Christmas gifts I made - wreath ornaments


























These were not only a great way to get rid of small scraps, but my son made some with me, so I loved making these! Jack made 3, one for each of his 2 teachers, and one he kept for himself. He got such a kick out of "sewing" these himself with a real needle, and he picked out each piece himself. I had to tie them in a circle for him & add the hanging loops, but he strung them all himself! I am kicking myself for not getting a picture of the ones he made for his teachers, but the orange & red one below is the one he made for himself with his favorite colors :)

Love the wreaths! We made a similar garland for the tree, and the kid helped... so fun to watch them work!

Brilliant idea to do with the kids! My granddaughter will love it -- she like to "needle" with me.

I was actually surprised he wanted to! My son is the anti-craft :(

What a great scrap idea! I am definitely going to borrow that one, as my daughter (almost 4) is always wanting to sew with me. This is definitely something she could do. Thanks.
