Don’t you hate it when a blogger shares a fabulous DIY project that you’d love to do yourself but you only have, like, 5 MINUTES before you’d need the finished product?
Me too! That’s why 11 of my blogging friends and I have decided to get together and bring you 12 days of DIY Christmas ornaments for you to enjoy, ponder, and consider recreating yourself for the holidays – with plenty of time to spare!
Here’s how it’s going to work: 12 bloggers are each going to share 12 handmade Christmas ornaments over the next 12 days – giving you 144 ideas of ornaments you can make yourself to wow your friends and family this holiday season.
The first of my 12 ornaments in this series is this Mini Gift Bow Ornament, and it’s probably the easiest DIY you could possibly do this Christmas:
I found these super cute mini gift bows at Michaels in tubes of 8 for $1 and decided they needed to be hanging on my tree. The only other supply I needed was a small to medium-sized ball ornament to add them to:
I simply peeled off the paper backing of the mini gift bows and placed them onto the ornament, starting at the top and working my way down to the bottom.
I used just shy of three tubes (22 mini bows) for my ornament.
See! I wasn’t lying when I said this was super simple!*
