I have finally retired Thanksgiving Crafts. I have to admit- it makes me sad. I was so getting used to publishing turkeys that they had become part of my every day. But the internet around me has been celebrating Christmas for the past 6 weeks- EASY.
And its finally time to conform.
Or catch up rather.
Now if you missed it, I sorta pre-jumped the gun on my Cinnamon Stick Star Ornaments but now I am actually here to kick off Christmas Crafting.
First thing I want to do- give you something so easy, and so inexpensive, you probably have all these items in your house!
Back-story: About 4 months ago I bought these super cute swirly paperclips. I had planned to make some super cute book marks. But really- who uses a book mark. Everyone I know is on a Nook and everyone else (like me) just bends the corner all up like a Neanderthal, so they sat on my desk in a tin and mocked me.
Then I did one of those ‘ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh’ moments where I realized, I CAN use these darn paper clips! Now that it’s Christmas time, I can use them all over the place.
So here we go- my very first (*cough* *second* *cough*) Homemade Christmas Ornament of the new year. And prep yourself cause its gonna be a long month of this.
Paper Clip + Curly Ribbon = Cutest and Most Inexpensive Ornament Evah
- Curly Ribbon
- Paperclips ( I love these round ones, but use whatever you think is cutest)
- Scissors to curl your ribbon
Easy peasy. I think just by hearing what you need you have this figured out. Make up all your curly ribbon and then tie in a little knot around your paperclip.
Push down onto tree.
You are loving me right now, I know you are. What I so enjoy with this idea was that I can decorate all the ends of my tree branches very easily right where regular ornaments usually fall off by weight. Fancy paperclips like these just hold right to the branch!
