(8) Make your own ornaments



This year I have been pretty crafty and wanted to incorporate my hobbies into our tree. I used some of my fabric scraps, traced it around a paper cup and cut out circles. then I did the same with the batting but used the smaller end of the cup. I then sewed them together (right sides out), with the batting in the middle and cut ends with pinking shears. You could sew in a looped ribbon to make a hook or sew a button in the middle and wrap ribbon around it and create a garland (As shown above). In this months edition of Blueprint magazine they give another direction on how to make fabric ornaments (Shown below), for details click HERE.
