A Special Christmas Soiree...{1st Feature *Ornament*}

Hello artsy friends stopping in today. I am very excited to officially jump
into Christmas crafts starting TODAY!! I'm sure you've seen my posts pointing
to "A Special Christmas Soiree" with my very lovely friend Jenn from Vintage
Gwen. I am pleased to hop into our soiree with our first features of "Ornaments
or Advent Calendar's for Christmas!~" I choose to create an Ornament
These ornaments tie into my "Three Weeks Of Thanks Project" ~ Thankful 
for Family & Friends. I created these ornaments for my lovely family : )) .
Upcycled TP Roll 
           ......{Burlap Ornaments}
I thought I'd add a snow effect to my photo.. lol.

These ornaments are very festive, pretty and feature hidden little treats for the lovely family
member's I created them for. Within the ornaments are candy, and a little lovely note I 
placed to add a special moment to Christmas morning. I am so thrilled to share my tutorial
with you today. Hope you get to create and share some lovely ornaments this Christmas.
**Magical Items Needed** 
TP Rolls (as many as you need per amount of people you are crafting for)
Burlap
Red Raffia
Candy
Snowflake Stickers 
Glue Gun
Gold Rope (Ribbon will do too)
Christmas Letter Stickers
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

** Lets Get To Work Lovely Elfs**
To begin, flatten your TP roll as flat as you can. 
Cut (allow for overlapping of burlap a little for folding), wrap and glue on your 
burlap around your TP roll. Once you are done wrapping your burlap to fit your
TP roll, tuck in the one end and glue together. Your burlap overlapping
will fold in perfectly to allow for neat fit and pointed edges. 
Once the first end is glued together (press down to make sure it's securely 
glued down), grab some candy (in my case, we have TONS of
Halloween candy still floating around) to stuff into your roll
and add a fun little note for the owner of your ornament. 
After adding in your fun little treats, glue the other end of your roll shut. 
Grab your raffia and get creative. Wrap it in an angle alongside your gold rope.
Tie at the top in a creative manner. Add your snow flake sticker and your initial.
They should both stick pretty steadily, if not, add a bit of glue to it but I doubt you
will need to. Tadaaaaa.. You should be all set and ready to create a little loop for
hanging using a bit of your raffia. You can glue a loop to the back lightly. 
ALL D O N E!! 
I absolutely enjoyed putting these together. I did them very early in the morning when 
everyone was sleeping to ensure that my surprise inside will add a special treat to our 
Christmas festivities. GREATNESS with TP ROLL! I am SO in LOVE with these 
awesome ornaments. I upcycled beautifully...What are you doing with your rolls?

PILE THEM UP AND GET CRAFTY FOR S A N T A ..
