It's Christmas in July ~ I Love Christmas. If you are already planning your Christmas crafting like I am here are some ideas for homemade ornaments.
The first one is a skate made of felt. I stitched a silver pipe-cleaner into the bottom of the skate as the skate's blade and threaded silver ribbon right through the felt to make the laces. http://www.craftelf.com/Christmas_ornament_Felt_Skate.htm
Next, is a pair of mittens cut from felt then I used the blanket stitch to outline each mitten. Then, draw some holly on the mittens with fabric paint http://www.craftelf.com/Craft_elf_Holiday_Christmas_Mitten_ornament.htm
This is one of my favorites ~ Ribbon Candy! It looks so realistic and holds up great over the years. It's made with ribbon, beads and thread. Very inexpensive and quick to make. Give a set as a gift or attached them to the top of a gift in place of a bow. http://www.craftelf.com/Ribbon_Candy_Ornament.htm
