Handmade fabric wrapped ornaments to hang around the house and from the tree will make me (and you) very happy indeed.
You will need pliable wire, a pair of pliers, ribbon or a piece of fabric that can be ripped up and ribbon for hanging the lovelies when they are done.
I made up simple wire frames to use in a few different shapes like hearts, circles and stars. To secure the wire I made two little hooks with the pliers and after threading them together I clamped them down. I would not be too worried about what the frame looks like as we are going to cover it up.
Starting at the join in the wire, you will use your ribbon or shredded fabric to wrap the wire and cover it completely. I like that mine are a little messy, but if you want yours to be super neat go right ahead.
When you get to the end, secure the fabric with a few knots then attach more ribbon for hanging. Just like magic, with very little effort or money, your festive season can have the handmade touch.
You could easily hang trinkets in the centre of each ornament like the circle with the hanging button below.
