Christmas Ornaments!

It's that time of year!  It's starting to look a lot like Christmas around the Herring house.  I've been decorating the house and even making some of my ornaments!  I love making ornaments to decorate my tree.  I think that it gives such a personalized touch.

The first one I made was all about Bo Bunny!  I used the Noel collection to make this one.  I just started with a store bought ornament and then added a bit of paper, some chipboard pieces, a rub-on and some of the fabulous trims from Bo Bunny.  So simple and it looks great on my tree!

A little hint about the green trim around the edges...  Just use a hot glue gun to apply the trim.  While attaching the trim, fold it in half along the stitch line and glue only the center part.  It will give you a pretty double ruffle effect.  Be sure to check out the Bo Bunny Blog for more ornament ideas from the design team!

I also made some ornaments using the FABULOUS kits at My Creative Scrapbook!  The first one is from the Main Kit and isn't it great that it also features the Bo Bunny Noel Collection?  Gotta love that collection!  I chose to put this one in a bread bowl full of potpourri, but it could be hung from the tree as well.


The next one was made using the Limited Edition Kit at My Creative Scrapbook... SUPER easy! Just take a vine from the kit and either use glue dots or hot glue to wrap it around a glass ornament. Tie a bow on the top and add a few berries! Simple and pretty!



The last one was a little ornament and card set made using the Album Kit at My Creative Scrapbook.  Christmas never gets by my house without a little something that revolves around gingerbread men.  I love them and they take over my kitchen at Christmastime.

Thanks for dropping by!

You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I to
find this matter to be actually something which I think I would by no means
understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very wide for me.
I am taking a look forward to your next post, I'll try to get the hold of it!
