I’m happy to welcome back Jenilyn of Grits & Giggles to my blog. Jenilyn and I actually met on parenting forum and bonded over our love for glue guns and glitter. She’s showing us how to make ornaments, out of jute and sticks. This project is right up my love-for-woodland-things alley. Plus, you get to use a saw. Check out Jenilyn’s blog for some serious craft-spiration, like how to make a ruffled lamp shade.
Hey Ya’ll! I’m Jenilyn and write all about my adventures in Mommyhood and crafting over at Grits & Giggles. I’m a southern girl who loves to cook, craft, and love on my Husband and 16 month old baby girl.
3-4 sticks (1/2″-1″ in diameter)
Saw or Drimmel Tool
Step 1:Begin with the Jute ornament. Take the end of your jute and tie a knot (leave it on the spool, don’t cut it!)
Step 2: Place some hot glue on the bottom center of your ornament and glue the knot down.
Step 6: To make the “Woodsy” ornament, begin by carefully cutting your sticks. Cut discs 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick using a saw or drimmel tool.
