Kid Friendly No Sew Christmas Tree Ornament

I love Christmas – I really, really do.  But this year has been rough for me to get into the groove.  We went on vacation over Thanksgiving and that really through me for a loop as I usually have a lot of stuff done prior to that point.  Add to that both of our dogs passing away this year and I have been having a super hard time getting in the spirit.  I signed up to participate in a DIY ornament swap with some other bloggers and have been dragging my feet.  Well tonight – I found inspiration in Kiddie Foodies ornament found here and decided to create my own.

I decided to make an even easier version of their ornament.  I even used all materials I already had in the house from previous projects.  Don’t you love when you can create something else and not spend any money??  I do 🙂  I made these to send out to the other bloggers in the ornament swap but also for my kids.  The material was from their Christmas outfits in 2013.

Some people – myself included don’t let their small children using hot glue guns.  I know others do.  I think this craft would be perfect for bigger kids on their own or for smaller children under closer supervision.   I love how the ornaments came out and can’t wait to get them in the mail!
