February Christmas Ornament Tutorial
As you know, I'm on a mission to have plenty of new homemade ornaments for our tree this coming Christmas. If you haven't already, checkout my January Christmas Ornament.
Recently, we had snow here in North Carolina, although it was not enough to build a snowman, it was beautiful and we appreciate every flake we get!
The theme this month is SNOW.
You will need: shower rings (you need 2 per ornament), sharp scissors, glue gun, fabrics, buttons, beads, sticks, thread, rick rack.
(I used leftover sweater fabric.) You will need 2 fabric squares per ring.
2. Put a thick bead of hot glue around the entire edge of the shower ring.
3. Lay your 2nd piece of fabric on top.
4. Press down around the edges. I used this jar ring to keep from burning my fingers. Keep pressing until it's sealed all around.5. Using sharp scissors, cut all the way around the disk making sure not to cut into the sealed part.
6. Make 2 of these round disks for 1 ornament.
7. Glue the 2 disks together to make your snowman form.
The burlap ones are a little different. Because the burlap is see-through I added a small piece of fabric over the center of the shower ring before I added the top piece. Glue, press and cut out the disk the same way as the previous one.
Now the fun begins! Decorate your little snowmen to your hearts content. I used buttons for details, fabrics for the scarf and hat, and rickrack for the mouth. To form a ball look on some of the hats, I tied the fabric tightly with some thread the same color as the fabric.
Don't forget their backsides. You never know when an ornament might find itself in a predicament and it's backside is showing for all the world to see. I just covered the exposed areas (sticks, loop) with coordinating fabric.
I really enjoyed making these. THERAPY for me! I've been painting several rooms in our home the past few weeks.
(Hope to show you soon)
This was definitely a change of pace and a treat.
Even though I made them all about the same, they all have a
unique look about them.
If any of you guys have not tried PicMonkey yet, you should. It's a lot of fun and so easy to use, plus no registration is required. I made these collages in just a few minutes, perfect for tutorials.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are inspired.
I'll be sharing this at Wow Us Wednesdays.
