Today's Christmas Craft Idea

Handmade ornaments are so special, and if you add a cherished photo they become great keepsakes and gifts! I made this cute little ornament out of stiff felt I cut into a scalloped circle. Then I embellished it with red and green papers, glitter, chipboard shapes, buttons, and bakers twine. I added a photo of my son (tip: changing the photo to black and white or sepia will help it to stand out better on a colorful ornament.) the glittery star (a holiday floral pick from the craft store) and hung it from some red tinsel. I also ran a string of little pearls around the edge to finish it off. It was so quick and easy to make, and what a wonderful gift for grandmas, aunts, etc.

Pink Paislee is doing a 12 days of Christmas ornament idea fest on their blog. Be sure to check it out for some more inspiration! (see blog list for link)

I'd love to see some of your handmade Christmas creations. Send me a photo and I'll put you on the blog and send you a little goodie from the shop!
