This is 3 Christmas ornaments I made for a swap back in November. I never blogged about them. They can easily be made for Last Minute gifts. The first one was originally a miniature cheese grater found in the cooking section. I used super glue to keep the ribbon down and used up most of the glue. The bells came on the ribbon.

The heart is a cookie cutter and I added ribbon with pom poms on it with hot glue.

The last ornament is made of safety pins, pipe cleaners, and small glass beads. The star on top is a sticker that I added on both sides. I found this idea off of Pinterest. If you go to the link, you can tell I changed up the beads and the pipe cleaners. I made it my own way! All the supplies were bought at Wal-Mart in the cooking, sewing, and crafts sections. I don't remember how much everything cost, but I'm sure it was all under $20.

Here's a close-up of all 3.
They were all fun to make. The only one I had a problem with was the Safety pin Christmas tree ornament, but once I got it right it didn't take me long.

Next up is (Sue) and I'm sure she has something beautiful to share with us.
If you get lost along the way, here is the entire lineup:
