No Sew Ornaments

I thought it would be fun to do a few whimsical no sew gingerbread ornaments this year. Using a cookie cutter as a template cut out two sides of felt for every ginger bread man you will make. Tie a ribbon for a hanging loop and hot glue around the edges of the pattern. Sandwich the two cut out pieces of felt and ribbon together, and use fabric paint to decorate. It's a simple and fast project sure to make anyone smile.
Remember to have fun. The secret to making fun ornaments is having fun while making them. This year I made my sister a firefighter gingerbread man ornament. Every year she asks me to make her gingerbread men that look like firefighters so it seemed fitting to make her an ornament. I hope she does not eat it. It looks like someone already took a bight out of one of my gingerbread men ;) Take care and Have fun!
