If you've been following this blog for a while, you'll know that this is only our second year with a Christmas tree. After the tree toppling incident of last year I've totally sworn off glass ornaments. Instead, we've been using our snowed-in days to craft up a bunch of handmade, unbreakable ornaments for our tree.
To make your own (or have your kids make one!)-- grab a copy of the Classic Felt Ornament template from my fb page by using this link. (You'll have to be a MIH fan)
Cut the ornament out of felt using the template. You can also use construction paper for a completely no-sew project. Hand over the glue and glitter and have your kids go to town! They can decorate both sides of the for a doublesided ornament.
My son took his job very, very, very seriously.
All that's left to do is hang and enjoy. I know these aren't the most beautiful ornaments out there-- but they are the first handmade ones my kids have done, and I just love them to pieces. We had so much fun making them and will have wonderful memories of a snowed in afternoon. I hope you all download the template, and get crafting this week as well!
