I typically put together goodie bags for my hubby’s shift at Christmastime and this year I was trying to figure out what to make. I finally decided to make homemade ornaments! They were quite simple!
I found the black ornaments at Hobby Lobby for $6.99 for a pack of 6. At the time, they had 50% off Christmas decorations, so I got them for just $3.50 per pack and I bought 3 packs. You can always check the Hobby Lobby website for a coupon as well. The ribbon was $1.99 and I used the 1/4″ in King Blue. So for $12.49, I took care of all of his shift! Woo hoo!
(Side note! If you are reading this and have a loved one on my hubby’s shift, please act surprised!)
To attach, I used a hot glue gun. You’ll want to make sure the glue gun is nice and hot before you start. Go a few inches at a time, applying glue and then pressing the ribbon on top. I found that it worked better using less glue so it didn’t squirt out the sides of the ribbon.
Once done, you could use glitter glue to write 2014 on them or add any other embellishments that you like or just keep it simple. You could also switch it up with a red ribbon for firefighters. Enjoy!
