Here’s all you’ll need:
-two pieces of fabric cut to a 3.5” in diameter circle
-one piece of batting cut to a 3.5” in diameter circle
**Please note: on the circles I have my edges raw because it’s fast and I like the look. If you want finished edges then cut your circles larger so you have room to turn. You also can do other shapes rather than circles, of course!
-a stencil or cut out of holiday shape (I used freezer paper). Mine was about 2” x 2”.
-glitter paint and brush—I tried the tulip shimmer fabric paint and really, really liked it! Don’t forget a coupon when you purchase it!
-ribbon for hanging your ornaments (forgot to get that in the picture)
-basic sewing supplies
First, take your freezer paper stencil and iron it onto the front of one of your outer fabrics, centered. You can use a normal stencil or even screen printing if you are making a lot of the same design.
Apply paint as per directions on the bottle. I only applied two coats of paint, but I think next time I’ll do three.
Once dry, layer the batting between the two outer fabric circles.
Cut a piece of ribbon to the desired length and insert about 1/4” down between the batting and the back circle. Pin in place and pin around the ornament.
You can change the thread color to contrast.
Or do a large zig-zag to finish the edges. Once finished, give your ornament a good pressing.
So very easy and fast! My kind of project for the holidays!
Attach an ornament to a bag of goodies or another gift.
Or make a set of four to give away.
Apart from letting the paint dry, this is really a fast project. I love the glitter paint and how simple and pretty it makes these ornaments. Happy sewing for the holidays!
