Christmas Ornament Swag
Tear Drop swag using handcrafted Christmas ornaments. I have to tell you when I decided to go with the colors of Black, White and Red in my Christmas decor, I didn’t realize there was a lot to choose from. Oh there are plain white, black and red, but as far as decorative Christmas ornaments with the colors of black and white it was pretty slim pickings which brought me to create my own. Today I would love to share a few ways I created my own black and white ornaments and created a Christmas Ornament Swag to go under my farmhouse ceiling fan.
Here are three I created using paint, sashay yarn and a sock. Today I will be sharing with you all how I did the sashay ornament. The other two are pretty simple, the polkadot was done with black chalkboard paint using a sponge dauber
and the other was done by inserting an ornament inside a white and black polka dot child’s sock.
How to make a sashay yarn ornament
Cutting your yarn to size to fit your ornament.
Take two pieces (now this depends on the size of your ornament on how many pieces you will cut) of the Sashay yarn and start from the bottom and go up to the top adding about 1/2 inch more in length and tie the two pieces together
Remove the hanger from your ornament, stuff the knotted part down into the ornament, place upside down into a cup or something to hold your ornament in place. I used a small white pitcher to hold my ornament.
Separate your pieces and start bringing one piece at a time to the bottom of your ornament and glue into place. I used hot glue.
I never realized after spreading out the yarn how beautiful it is taking on the look of a crocheted piece.
I always find it funny when looking for one thing I run into something else and have that ‘aha’ moment…Does that ever happen to you? Well that is exactly what happened here. I ran across some sashay yarn…no I don’t knit or crochet, but do use it on other things, seeing it was the colors I am using I pulled it out and decided to cover a few white Christmas ornaments… here is how that was done.
trim pieces and glue into place
After all the ornaments are complete, string your ornaments with white ribbon, adjust the lengths creating a a teardrop swag, add greenery. I used faux cypress, and tied it all together with a black and white houndstooth printed ribbon all tied to the chain on the farmhouse ceiling fan.
Those of you that follow…did you notice the farmhouse ceiling fan has been painted white? If you missed the post on how I turned my ceiling fan into a farmhouse style you can go here to see how it looked before paint. Thank you for stopping by and letting me share with you.
