Quick and Easy Ornaments

Thought you all might like to see a couple of the ornaments that my daughters and I made this year. These are really easy to do if any of you need quick ideas. They are on my photobucket page. The ones I am talking about are the penguin ornament and the snowgirl...

Fantastic ! Do you paint these?

RE: Quick and Easy Ornaments

Oh smick your things are sooo cute....Give

RE: Quick and Easy Ornaments

Thanks you guys. Yes I painted the faces on them.

Ok lets see...They were made from clear bulbs that I got at Michael's. The penguin ones we spray painted the bulbs black to start. The hats I bought some scarves at the dollar store. I cut them into pieces that fit around the ball with enough for a half inch or so seam. I doubled the fabric to give it more body by folding it over. after stitching them up the back I folded them and put the folded edged down over the ball ornament and hot glued it in place(covering about half the ball). Then I cut a piece of a boa to fit over the edge of the hat forming the feathery brim. Then I painted the faces and made beaded hangers like one of the girls on here made and put it on.
They were fun to make and really didn't take much time at all. I love them...they are so cute hanging on the tree.

I love them, and the boa is so sweet on there! The blue boas goes great with the penguin. Oh, and your beaded ornament hangers are cute, I love the pearly colors.
I can never find the clear ornaments, they run out so fast! I had plans to make some with feathers in them. And I haven't found any at yard sales or thrift stores that I'd be willing to bleach out :D They're too pretty and I wind up keeping them!

RE: Quick and Easy Ornaments
