    Easy Christmas ornaments

    Hi, just wanted to share my Christmas ornament idea. I had bought some cookie cutters at a yard sale, Christmas themed. I also bought some Christmas colored felt. I traced the cookie cutters (tree, star, gingerbread man, angel) onto index cards, cut those out, then traced those unto the felt, making two copies of each. Then I used a beading needle, thread and some nice seed beads. I whip stitched the two felt pieces together with two beads at each stitch. For hanging, I used some decorative trim, which I tied into a knot then sewed into the top of the ornament. Before closing, I stuffed the ornaments with cotton balls.

    They turned out pretty nice!

    That's exactly what I'm doing (except with a bat cookie cutter instead of xmas shapes)! I hadn't thought of stuffing them with cotton balls, though, I thought I'd have to go buy the polyfill stuff. That's a great idea, thanks!

    also, i stuff ornaments with scraps of fleece or wool - no sense in buying some polyfill when you can use stuff you already have!
