Easy Christmas Ornaments

 
Here are some ideas for quick, quick Christmas ornaments.  This make cute ornaments or even package tie-ons.
 
 
The supplies you need for this are:  wooden spools, silver cording, stick-on Christmas stickers, old sheet music, Mod Podge, white acrylic paint, orange acrylic and black acrylic, scissors, silver jingle bells and paintbrush.
 
 
Start off by painting one spool with white acrylic.  The other one you need to cut a strip of vintage sheet music to fit the inside of the spool and Mod Podge it to the spool.
 
 
Cut a 12" piece of the silver cord.  Take one end and run down thru the top of the spool and thru the bottom.  Thread it thru the top of a silver bell and run back up thru the spool.  Tie a knot in the upper part to form a loop.
 
 
At this point you will add the glittered star with the Christmas Santa on it.  I bought these in a package of 30+ at Michaels, so it will make quite a few.  They come with a foam sticky on the back.  Just adhere it and this one is done.
 
 
Now go to the one you have painted white.  Add the cord and bell as in the first one.  Then, paint a very simple snowman face using black for the eyes and mouth and orange for the nose.
 
Second one done!!
 
 
The last one is a silver ornament that has the same face painted on it. Easy, eh?
 
The silver cord and bells and silver ball all make a cute set with them all have some silver somewhere.
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

Do you dream crafts in your sleep? Is that how you come up with so many ideas? I've been dreaming that I'm trapped in a shopping mall and can't find an exit.

Oh my goodness - Linda and Judy come here. I love your spools. Cool idea. So you can get that at a large grocery store - it is expensive, but good. sandie

Very pretty, Judy! I've started saving my spools when they are done so I can do something similar {at some point}. I don't have too many yet and they are plastic, but I think once they are decorated it won't matter. Now I need to find something to do with the wine corks I've been saving!

Hi Judy,
Love your snowman ornament and since I have at least a dozen wooden spools and even more bells hanging around, I think I will be making some of these!
