I had been seeing all sorts of fun little handmade ornament tutorials, so I thought I would try my own. Except, I don't know if these are actually 'handmade' since they stem from real ornaments.
Whatever though, they turned out pretty cute.
Ornaments--old or new, I picked these up at Target's dollar section
To begin, put a little hot glue at the top of your ornament to secure your yarn, then start wrapping. You will want to add hot glue every so often, it will help so the yarn stays in place. I noticed that the glittery ornaments wrapped so much easier then the plain ones. I also noticed that once you are 3/4 of the way through, it get's kind of hard & takes a little patience. So stick with it, and you will have adorable little ornaments before you know it. :)
I really love how they turned out. I actually like seeing the hint of color beneath the yarn. Gives it a little something extra.
I decided to display them in the new cloche that I picked up at a thrift store.
You could also stack them in a glass jar.
So many possibilities!
And do you love how it looks on my snowflake runner??
Happy holiday crafting, friends!
