I needed some kid friendly ornaments. No breaking, no shattering, no small pieces. So...I went with the perennial favorite: stuffed fabric Christmas ornaments. I used Nutcracker fabric and Christmas Tree fabric made by Michael Miller. I cut out the shapes I liked the best, sewed the edges, stuffed with batting and closed them up. I used a little embroidery floss to hang them with. Super simple and fast. Plus they add lots of bright colors and shapes without having to worry weather the kids are going to break them. My girls current favorite Christmas Tree activity is taking all the ornaments off the lower part of the tree and wrapping them up for presents to give to each other so these fit the bill nicely ;), and I get to see some of my favorite Christmas fabrics for years to come.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
