With the holidays approaching, what a perfect time to decorate your windows or tree with delicate ornaments. Elegant, yet fun, these ornaments can give your home and tree the look you desire as well as add a little class.
Cut simple desired shapes from fabric. Depending on the weight of your fabric, it may be necessary to use some fusible interfacing to give it firmness and support. If you are using cotton, you may find it best to sew two shapes together with either interfacing or a small piece of heavy cardstock or cardboard in between the layers. Sew around the edges and embellish with embroidery floss, beads, glitter, or crystal accents. You can vary the sizes and colors of your ornaments for a pretty display.
Another fun ornament idea would be to cut desired shapes as above, sew right sides together leaving a small space open to fill. Once sewn, turn the ornament right side out, push out the edges and corners, and fill with batting to give your ornament a “puffy” look. Once filled, sew the opening. Top it off with some pretty ribbon and beads to hang. This ornament can be decorated to fit your specific theme or as a single unique piece.
Perhaps you have young children at home or a Sunday School class in need of a project. Have the ornaments sewn and ready for them to decorate and fill. Wouldn’t this give them the perfect opportunity to take home and wrap up as a Christmas gift for mom or grandma?
The options and ideas are endless. Whether hanging from a window or on your tree, these ornaments are simple and fun. They can be elegant or child-like, be cut in shapes to celebrate the Christmas season, or a fun animal or other shape to display year-round. Maybe you could make some bigger shapes or letters decorated to the theme of your child’s room, attach a long string, and hang from the ceiling for a different display.
Whatever event you choose, make it fun, use your creativity, and involve your family for an easy, fun, and wonderful gift-giving idea or to use in your own home. Let the holiday spirit ring!
