>Looking for ideas for handmade Christmas ornaments?

>You’re in the right place!

>Welcome to the 2017 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 47 amazing bloggers participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple: be partnered with a fellow blogger, create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial, and ship the ornament off to a new home!

I was paired up with Emily from Two Purple Couches. She has a traditional tree full of woodland neutrals and deep reds, so I made a simple wreath adorned with a little snowbird for her to add to her collection. Read on for the full tutorial to make one of your own!
