Make Cheap DIY Christmas Ornaments

I know, I know – it’s almost the big day. But I haven’t stopped my handmade ornament obsession this year, and you can still make these cheap DIY Christmas ornaments for last minute gifts (if you are the ornament giving kind).

I spotted these at Sew to Speak, and they are the perfect way to use up some of those fabric scraps that I know you have. The packages of clear ball ornaments aren’t that expensive, so with a bit of Mod Podge in the mix you can have these ornaments for a few cents.

As you can see, the process is very simple. You’ll cut your fabric scraps into squares first. Then you’re just going to take clear ornament balls and Mod Podge the scraps right to the balls in a random fashion! It’s that easy, and the results look great.
