White felt figure skate tree ornament.

Approximate Time: Half an hour

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Cut out two pieces of felt in a boot shape as shown.

  2. For each skate, slip the felt through the paper clip and glue along the side edges to secure.

  3. Using all six strands of embroidery thread, use an overcast stitch to make the laces, leaving enough thread to tie in a bow so that you can hang it on your tree.

Where is the pattern, please?

Editor's Note: I'm sorry but there is no longer a pattern attached for this post. It is a very simple shape so we have reworded the craft instructions rather than take down this cute older post.

Everytime I drank one of the Dannon Drinkable yogurts this year I thought the bottles were shaped like little snowmen.

So, I saved them along with various plastic caps from milk and creamers that I glued on top and just added little magic marker eyes and buttons and tied on various ribbons and other scrap materials I had in my wrapping or fabric box and. I made little snowmen ornaments from the recycle bin. It's frosty and his friends.

Easy enough to be made by children too!

Great for around the house, under the tree or on the tree with a hook or string!

You may roll up cash and insert it inside as a money gift wrap, as well, if you don't glue the hats on.

I like them simple, but you can get as detailed as you'd like and could even personalize them like family members (with their names at the bottom, etc. and add them to as place cards at your table.

Ho ho ho- let the holldays begin!

These would look cute as tree ornaments too. You'd just need to make a hole for the hook through the top of the cap. Great idea to reuse something rather than it going into the landfill. Thanks for sharing.

These beautiful ornaments would make a lovely addition to any holiday tree. You can make them to keep or give away. You have to make them in stages, over the course of a few days only because the paint is on the inside and needs time to dry completely.

An old curtain ring made into a Christmas decor. First I washed them then let them dry (alternatively painted them) then sketch a design on it with glue and sprinkled with glittering dusts.

Attach a ribbon formed in bowtie and glue with a pearl or button (alternatively twined with tube cleaner). Tie a silver, gold, a crochet thread so it is easy to hang on the Christmas tree or in windows.

My kids did a project like this for Christmas. They put a felt back on it, and added a photo inside of it.
