Happy December! It’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl here kicking off December with a quick and fun Christmas Ornament Tutorial. I love to make personalized ornaments and with Therm o Web’s HeatnBond® EZ Print Transfer paper its easy! Let’s get started, December is flying by!!
Wide mouth mason jar lids
5″ square background fabric
5″ square Therm o Web HeatnBond® Fusible Fleece
Small pieces of green fabrics and brown fabrics
spool of ribbon
Heat n Bond® EZ print Transfer Sheets
Heat n Bond® EZ Pressing paper
Tree Pattern, click HERE
Words, click HERE
Piece of Christmas card stock cut into a circle the exact size of the jar lid
Begin by cutting a 5″ square of background fabric and fusible fleece. Fuse the fleece to the wrong side of the background fabric. This gives the fabric a little stability and softness.
Print out the tree patterns and roughly cut them out and iron them to the wrong side of the tree and trunk fabrics. Cut on the pattern line, peel off backing paper.
Center the tree on the background fabric and press into place.
Top stitch around the tree and trunk three times in black thread. I like the stitching to look “sketchy” but it’s hard to not sew along the same line each time – you need to purposefully not follow the pattern.
Print out the words in REVERSE on the EZ Print Transfer Sheets for light fabric. Cut around the words and heat set in place. Let cool then peel off the paper.
Punch 2 holes in the mason jar ring – I used a crop-a-dile.
Thread the ribbon through and knot it in a loop. Cut a second piece of ribbon and tie a bow. Center the design and push through the mason jar ring. Trim off excess and hot blue into place. Hot clue excess fabric down and glue all the way around the inside as pictured below:
Place the card stock circle in the back to cover the mess!
Hot glue the bow to cover the holes. Finished! Now go make one for all your friends!!!I sewed a button to the top of this tree. You could easily sew buttons to each tree or add other embellishments. I love being able to add a word to a fabric craft! I’m off to make more – think cats, owls, gingerbread men, and birds!
