Oh, hooray, it’s Christmas time again…let the crafting commence!
No, we don’t have our tree yet, thanks for asking, but I’m not going to let that stop me! I have the tiny tree plugged in and these little ornaments have a temporary home until the big tree arrives!
We’ve been making ornaments like crazy over here, and this one might be my favorite, although I was partial to the birdies as well. I had some felt left from the wreath I made and I also had a lot of loose buttons, so I made up a few little felt ornaments for the tree. (Which we don’t have yet, as I mentioned. Tomorrow I hope!)
Step 1: Cut out two hearts.
Step 2: Sew a button on one heart.
Step 3: Sew the hearts together with a simple stitch. At the top, stick the ribbon in and keep stitching to secure.
Step 4: When you get about 2/3 of the way done, stuff with cotton balls.
Step 5: Keep stitching the rest of the way around. When you get to the end, tie a little knot and conceal it.
Step 6: Hang on the tree!
