For Next Year... Part 2 (Initial Ornaments)

These felt ornaments are a great gift
to give friends, family members and neighbors.

Tie on the top of a gift
or give along with some yummy baked goods
for an extra special treat!

Personalized with the first letter of your friend's last name,

and a little glitter

these are sure to be a keepsake for years to come.

To make some initial ornaments of your own...
You will need:

Step 1:
Print your desired letters in the size and font of your choice. Cut the letters out to use as your template.

Step 2:
Place the letter right side down on the back of your felt and trace with a marker. Cut the letter out.

Step 3:
Pin the letter you just cut out to a piece of felt. Sandwich a piece of ribbon in between the letter and the piece of felt at the top to form the loop (that will be used to hang your ornament with).

Step 4:
Sew around the edge of the letter with your sewing machine (or by hand)and then trim the back piece of felt so it is even with the front.

Step 5:
Add some sparkle and glitter away!

Decorating our names first letter is always interesting. But once when we grew up most of them stop this practice. Keep sharing more good informative blogs. Fairfax DUI Lawyer
