{Handmade Christmas Ornament No. 2}

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. :)


Today I am going to share a way to create a unique ornament. I love handmade ornaments. They are so fun & different. So I took my best shot at making some.


Supplies needed:

Ornaments–old or new, I picked these up at Target’s dollar section
Yarn
Hot glue
Frame
Jute
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. :)


I really love how they turned out. I actually like seeing the hint of color beneath the yarn. Gives it a little something extra.

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.

Easy enough, right!

And now you have a fun new way to display your newly made ornaments!

Thanks so much for having me today! Enjoy this beautiful time of year!
