25 Ornaments - Day 15


I'm late, I'm late! Yesterday was a day when a hot bath and bed felt better than anything, so I did just that. After spending like 6 hours hunched over wrapping paper and Christmas gifts, that is. I did not remember until mid-bath last night that I had not gotten an ornament posted yesterday.

For today's ornament, or rather, yesterday's ornament, I made it nice and simple.

Felt Square Ornament

You'll Need:
Pre-cut Felt shapes (I found these 4 to a pack at Michaels for $1)
Matching solid felt shape
Ribbon to loop
Hot Glue & Gun

  1. Place the two sections of felt together, and sandwich the loop of ribbon between them. For mine, I choose to do this at a corner, rather than in the middle.
  2. Glue the pieces together.
  3. Add glue to the front, and sprinkle with glitter. I used a cosemetic grade fine Green glitter I had on hand, but in the photos it looks blue.
Ta Da! A 3 step, easy peasy ornament. You can make 4 of these for around $1.50 after the cost of the pre-cut shapes and the regular felt. Michaels also had blue circles with a snowflake cut out, white doily shapes, and red squares with reindeer shapes.

Not enough to count. ;) I still have a small mountain, it feels like. I have until Friday to get the kids wrapping done, before I'm relegated to wrapping on the bed with the bedroom door locked, which I hate doing.
