Christmas in the States

Last year I didn’t have much time to make Christmas gifts (so it was store bought for everyone!), so this year I wanted to make up for it – even if they’re small. So, I decided that instead of using “traditional” gift tags, that I would attach ornaments to presents instead.

For this round, I made a lot of Kansas ornaments (and one Ohio, that’s for me!). I used a maple cork for the base of these and tied it off with a buffalo check bow for a rustic/farmhouse look. I used different threads for these to give some variety – some have variegated thread, others have light or dark colored wreaths, and some have tiny bells…. I’m not sure you could go wrong with these designs!

I still have a few more ornaments that I want to try (I may have over bought designs this year), but I think these should be a fun addition for everyone’s tree!
