half eaten ornaments

12.06.2010

Here's our half eaten gingerbread men!  I love projects that have a bit of humor in them.  Sometimes you just need a good laugh.  And the girls love these. 




I made a couple extra to attach to some Christmas presents.  They were so fun, I even officially learned how to tie a french knot. 


I used my Grandma's baby ric rac and some vintage red buttons I had scored at an estate sale last year. I also used the ric rac as the hanger, just sewed it in when I was stitching the gingerbread man's head together.  This was a super cheap project, I only had to buy the felt which I think was about $1.  Niiiice.


I think that'll be all my handmade ornaments this year.  There are so many cute tutorials and patterns and kits out there it's hard to choose.

  3. That is the cutest thing I've seen in forever! Love the whimsy and the price! I like to tie ornaments on each of the gifts to family members. I think I'm going to work on making these throughout next year so I'll be ready for next Christmas. That'll give me time to score some cute buttons, too!

  25. I've had those gingerbread men on my 'to-do' list for a couple years and had almost forgotten about them! Next year maybe... :D Love yours, there's something delightfully subversive about them amongst the usually very traditional Xmas projects that abound at this time of the year.

  37. What a fun project. And I love the idea of tying them to packages. Cute wrapping is fun but usually kindof expensive. These are cheap and shippable (which I'm sure is not a word). So fun! Now if only I can find the time to make them...
