Last night I crafted my little fingers to the bones working on different Christmas gifts and decorations for our own home.
I have another gift to share with y'all today. I know you may be thinking "Another Christmas ornament?" but I've said before that I think ornaments make wonderful gifts. I found one similar to this in one of my mom's magazines and decided to make my own version. I thought it was so pretty and looked simple enough.
You will need:
- Three pieces of paper
- Hot glue gun
Step 1. Begin by making an acordion fold with each sheet of paper. The magazine version used solid colored paper but I just had to use my handy Goodwill Dictionary that has already helped me with so many projects.
Step 2. Fold each accordion folded paper in half.
Step 3. Hot glue the middle of each third closed and glue the edges of all three together to form a circle.
Step 4. Cut out a circle of felt and a smaller circle of paper. Glue the felt in the middle of the circle and the paper on top.
Step 5. Punch a whole in t top and thread some time through it.
And that's it! aren't they lovely? The circle in the middle are definitely quite imperfect (can anyone cut a perfect circle??) but I love it. Imperfections are what makes things look handmade. These really are great gifts or just a fun project for a cold, Sunday afternoon. Wouldn't these look great on your tree?
