Rustic Mini Bag Plaid Christmas Tree Ornaments

5 Materials
30 Minutes

Sometimes dollar store products just need a little something to become boutique or craft sale caliber decorations. I call these crafts semi-homemade.

 I picked up these three little buffalo check cloth mini bags at Dollar General for $1. Time to create some semi-homemade Christmas tree ornaments!

 Next I pulled out a Hobby Lobby snowflake stencil. I purchased this one in a prior year, but it's still available online and maybe in stores too.

I then pounced on three different snowflake stencils on the three bags using Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain. It's a good idea to place a small piece of cardboard inside the bags before stenciling to avoid paint bleed through to the back layer.

I found these 6" cinnamon sticks at a local grocery store for $1.67 on sale. They will work perfectly with my project!

I untied the knot in one of the sides of the bag, threaded a jingle bell on one jute string, and tied the bag shut in the front.

I cut a loop of jute and hot glued it on the back of the bag like so.

I ended up untying the bags and sticking a Kleenex in the bottom of each bag. I tore them in two and stuffed half in each corner of the bags.
