Over my Fall Break I spent some time making Christmas ornaments. I love to attach ornaments to gifts at Christmas time. It just seems to make the gift even better!
This year’s ornament was inspired by one I saw at Cracker Barrel. It was a burlap ornament, but it cost $8.99 for one! I was not about to pay that. I looked at it closely and decided that I could definitely make it myself. And for WAY less that $8.99!!!
This is not one of my own, but it is exactly what I made!
- hot glue gun and sticks
- cotton balls or cotton batting
- ribbon (optional)
How to make this ornament:
- Trace two circles on to your burlap. (optional—draw a little square and half circle on the top of your circle to look like the spherical ornaments)
- Cut them out.
- Hot glue your burlap pieces together half way around.
- Fill with a little bit of cotton batting or cotton balls pulled apart a little.
- Hot glue the rest of your burlap together making sure the cotton is all inside.
- Cut any stray or extra hot glue off of the edges.
- Paint as desired.
- When dry, poke wire through both layers of burlap and twist on the ends. Make sure you leave enough wire to hang it with.
- If you would like, you can add a ribbon by tying it around the wire.
Here are some of my creations!
