Easy Sew (or No-Sew) Felt Christmas Ornaments and Garland

12 Days of Christmas Blogger Challenge - Easy to sew Ornaments and garland

 

I LOVE everything about Christmas, but my favorite part is making Christmas ornaments with my kids. I actually came up with these cute ornaments when Miss G was 2. I made a whole bunch of them for our playgroup to decorate. Now I make sure to have some around for the kids to decorate every year. I just made a bunch for Miss G’s kindergarten class to decorate.
