Make your own Christmas ornaments! This kit comes with supplies to make four ornaments of children with fleece hats and matching fleece jackets. Includes wooden ball with drawn eyes and smile for face, fleece fabric for hat and body, small elastic to cinch hat at top of ball, and christmas tree ornament hanger. The only thing you need to supply is a little glue to secure the hat to the top of the wooden ball, and scissors to slit the pom pom on top of the hat.
This is a simple no sew project that you will enjoy putting together as much as you will enjoy on your tree!
See text directions for assembly below or review a narrated presentation of the assembly instructions: Christmas Child Ornament Mitsy Kit Assembly Instructions
Step 1: String the wooden ball onto the fleece fabric that came attached with a safety pin by inserting the safety pin and ribbon through the hole closest to the tactile dot (this tactile dot indicates the back, bottom side of the head). Push the safety pin up through top of the hole and pull until the fleece is just peeking up out of the top hole a bit. Remove the safety pin.
Step 2: You will be glueing the fleece hat to the top and back side of the wooden ball in the next steps: First, put a small amount of elmers glue on the top part of the wooden ball around the hole and on the fabric peeking through the hole, as well as the back side of the ball above the tactile dot. (Tip try not to get glue on fingers, either use glue dispenser or a paint brush to apply otherwise your fingers may stick to the fleece.)
The hat is a small piece of fleece wrapped in half with a small elastic cinched around the top third of the hat to form a pom pom. The back of the hat is where the two end sections of the fleece overlap in a slight V shape. Slide this back section of the hat over the back side of the wooden ball (where the tactile dot is located) and angle the front top of the hat so that it just covers the top hole and slightly below it. Do not pull too far front of the hole or you may cover the face. Press on so that glue holds the hat in place.
Step 3: If you would like to make the top of the hat look like a fringed pom pom you can use small scizzors to make small diagonal slits in the fleece fabric above the elastic band to make small fleece strips. Just make sure not to cut the elastic.
Step 4: To attach your ornament hanger, simply loop one of the wire hooked ends under the elastic at the front center of the hat. Then hang to display.
