25 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Easy Ornament Tutorial

If you checked the blog yesterday you saw this post and the ornaments I made back in 2008 using scrapbook paper. I till love them and still put them on my tree so I am going to share this super easy paper wreath ornament tutorial with you! And if this is your first time to the blog - welcome! I am on day 6 of my 25 days of christmas projects - be sure to become a follower and stop back and see what's new!

Supplies needed:
Patterned paper - two different patterns
1 1/4" Circle punch
1" circle punch
Glue stick
Baker's twine or string
Christmas Embellishment.

To start punch 11 circles out of patterned paper - 11 1" and 11 1 1/4" circles. Glue the two sizes to each other. Using a glue stick (to allow some flexibility) start gluing the circles together to form a circle. Once you are done you might need to go in with some liquid glue (I used glossy accents) to make sure everything will stay together. Cut two pieces of bakers twine. I got mine from Anthropolgie - yes Anthropolgie! Insane right? Tie a piece at the top to hang the ornament from. Tie a piece at the bottom in a bow (I have mine off to the side a bit). Adhere a christmas embellishment or flower in this case. Done! Now you are all ready to hang it on the tree!
