Homemade Ornaments

Since this was the first year the boyfriend and I had our own tree, there was lots of ornament making around here. I've already shared a couple I've made, but here are a few more I've made... (and I made all of them very quickly and with supplies I already had)!

Poinsettia felt flower ornament - I made this using the template from Kaboose that I found here. (And the free template is still up so you can get your own!)

Candy Cane felt ornament (sewed up with embroidery floss) - I made this using the free template/pattern from Bugs and Fishes here. I like all the floss and I had the ombre kind - the dark to light red one here - and so I made all my stitches obvious and on the front. 

It's all purple and orange around here! I made this one (and the next two felt ones - the blue and the pink) using the free templates from Bugs and Fishes here. I like her versions better, but I was going for quick and easy and I think mine are still fairly pretty! 

I put some Mod Podge on this one and then covered it in glitter! (It's the same blank glass ornament underneath that I used to make these red ornaments.)

I put Mod Podge on this one and added the white and clear glitter... I probably should have kept adding, but again, I was impatient... 

I finally finished the sequin ornaments with the puppy names on them - this is Bella's!

And this is the rest of the ornament/the other side of it.

And this is Max's ornament - the "A" and "X" anyways!

Hope you enjoyed the little tour of handmade ornaments I made recently... hopefully I'll get more patience and make more ornate ornaments for next year's tree!
