As you know, I love Christmas ornaments. I usually purchase them, but this year I decided that I wanted to make a few as well. I am always taken by miniature wreath ornaments, so when The Ribbon Retreat offered to send me some Baker’s Twine for a project I knew just what I wanted to do with it. Prepare yourself for a very quick and easy project!
* Baker’s Twine
* Shower rings (Tiny wreath forms are expensive and difficult to find, so when I saw somewhere—can’t remember where, sorry—that someone used shower rings instead I thought it was brilliant. If they are too skinny for your liking you could use fat yarn to wrap your ornament, either underneath your Baker’s Twine or in lieu of it.)
* Embellishments. You could use buttons, jingle bells, rhinestones, etc. I used cute Christmas resins from The Ribbon Retreat.
* Hot glue gun and glue.
Now cut a length of Baker’s Twine in a contrasting color and tie it in a loop with a small bow. Put a dot of glue behind the bow and glue it to the ring so that it will stay in place and the resin won’t weigh it down.
DONE! Can you believe it?! Would you like to see how I packaged these cute little ornaments? Well, go check out The Ribbon Retreat’s Blog where I have guest posted about sewing cute little gift bags for neighbor gifts.
