Why are these ornaments on a cookie sheet? I put them on these so that they will lay flat and I can easily put them up high enough so the dogs won't get to them. Yes, I am constantly trying to keep things away from our puppy, Molly. I should have straightened them out a little more for the picture, but I am not a photographer and didn't think about it.

Christmas 2012 Ornament
I should have blogged earlier this week, but I got caught up in a craft project and I just couldn’t put it down. I have been making Christmas ornaments out of grosgrain ribbon and beads. The beads are in muted tones of pinks, creams, sage greens, bronze, and silver. I have used brown, cream, pink, sage green and silver ribbons.
The cost of this project isn't too bad. The beads cost $10 and the ribbon was around $1.50 a spool. So I figure that when all is said and done I should be able to make around 30 to 40 ornaments for a total cost of $20.00.
Of course these can be made out of Christmas plaid ribbon and children’s craft beads, but I wanted to go for something a little more elegant. I found the picture of these on Pinterest. I found the best directions on how to make these at Sunshine Yellow Creative Stitching.
Now, if you decide to make this craft, don’t give up after one ornament. I was on my third ornament before I really got the hang of it. If you can sew a button, you can make this ornament.
