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.

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 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. The actual time spent crafting and expense are minimal considering the results you will achieve with very little effort. Have fun!

Crafter's Note: I happened to find the glass ornaments at a yard sale, where I paid fifty cents for four. The original price was ninety-nine cents each. Retail price is still not bad considering how much you pay for ornaments these days.

Approximate Time Painting - 15 - 30 minutes. Drying - depends on weather, in humid weather it will take a few days. The final assembly takes about 5 - 10 minutes.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Carefully remove the gold fixture at the top of your ornament. Choose your paint colors and, using one at a time, drip some on the inside glass at the top of the ornament. Use enough paint so that it will run down inside the ornament. As the paint moves, twist and turn the ornament to swirl the paint - this takes a little patience, but you can't make a mistake. You will swirl one paint color before adding another and all of your designs will be different.
  2. Ad

  3. When the ornament is painted to your liking, turn it upside down over a small plastic or paper cup to allow the excess paint to drain. Check the ornament every so often and wipe any paint that has collected around the top on a paper towel. Allow the ornament to sit in the top of the cup until the paint is dry.
  4. When the paint has dried, insert the gold fixture and use wired ribbon (I liked the look of wide ribbon) to tie a bow around the top. Glue the ribbon in place and add an ornament hook.
