DIY Holiday Ornaments

The Holiday Season is upon us and a lot of people like to make their own ornaments and gifts. Here are a couple festive ideas!



It’s a cute little felt gingerbread house Christmas ornament. But WAIT, there’s more!  The roof comes off and dun da da duh……it’s the home of some cute little gingerbread people!!!

You will need:

* felt (the type and colors I used are listed on the pattern)

* embroidery floss in white, beige, red, and dark brown

* tiny buttons for gumdrops (I got these at Michaels. I included a small circle on the pattern if you would rather cut them out of felt)

* Tape

To stiffen felt, you will need:

* felt

* white school glue

* warm water

* old container

* wax paper

* iron and ironing board

Note-Try making the gingerbread house ornament with colored paper, markers and glue for the younger ones. Just cut out the floor and walls as one piece then fold up and glue corners with the white strips.
