Tutorial: Sewing Pin Christmas Ornaments

Christmas ornaments are so much more special when they are personalized. If you're looking for a simple DIY ornament, this project is for you!

  • Foam spheres
  • Sewing pins - I used ones with white tops, but you have plenty of options. The larger your sphere, the more pins you will need.
  • A hole puncher - I used one that punches flower-shaped holes
  • Paper in the color of your choice
  • Ribbon

The first thing you'll need to do is punch holes in your paper. I picked up this cute flower hole puncher at Michael's so the sewing pins would look like the centers of the flowers.

Some of the ornaments I made were entirely red, some were entirely green, and some were red, green, and white. The color choices are entirely up to you.

Once you have enough punch-outs, begin pinning them into your foam ornament.

I pinned a sparkly red ribbon on the top of the ornament so I can hang it from my tree.

November Etsy Update

Fall is always an exhausting time for me. We attended Delmar's Heritage Day and the (very soggy) Apple Scrapple Festival, but unfortunately have no photos to show for it. We're busy getting ready for the holiday season.

First, I made a super cute Christmas Treasury. Check it out!

I also listed 9 more pairs of earrings. It's never too early to begin planning Christmas gifts :)
