This week we are sharing last minute ornament ideas for the season
Please help welcome our next guest in the series,
Lindsay from Southern Lovely
Well hello there! I feel very honored to have this opportunity to be here on Stephanie’s wonderful blog!
I’m Lindsay, and I blog over at Southern Lovely. Being a busy mom of three, crafting is sometimes hard to come by. I love a good DIY, painting or sewing project. I usually do my best work after the kids have gone to bed. 🙂
Spray paint (optional)
To begin, put a little hot glue at the top of your ornament to secure your yarn, then start wrapping. You will want to add hot glue every so often, it will help so the yarn stays in place. I noticed that the glittery ornaments wrapped so much easier then the plain ones. I also noticed that once you are 3/4 of the way through, it get’s kind of hard & takes a little patience. So stick with it, and you will have adorable little ornaments before you know it. 🙂
Now for the frame, I used an old one that needed a bit of color to it, so I sprayed it a bright, cheery green. Then string your new ornaments on jute, and hot glue the jute to the back of the frame.
