Handmade Ornament Exchange Party

Under The Table and Dreaming is having a Handmade Ornament Exchange Party! I got so excited about it that I had to share these cute little Hat Ornaments with all my friends in Blogland.


To get started on this you need a toilet paper roll & some yarn. Measure 3/4" off on a toilet paper roll & cut the piece. Don't worry, you have to flatten it out but toilet paper rolls are hardy creatures & you can just fluff it back into shape.


Cut you yarn into 14" pieces. You will need about 40 or so depending on the thickness of your yarn. Then cut one piece that measures 20". ( that will be your hanger)

Fold your yarn in half & slip it through the toilet paper roll section pulling the open ends through the loop around the toilet paper roll cardboard.



Do this with all the yarn pieces making sure you keep them side by side & not on top of each other & all going the dame direction. Once that is done push the open ends through the toilet paper section. Tie at the ends, be careful to pull your hanger piece out of the way & trim the yarn to form the pompom.
(sorry...pics of these steps came out really wonky)
When you are done you have a Winter Hat Ornament!

Okay, thats not the best picture either. But you see what I mean. I was using baby yarn so it is not as thick as the other stuff that I have on hand but only in black & that doesn't do well in pictures.
