Make Doll-Sized Ornaments / Holiday Headquarters 2014


Make Doll-Sized OrnamentsIf there’s one thing Lauryce knows, it’s that decorating the tree easily ranks at the top of our favorite holiday traditions. Lulu and I love pulling out the ornaments each year and lighting up our living room every night! Dolls deserve to join in the fun too, which inspired us to whip up these four festive ornaments. Dig through your art supplies, find a free afternoon, and get crafting – these fit perfectly on a miniature Christmas tree! :)

Ornaments 1About as small as a button, what these ornaments lack in size, they easily make up in cuteness! They are simple to make as well with standard craft supplies. Gather circular holiday-themed stickers {we found ours in the scrapbooking section at our local craft store} and coordinating craft foam. Place a sticker on the foam, and cut it out with scissors, leaving a thin border. Shape wire into a hook, and attach to the back of the ornament with hot glue.

Ornaments 2A tree wouldn’t be complete without a handful of snowman friends! For the boy snowman, cut out a small circle and rectangle from a piece of black craft foam with scissors. Roll the rectangle into a cylinder, and attach to the circle with hot glue. Attach the hat to a white pompom with glue. Cut out a thin triangle from orange-yellow felt. Glue the nose and two small black beads as eyes on the pompom. Finish by adding embroidery thread to hang.

For the girl snowman, use scissors to cut two holly leaves from green foam. Attach the leaves and two red beads as berries to a white pompom with hot glue. Cut out a thin triangle from orange-yellow felt. Glue the nose and two small black beads as the snowman’s eyes on the pompom. Glue an embroidery thread loop to the back of the pompom.

Ornaments 1These are the easiest ornaments of the bunch! Buy ornament scrapbooking embellishments at a local craft store. Punch a hole at the top, and thread coordinating embroidery thread through the hole. Tie a knot at the top to form a loop and hang.

Ornaments 4Finally, these candy cane shape ornaments add a festive jingle to your doll’s tree. Use colorful craft wire to form an upside-down “J.” Thread three mini jingle bells on and hang.

Have you decorated your tree yet? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, did you have an absolutely amazing weekend?! :) We would love to hear.

Have a lovely night!

  1. The ornaments are really, really cute. I bet your tree looks great. We did get ours up earlier this year than last. Just have to wrap presents and do our newsletter and bake.
    Really like that sweater too.
