A video tutorial: 5 Christmas ornaments in 5 minutes!

Thank you for helping me plan our Christmas craft line up. You asked for inspiration to make Christmas ornaments, holiday topiaries, and of course, Christmas wreaths. (Jeannie won our prize package; please contact me with your mailing address.) We’ll start with making Christmas ornaments this week, and I think you’ll love our “Five Ornaments in Five Minutes” video tutorial. If you have just five minutes, please watch while Candie Cooper shows you how to make five of our most popular ornaments.

This is a great video! In just five minutes, it shows you hw to make five different ornaments. CraftsnCoffee.com

If you have just five minutes, you can learn how to make these five ornaments.

What’s not to like about making Christmas ornaments? They’re fast and oftentimes thrifty, and they make great gifts, too. Candie demonstrates how to make ornaments using materials you probably already have on hand – fabrics, paper, ribbons and buttons. I am a fan of the crisp, red & white color combination, but of course, you can change it up to include what you have on hand.

How to make ornaments

The button ornament Candie demonstrates is primarily white with a few red accents.

Make a button ornament

Follow the technique shown in the video and use the buttons you already have on hand, or match the colors to your holiday decorating scheme. We made this version with an all-red palette.

Patty Schaffer chose a sparkly red fabric for her ornament.

    Wow I never thought about using fabric for ornaments, I have so many scraps laying around, now I can put them to good use. Let’s see if I can find a spot for them
