Finished Friday: RED HEART JOLLY PICKLE ORNAMENT

This year I wanted to start a new tradition in making each of my kids a Christmas tree ornament. This year I decided to go with something silly and fun. I chose to make the Red Heart Jolly Pickle Ornament which can be found on the Yarnspiration website.

I used various scrap yarns in my stash ( mainly all Red Heart yarn). The eyes I used can be found on Amazon. If you are interested in making some of your own! For the pickle on the far right, I used these eyes & for the others, I used these. Any stuffing will do for the inside.

Do you make your own ornaments too?

I’m mainly leaving these for the birds and bees to enjoy this year but they are also a joy to cut and save seeds from for future planting or snacking. Enjoy the photos I’ve shared below.
