Fast Holiday Ornaments

When Vincent was about 2 or 3, I made ornaments out of Model Magic and with some encouragement, he painted them. They turned out really cute and we still have one on our fridge. His little sister, Ava, is a little more interested in coloring, so I found this ornament tutorial and changed it slightly. Thanks Kristi, from OCD: obsessive crafting disorder!

Step 1: Use a large coffee cup to trace large circles. Draw a holiday picture for your favorite 2 year old to color.

2. Scan your artwork and print using printer-friendly fabric sheets. I found some at Joann's. They are super cheap with that 40% coupon.

3. Cut out sheets and iron to a coordinating felt. I thought the pink goes great with that light green felt.
4. Create a border by cutting out a slightly larger piece of felt. I used some glittery white felt from Joann's in the remnant section. You should check that section each time you go in!

5. Sew a zig-zag or running stitch around the edge of the green. Cut a small hole in the corner, thread your ribbon and you are done!

These can be gift-tags also!
