We’re creating a little Holiday Tree to… put on another Holiday Tree! Instead of a normal Christmas tree, I decided to give this ornament a little personality and look a bit feminine! And she isn’t just a cute ornament – with pins, you can either give her lights or even use her as a holiday pin cushion, which can be so helpful to have at your desk or other crafting area.
I’ve teamed up with JOANN to bring you an ornament collection this season! This is just one of the three – You can head HERE to find the other two as well! JOANN is a place to bring in all the magic of the holidays when it comes to crafting and using yarn is no exception.
To create this ornament, we are using Lion Brand Yarn’s Basic Stitch Yarn along with all the other materials you may need to hang it up in your tree! All the materials you will need can be found at your local JOANN stores, online and offline. Can’t wait to see how you decorate your homes using JOANN!
