At our house, our Christmas Tree is a loved and celebrated decoration. Our little family has a tradition of climbing multiple mountains, typically in ankle (sometimes knee) deep snow until we find the perfect tree for our little home. We take lots and lots of pictures of us pulling and tugging the tree down the hill as we maneuver our cherished find around tree stumps, twigs and the other trees on the mountain side.
Once we have our perfect find home, safe and sound, the excitement really takes place. With Christmas tunes serenading us in the background and giggles and excitement in the air, the lights and ornaments are hung as our whole family dresses our tree for the Christmas season. Some ornaments are homemade, some are store bought, and some we still aren’t sure where they came from, but they are loved just the same. As we prepare to decorate our tree this year, I decided it would be fun to add a couple additional homemade decorations to our collection.
These Chevron Flower Christmas Ornaments are another FABulous project that will cost you less than $5.00, be completed in 5 steps and in just under 5 minutes. They are so cute, so fun, and so perfect for your tree or to give as a gift for a friend or family member!
All you need is…
Chevron Chiffon Flowers
I used Red and Green, Red, and Grey
Fold Over Elastic, Printed
I used Red Chevron
Let’s learn how…
1. Cut a strip of elastic. (I cut approximately a 6″ strip.) Fold elastic in half and hot glue or stitch the ends of the elastic with wrong sides together.
2. Hot glue the elastic to the back of one of the flowers.
*The elastic hanger is fantastic. It makes hanging your ornament so easy, because you can stretch the elastic when placing it around a branch…instead of having to retie a string that broke when you tried to hang it on a branch. 🙂
3. Hot glue the second, matching, flower to the flower in step 2. Press firm to make sure the flowers and elastic are all secure.
4. Optional: Find the center of the flowers and hot glue matching buttons (or other embellishment) to the center.
5. Hang adorable Christmas ornament on your tree or wrap it up to give as a lovely handmade gift.
There you have it…a fun, festive, and FAST holiday project for under $5.00, in 5 steps, and in under 5 minutes! These FABulous flowers come in a ton of beautiful colors to match any tree. You could also create these flowers for everyday decorations as well. They would look amazing hanging in your little girls room to add color and texture with their great chevron design.
