Ornament Along: Supply List!


Happy Holidays!

It's time to get out the tree, or chop one down, and start planning the ornaments with which we will completely cover every last inch of it. I am so pumped!

Mister Domestic and I will alternate weeks posting tutorials, starting with me on October 2. There will be prizes each week! Make sure to use the hashtag #ornamentalong on your Ornament Along posts on Instagram to be eligible for that week's prize.

If I could eat it, I would.

Supplies you'll need:

Make sure to also visit Mathew's blog for the list of supplies needed to complete his ornaments! Find his list here.

Fabric - You should be able to make my six ornaments from no more than six fat quarters. I am choosing my fabrics from a fat quarter bundle of Shimmer On by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman, as well as her Essex, Manchester, and Yarn Dyes coordinates (see yumminess above).

Mod Podge

Exacto Knife

Polystyrene Balls - I got 2" ones, but you can get anywhere from 2-4" ones and they'll be great

Ribbon - 1/8 wide for hanging, and various widths for optional embellishments. I got this in silver

Pellon 72F Interfacing, 2 sided fusible - you'll need less than 1/2 yard for my project. The linked source is selling in 1 yard increments, but I wanted to show you the product

Spray Starch - I normally use Best Press for all things sewing and weaving related, but for this I got Faultless because it's heavier

Mini embroidery hoops - You can use any size you think will look cute on the tree, but I picked out these - they're 3"

Optional Supplies:

Beads for embellishing

Glitter Paint. Well, any paint would work, in case you want to paint your embroidery hoops. It's the holidays, though, so go with glitter! My girls and I love this specific glitter paint we got from their Nana

Okay, are you ready to do this thing? Me too!

Check back here on Monday, October 2 for the first ornament tutorial. We'll be using fabric, thread, and ribbon - so you've got some extra time to gather your other supplies!

See you in a week!
