OK, now these here are the best ornaments ever if you want a specific color of ornament and you want that whole homespun look for your tree and you’re lacking in time, energy, funds, etc. So, you know, these are perfect for… well, pretty much every Christmas every year!
Since we’ve got Jack’s room pretty much finished up now, I thought it would be fun to put a tree up in his room and do a little Christmas decorating up there too. Unfortunately, the tree that was on its way to my house that was going to go in his room seems to be stuck in customs right now and might not make it here in time for Christmas. We’ve already got 2 full-size trees up in the house, so it’s not a big big deal if we don’t get the third up this year. I did manage to get quite a few cute ornaments together that would look good in his room though. They’ll still look great next year too, so I’m all set for then!
I pulled together some different ornaments from my stash to fill out the tree, but I wanted to do one type of DIY ornament that would match the fabrics I’m already using in there to give the tree a fancy custom look. Of course, that didn’t mean that I wanted to put in any real time or effort, I just wanted it to look awesome and cute and take about 5 minutes. Is that so much to ask? Nope!
All you need to gather is a few ornaments that you won’t be using this year, some squares of fabric, and a ribbon. That’s it!
Gather the fabric around the ornaments, tie with a ribbon, and fluff it out!
Bingo! Homespun cuteness perfect for a baby boy’s room!
..or a one year old’s room next year. 🙂
So this is officially my new favorite ornament trick. You can turn your existing ornaments into anything you want!
