Christmas Ornaments

Back at home and trying to get back to some normalcy. We dropped off our middle child and his fiance at the airport this morning. My other son will be leaving in two days but he's visiting with his in-laws for the rest of that time. We had the twins for a dinner visit tonight. So tomorrow I'll have to get my wrapping and Christmas things back in order and the laundry done. I thought I would share some ornaments that I made for the kids packages. 

I found these on Pinterest and thought they'd make cute ornaments. So I added them to all the kids' packages. You use a 3/4 inch piece of toilet paper tube and cut 9 inch pieces of yarn and wrap them around the tube with a Larks head knot. When you've covered the entire tube you tie another iece of yarn toward the top of all the strands. Then tuck all the strands into the tube. It forms the hat. You may have to straighten some of the strands. Then add the pom pom to the top. I used a Lawn Fawn alphabet die to add Valerie and Arthur's initials. I am entering these challenges:
Later this week we'll be traveling back to Cincinnati to help my FIL take down his Christmas decorations and get his house back in order. I'm looking forward to next week when things really get back to normal. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. Here comes 2018!

Hi Donna, My DH is from the Cincinnati area (long time ago now!) I'm so glad you had a wonderful Christmas. I expect next year the little ones will really be into the holiday and have some idea of what it's all about (as far as the lights and gifts go!) Love the special toppers you made for the packages. I don't know what a Lark's head knot is, but I like the cozy way these cuties looked! Happy New Year and hope that 2018 is a banner year for you. TFS & Hugs
