Tag Archives: How to make your own ornaments

Quote of the day:

Happy {Happy} hump day Jaderbugs! I absolutely could not wait to share this tutorial with you. I know everyone is scrambling around getting things prepared just perfectly for Christmas and if you are like me then you like to give homemade gifts. Boy {or girl} do I have the easiest homemade ornament you could ever make today. See below, these cutsie patootsie little snowmen {or women} with their furry hats on, bedazzled ear muffs and a happy smile? Wait, there is not smile…. BUT, I know they are smiling because wouldn’t you if you looked this cute..

Let’s get started.

INGREDIENTS:

*Glass Ornaments
*Glue Gun
*Twine
*Fixings
*Jewels
*Feather Boa

The first thing you will do is put a lil hot glue on the top of the ornament like I did below.

Carefully start wrapping your feather boa around the ornament. You can go as low or as high as you can with feather boa. This is meant to look like furry little hat.
{Surely not the kind of hat you would wear in Louisiana at this time, ahah}

You can see the eyes are just some little jewelry beads. The good thing is you can decorate your eyes in any way! You can put any bead, jewel or just draw it on. Wait did I mention paint? Yeah, you can paint too… (saying that with my shoulders back :)
I used large inexpensive jewels for the ears, this will represent the “ear muffs.”

 It’s really that simple! How you think someone will feel getting this baby in a cute little box for Christmas!!!

Martha Stewart Countdown #49 Tinsel Snowflakes

Ya know. Everyone loves snowflakes! I know I do! When I was a little bitty baby girl I remember sitting in my room trying to fold paper and cut in certain spots to make them. Never turned out like I wanted. I think it’s time I try again. Maybe that will be in another post! But today we are making affordable fun crafts to add to your Christmas tree! Martha Stewart even has the template for you to use!

Tinsel isn’t just for sprinkling on an evergreen tree. Try creating this sparkling ornament to brighten any room.This tinsel glitter is so amazing. It totally reminds me of vintage crafts. You just don’t see tinsel anymore! But Martha Stewart is bringing it back {to the bottom of the map}…

Using a utility knife, cut out the snowflake shape. From this  template.

 Using a medium paintbrush, coat one side of shape with craft glue or use the tip of the glitter glue.

I used Martha Stewart’s tinsel glitter.

This is what they should look like after you cut them out.

Sprinkle with tinsel glitter. Let glue dry; shake off excess glitter. It’s already looking crazy pretty RIGHT!

Listen! I wanna design a snowflake line. I would make the best ornaments ever! Of course I would use tinsel glitter {{teehee}}

I want to eat one. They just look like something that would feel so good in my belly right now!

It’s little baby decorations  I swear I can’t type all of these blogs fast enough to show you everything I want at one time! Guess that means you will have to come back!!!
