30 Days of KAM Snaps and Beyond!!! KAM Snap Felt Christmas Ornaments

KAM Snap Felt Christmas Ornaments

Day #41

Today I am making some child-proof Christmas ornaments with KAM Snaps.  With lots of little helpful hands in my house our Christmas tree needs some durable and cute ornaments.  These ornaments remind me of ones my mom and dad had on our tree in our curious stages :).  KAM Snap Felt Christmas Ornaments to the rescue!!!

Instructions:

1.  Trace the shapes that you want on your felt.  I used large cookie cutters to give me the general shape.  I folded the felt in half and cut out double of each shape.

3.  Using a standard sewing machine I stitched around the doubled layer of felt with about a 1/8″ seam allowance and then cleaned up the edges of the felt with my scissors.

4.  Then I added KAM Snap Caps and Sockets or Studs to the front of each ornament in playful colors and patterns.

7.  Tada!  FWIW, these ornaments have already been stolen off the tree and are being hauled around by one of my youngest :).
