Quick and Easy Santa Ornament


I made this Santa Ornament at a Christmas in July class at my friend, Mary's home.  It was so cute and easy to do that I just had to share it with everyone.  We talked about how this would be a cute embellishment to add to a gift. 

The belt and buttons are Basic Black card stock and the buckle is Stampin' Up!'s Silver Glimmer paper.  The ornament already had red glitter on it.

Belt is 1/2" wide and long enough to go around the ornament.
Buckle is a 1" square.  The black square in the middle of the buckle is a 1/2" square. 
Buttons are 1/4" circles.

The most difficult part about making the ornament is finding an adhesive that sticks to glitter.  I used both mini glue dots and sticky strip.  Crystal Effects should also work.

The Santa Ornament is quick and easy enough that you could use this as a crafting project with friends and family.  Or you could make them as Secret Santa gifts.  You'll be able to make handmade gifts for your friends and still have plenty of time to spend with your loved ones.  Enjoy!
