One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to make an annual Christmas ornament for our tree and to give as gifts to some of our family and friends. Some years I dream up something on my own and then other years I see the perfect ornament in a magazine or blog. This year, a couple weeks back, I was blog hopping and found this year's ornament compliments of Laurie Schmidlin of Just Give Me Stamps.
Isn't it darling? Love! Thanks Laurie!
If you have a circle die, a snowflake die, like this one from The Cat's Pajamas, and some felt...you're good to go! Not only is this ornament cute, but I already had the tools and supplies. Gotta love it when there's nothing else to buy!
While Laurie machine stitched her ornaments, because she's probably a whiz at the sewing machine, I opted for a blanket stitch because my sewing machine hates me! ;) I also used some twine for my hanger while Laurie used jute, I think. And I added a little tag for the year. Both versions lovely! I bet you could get creative and use something different for the center, like another smaller snowflake, and use a different color felt. Imagine pink, cream and blue! I have only a few colors and a deep purple didn't seem to fit the spirit of Christmas!
Do you make ornaments? You can always start a new tradition this year! In all your spare time! ;) If you need some ideas, I've seen a lot on Pinterest! Thanks for stopping by today!
