I’ve been collecting milk glass bud vases for years. Let’s face it, every flower looks good in a white vase! Many years ago, I had to do a dinner party on the fly and needed a centerpiece and this magic happened. I’ve been using it ever since. So fast, simple and chic! Step one, remove flowers. Step two, replace flowers with ball ornaments! Boom!
Ingredients: 1 piece of card stock
6 (4×4) felt squares
1 pair scissors
1 skein of embroidery floss
1 small threading needle
an assortment of craft flare (sequins, mini pom poms, colored beads..)
What to do: Step 01: Trace or freehand a fun shape onto card stock (I made a simple round scalloped shape, but you could do anything that has an exact center).
Next, us scissors to cut out. Pro tip: The more complex the shape, the harder it is to cut out of fabric….trust me…make it simple! Step 02: Using a contrasting colored marker, trace your shape onto the felt, cut out and place aside. You’ll want to cut about 12-15 piece for one ornament. Step 03: Thread 12-15 inches of embroidery floss through your needle. Add some fun flair and knot off at one end. Pro tip: You may need to make a few knots depending on the opening of your bottom flair! Step 04: Thread your needle though 3 to 5 felt shapes. Repeat steps 03 and 04 until satisfied.
Step 05: Once satisfied with steps 03 and 04, add the last bit of flair and tie off. Create a loop at the top for easy tree adorning! How stinkin’ cute are these on a tree!!
