one of my favourite traditions i started with my kids is, every year we add a collection of handmade ornaments to our tree. one year we decided to add some glitter to our tree by covering foam balls in glue and rolling them in glitter, and adding ribbon for hanging. 4 years later we still hang them on our tree and laugh about the fact that we found glitter on everything for the next 4 years!
the felt mittens are easy to make...i think the idea originally came from a martha stewart magazine.
simply find felt in the colour of your choice, cut out a mitten shape, sew 2 together using a blanket or whip stitch, using a contrasting colour felt, create a mitten cuff but cutting a rectangle shape and gluing it on the base of hte mitten, i then glued 3 buttons onto the front and attached a ribbon for hanging. super easy, super simple, and completely adorable :)
salt dough and once baked painted with white paint, sprinkled with glitter and added some baler twine for hanging.
so go...go create beautiful memories to fill your tree with and perhaps to gift to others! would love to see what you create or hear your stories from ornaments created in the past...so please feel free to share in the comments section!
