Hi everybody!   Are you looking for a Christmas ornament to make?   A few weeks ago I was asked by Vicki from 2 Bees in a pod to join in a Two Day Christmas Ornament Blog Hop.  How fun is that?  Don’t forget to scroll down to see what amazing ornaments my blogging friends have made!!!

Growing up my mom always encouraged my sisters and I to make something at Christmas to give to grandparents or friends.  I still find there is something really meaningful about taking the time to create a craft for someone else or to just decorate my house with:).  Making Christmas Ornaments from Embroidery hoops was by no means my idea originally but it’s a great craft to start with and you can make it as easy or challenging as you want!!!  All you need is some embroidery hoops (around a $1 each at your local craft store), scrap fabric (I raided my thrift store donation bags), and some embroidery thread.

I used tartan (love tartan), velvet, and wool fabric for my ornaments. The plaid tartan and velvet were from a hand-me down Christmas dress that Audrey would never have worn and the wool from a sweater that no longer fits Jason. I made the velvet and tartan ones years ago but I made the green Christmas tree this year.  These are crazy easy to make I wasn’t even sure I needed to add any instruction but I did:).

1) Place your fabric inside of the hoop and cut around the back of the hoop.  Pretty self explanatory:).  That’s all I did for my tartan one above.

2) Using embroidery thread I stitched around the tree I cut out.

I embroidered the “L” to my black velvet ornament.  I love the contrast of the white thread against the black velvet.  Here is a picture of it from last years Christmas tour.  Our Christmas tree isn’t up yet.  We get ours the day after Thanksgiving:).  I will be sharing our Christmas tour on November 30th so I am praying for good weather so I will have a tree for our home tour!

I hung our ornaments inside on our old door turned coat rack till we get our Christmas tree.  I think they look prettier there than the coats do:).
