best day of the week besides Taco Tuesday. (Free tacos and cheap happy hour at the hotel down the road from us...yeah, I know. Call us free loaders. There are a lot of other people we've seen week after week too, so it is justifiable.)
The first show we watched for TV night was LOST. One day we were talking and hanging out and realized we were all on Season 3 of LOST and wanted to finish it. Thus TV night was born. When LOST ended, we decided to pick another show to watch.
The guys picked Breaking Bad. Let me just say I really thought this show was going to suck, and I wasn't even that interested for the first three or so episodes. But then, it got interesting. I'm not giving away any spoilers, but the rest of the show is amazing. The acting, the character development, and the complete lack of characters having morals was absurdly interesting. The whole show was really more like a metamorphosis of characters, which I thought was cool.
Anyway, I digress.
Actually, I'm going to digress again because I'm really really sad about being done with Breaking Bad. :( I've been researching new shows to watch, and everything else looks like it sucks in comparison. I just want to watch them both again. Suggestions??
Okay, done digressing again.
I started by cutting two 2" X 2" squares out of cardboard and painting them green.
I used some yellow mixed into the same green to add the smokey look they use on the intro of the show.
I used a ruler to measure the letters inside the block and keep the edges straight.
Then I colored in with a white paint pen.
I'm starting to love it more. When the paint dries from the white lettering (it took forever for mine to dry for some reason) then you can gently erase the lines that are outside your letters.
I didn't photograph this part, but I put some paint from the paint pen on scrap paper and dipped a sharpened pencil into the paint to write the element numbers in the corner.
I hate wasting space, so on the back side where I glued the ribbon on for the hanger, I wrote "Keep Calm and Call Saul" and did a silhouette of Season 3 maybe 4 (I think) version of Heisenberg.
So I hope our friend likes the ornament! Great memories - and especially since we finished the season right before Christmas! If you have a Breaking Bad fan friend (who is likely still suffering from depression since the show ended) then you can easily make them this ornament!
