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?
