It’s time for Christmas to begin at Across the Boulevard! We’ll be sharing lots of Christmas ideas over the next six weeks. Can you believe that it’s only six weeks until Christmas? While we haven’t started our holiday decorating yet, we’ve been busy making some new ornaments and other decor pieces. Today, we’re sharing a Yarn Lollipop Christmas Ornament. It’s easy to make and doesn’t take long at all.
Lion brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Stripes Yarn
Laminated Burlap Circle
Cut a stiff piece of cardboard into a circle 3.5 inches in diameter.
Cut a piece of laminated burlap into a 3.5 inch circle. You could use any fabric for this. I like using laminated burlap because it doesn’t fray and it’s stiff. Glue the cardboard circle to the burlap circle.
Find the center of the circle and add a dot of hot glue. Place the yarn onto the glue and hold it for about thirty seconds until it’s secure.
Wrap the yarn into a spiral around the circles, adding small dots of hot glue as you go. This will keep the yarn in place. Make sure not to add more than just a dot of glue. You don’t want the glue to be seen between the rows.
Once you reach the end of the circle, cut the yarn and glue it place. Use tweezers to remove any strands of glue that are showing.
Glue the lollipop stick to the back of the burlap as shown below. Make sure to hold it in place until it’s secure.
Cut a piece of ribbon to match the yarn. Glue it over the stick as shown and then loop it back down and glue it in place. If you don’t like the look of the back of the ornament, you could repeat the process with the yarn on the back. I did this that for one that I made, but I thought it looked a little too bulky.
Once the loop for hanging is added, turn the ornament over to add a bow to the front.
Cut a solid piece of yarn and tie it off into a bow. Hot glue the bow to the stick. I tried tying the bow around the stick, but it didn’t lay flat like I wanted it to.
It takes under ten minutes to make this fun Yarn Lollipop Christmas Ornament.
I made a few of them in different sizes. They can be a big or as small as you want depending on the size of the card board and burlap circles.
I’m also making some of these without the hanging loop and I’m going to add them to a wreath that I’m working on. They could be used a plant or flower picks, too.
