I’m excited to share a few DIYs for Kid-Friendly Christmas Ornaments over the next day or two. The ornaments themselves are super kid-friendly (not breakable), and some of the DIYs are also kid-friendly. First up, these adorable Homemade Yarn Letters. The girls wanted to make little gifts for their cousins, so we got out a bunch of craft supplies. After playing around with a few ideas, we settled on these! The process couldn’t be simpler, and the result is really cute. These ornaments would also make adorable stocking stuffers and gift toppers.
Here’s how to make your own yarn letter ornaments:
1. Draw letter shapes onto cardboard, then cut out. To make all the letters roughly the same size, I used a ruler to make a line 4 1/2″ up from the bottom of the cardboard, and drew the letters in that 4 1/2″ section.
2. Begin to wrap letter in yarn. TO start, you can either use the hot glue gun to hold the end of the yarn in place, or you can wrap yarn tightly around the end to keep it in place.
3. Carefully make sure cardboard corners are covered, using hot glue gun to hold yarn in place if necessary.
4. For letters that need the center cut out (like B or P or R or D), I used the yarn needle to help wrap the yarn around and through the hole.
5. When cardboard is completely covered and letter is nice and chunky, tie yarn end to back of ornament.
6. Using the yarn needle, thread a 5″ piece of yarn at the top of the back and tie ends together for hanging on tree or attaching to packages.
Et voila! You’re done! Enjoy this simple handmade ornament DIY!
