- Round glass or plastic ornament
- 1” fabric squares
- Mod podge
- Foam brush
- Glue gun
- Decorative embellishment if desired
1: Apply the mod podge in small sections on the Christmas ornament. Then attach the first fabric squares. Be sure to smooth them down and push out any air pockets.
2: Repeat process until the ornament is covered and then allow to dry completely.
3: Apply a second coat of Mod Podge and allow your mod podge Christmas ornament to dry overnight.
4: Once dry, apply decorative embellishments with a glue gun. Reattach the top of your ornament, and you’re good to go.
Fabric Wreath Christmas Ornaments
1/8 yard of cotton fabric
2 – 4 Mason jar rings
Scissors or rotary cutter
Glue Gun or Floral pins (You can find them on Amazon)
Ribbon or twine
Decorative embellishments (optional)
Each 1/8 yard of fabric will cover two rings
1: Cut your fabric into 1” wide x 7” long strips. However, don’t panic if they are not exact, it’s not a big deal. We used a variety of color combinations and patterns for each wreath, but you can also make the strips all the same.
2: Next, wrap the fabric strip from the inside and tie in a knot. Ensure the knot is sitting on the outside edge of the ring.
3: Continue to tie strips until the ring is full. To make your wreath ornament look “full” you may want to scrunch the strips up a little and pack as many as you can onto the ring.
4: Cut a length of ribbon or twine to serve as your hanger. Then tie it around the ring, at the top. If you like, glue a decorative embellishment.
DIY Dollar Store Fabric Decoupage Plates
1 fat quarter of fabric
1 plate – A clear plate or a single colour plate works best.
1 pair of kitchen scissors or wire cutter
1: Using the foam brush, spread the mod podge onto the back of your plate.
2: Smooth fabric over the plate. If you are using a patterned fabric, ensure the side you want to see is pressed against the plate. Press the fabric down, gently, but firmly, to make sure there are no bubbles. Turn over the plate and you can see if there are any spots you missed with the mod podge. Allow the fabric to dry completely.
3: Trim the fabric around the outside of the plate. Apply another coat of mod podge and allow to dry 24 hours and voila, you have a personalized Christmas plate.
These plates can be washed. However, we recommended not putting them in the dishwasher and washing them by hand instead.
