What is your Christmas Inspiration?

Everyone loves cute tree ornaments and they become more special if they are handmade! I was inspired to make something for my tree this year that was cute and traditional, so decided to do these “Mini Gift Ornaments” with some recycled boxes.

Introduction

Make these cute and Super Easy Christmas Ornaments in less than 10 minutes!

Materials Used

Wooden Beads (1 Inch or more) Wooden Buttons (1 Inch or more) Fine Ribbon Scissors

Tutorial Directions

Cut two 18″ Strips of Ribbon

Double it and, Put through the bead

String the Ribbon stands two through each button hole

Once done pull the bead up to the desired loop length

Tie a knot with all four ribbon strands

Trim the tail

That’s all, Your Ornament is DONE!!

Conclusion

You may also use twine instead of ribbon, or use more stands, or even decorate the beads with glitter!

Have Fun!

Good afternoon everyone! This is the fourth annual Etsy Christmas In July Party that we have a swag bag especially for you! What party is complete without a gift to take home with you to remember the day?

This year your swag bag is filled with Christmas Inspired printables that were created by Etsy Christmas In July team members!

Claire of CrochetHomeStudio:

Christmas Inspiration: Here is the start of my new Christmas collection patterns to crochet and knit. I decided to start from the top with this fantastic star design. Festive green lights behind to help make the star pop out. This would make a lovely festive gift when made up. I have chosen the full word guide and instruction sheet. Hoping I am not to late to join the party Happy Crafting to you all!

Emma of StudioEmmaKaufmann:

Christmas Inspiration – Christmas Guinea Pig

Gina of ArigigiPixel:

Christmas Inspiration – Long winter nights with show!

Kelly of ColourscapeStudios:

Christmas Inspiration – I’ve been inspired to create this International Christmas gift tag by the CIJ team members who spread across the globe.

Mary of StockLaneStudio:

Christmas Inspiration – Christmas means sparkles and lights as family and friends gather to celebrate and feast. SLS’s printable JPG NOËL design ads the right amount of pink and sparkle. Perfect for email and social media messages, but prints out to 11×14 inches or smaller and looks crisp and beautiful for cards, tags and wall art. C

Christmas Inspiration – Christmas Candle light printable stationery.

Christmas Inspiration – Christmas-themed customer appreciation tags: thank you for your order wreath.

Megha of byTheArtBug:

Christmas Inspiration = Inspired by my favourite Christmas Decor “Christmas Baubles”!

Patty of  PupcakesBowWowtique:

Christmas Inspiration – My family has always been my Christmas inspiration. We have traditions that I remember as a child and have continued with my own children. It’s a season of giving and selflessness. A very peaceful time of year.
