DIY Shabby Chic Ornament

My daughters' room is already decorated in pink and green shabby chic, so I kept that theme going with their Christmas decor. At the National Apple Harvest Festival in PA, I bought the cutest bell ornament. It was a simple bell with a gingham bow glued to the top. I immediately knew I wanted to make more in pink and white for my girls' tree. It's a very simple DIY ornament project that beginner crafters can easily make. You can make it even easier by not painting the bells.



Materials:

-a pack of round Christmas bells

-gingham ribbon

-ornament hooks, twine or string

-hot glue or fast-drying craft glue

-craft paint or spray paint


Instructions:

1. Place a hook or tie string or twine in the top.

2. Paint with craft glue or spray paint and let dry. (I like to let it dry on bubble wrap.)


3. Cut your ribbon into at least an eight inch strip so you can tie it into a small bow and have plenty left-over to trim.

4. Make the pretty inverted V-shape at the end of the bow by folding the end in half then cutting diagonally at a 45 degree angle.



5. Glue it onto the top of the ornament with hot glue of craft glue and let dry.


Viola! Now you just need to find a cute little elf to hang it on the tree:
