Disclosure: This post, Easy Fabric Ornament Gift Toppers, was sponsored by Coca-Cola through their partnership with ShopStyle Collective. While I was compensated to write a post about Coca-Cola, all opinions are my own.
I’m sharing two of my favorite things today! Coca-Cola and a super easy fabric craft for the Holidays! These fabric ornaments are quick and easy to make, a perfect way to use up fabric scraps. All you need is a few minutes at the sewing machine, and you’ll have a cute fabric ornament that’s perfect on the tree or as a gift topper for your Holiday Hero.
There are so many teachers, caregivers and service providers that keep everything going (like the delivery guy that brings me packages every day, the scout troop leader or even the school secretary.) We want to show our thanks and a little appreciation to everyone, but of course, big, costly gifts for all aren’t always in the budget.
Often, the best gift isn’t something you would buy. Consider a giving a heartfelt, handwritten note or another handmade gift. A thoughtful and from the heart gift or gesture, might be just the thing to boost your service provider’s spirits this holiday season!
This year we put together simple gifts using the special holiday packaging of the Coca-Cola Life bottles and handmade fabric ornaments. Nothing says refreshing like the delicious taste of an ice-cold Coca-Cola! Include the gift of Coca-Cola to help encourage togetherness and make holiday moments special. (Plus the special holiday packaging is perfect for gift giving!)
Are you ready to make these quick fabric ornaments for your tree or to top your holiday gifts?
Easy Fabric Ornament Gift Topper Tutorial
- 6 to 7 different holiday fabrics
- Batting, flannel or fleece (this is for the inner layer, I just used a scrap of white fabric)
- Scissors (a rotary cutter is great too)
- Disappearing ink fabric marker
- Ornament Template (download here)
- optional: Fray Check
- Thread, iron and other basic sewing supplies
1. Cut several strips of fabric into strips. Vary the width anywhere from 1 to 2 inches wide.
2. Sew all strips together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Press seams flat. Cut fabric strips down the middle so you have two pieces. (The ornaments need fabric for the front and back, so depending how many you are making, you might need to double the amount of strips.)
3. Cut out template. (Template download link in materials list.)
4. Line fabric up in this order, you’ll have three layers: fabric strips right side down, batting, fabric strips right side up.
5. Trace around template with a disappearing ink fabric marker.
6. Cut a piece of string and slip in between fabric layers. Pin fabrics together and cut around the traced outline.
7. Optiona: If you do not want your ornaments to fray, you can seal the edges with a bit of fray check.
You are done! How cute is that?
What’s your favorite way to show your thanks to holiday heroes?
