For those of you who like to get a jump on the holidays but consider yourselves craft challenged, here’s an ornament anyone can make.

Crafty Hoop Ornament

3” wooden embroidery hoop, 5” x 5” scrap of Christmas print fabric, 12” length 1” wide gathered lace, 7” length 1/4” wide ribbon, tacky glue, scissors

1. Place fabric in hoop. Trim excess fabric even with back of hoop.

2. Glue gathered lace around back edge of hoop.

3. Fold ribbon in half and glue cut ends to top back of hoop for hanging loop.

Could it get any easier?
