More inspiring handmade ornaments (& it’s National Cupcake Day!)

I don’t usually blog on a Thursday, but I wanted to be sure you don’t miss out Stephanie Lynn’s magical Handmade Ornament Series this week. I’ve been inspired by the beautiful and creative ideas I’ve seen so far on Under the Table & Dreaming, and I think you will be, too. Stephanie Lynn’s team of bloggers transform paper, cardboard tubes, craft sticks, glitter, even spoons into sparkling gems for the tree.

I’m a guest on Stephanie Lynn’s blog Under the Table & Dreaming today, and I’ve shared with her readers our short-cut technique for making needlefelted ornaments. Stephanie Lynn includes the tutorial for Rebekah Meier’s Red & White Needlefelted Ornaments. (This is always a favorite color combo of mine.)

    Beautiful ornaments.
    I didn’t have felt on hand so I used what I had handy; quilt batting to cover my ornament balls.
    I just sprayed with spray adhesive and formed my batting around the balls.
    Thank you sor such great inspiration.
    Quick and easy ornaments to secure on wrapped gift or add to gift baskets.
