Our latest Minted blog post is as simple as it gets! Learn how to make these fabric covered ornaments using fabric, Mod Podge and paper mâché tree ornaments you find at the craft store (or Etsy). These would make sweet gift toppers for holiday gifts too. Just think of the possibilities!

Head over to Minted’s blog, Julep for the full DIY fabric covered tree ornament tutorial.

These ornaments would be wonderful to make with the kids as well. If making with little ones, you can pre cut the fabric to fit the trees and have the kids use paint brushes to spread on Mod Podge. Any grandparent would love to receive a kid-made ornament this year! 

We used fabric from minted’s collection. But using fabric scraps is perfect as well. We have even used old tea towels and thrifted fabrics.

How thoughtful would it be to use an old dish towel or bandana from family and gift it to your mom or grandma?! Now that is taking handmade to the next level!
