If you are artsy and want to spend some time making a homemade gift, an ornament may be the perfect gift. There are plenty of websites, such as Pinterest, that have step by step instructions on how to make little ornaments. One example of an ornament is a tea light snowman ornament. This ornament is sure to light up any Christmas tree. All you need is a battery operated tea light, a black sharpie, red ribbon, red pipe cleaners, red pom poms, black felt, an orange sharpie, and a hot glue gun. Use the black sharpie to draw dots for eyes and a mouth on the tea light. Cut a piece of pipe cleaner about 2.5 inches long and glue it along the top of the tea light to make a headband. Glue two pom poms at the ends of the pipe cleaner where the ears would be. This creates ear muffs for your snowman. Cut a piece of red ribbon about 4.5 inches long and fold and glue the ribbon to make it look like a breast cancer symbol. Put a small line of glue on the back inside portion of the scarf and glue the scarf to the backside of the snowman (tea light). Color the flame/candle with the orange sharpie to make the nose orange. Use more red ribbon to make a loop to glue to the top of the tea light so the ornament can hang on a tree. This homemade ornament is an unique and inexpensive gift.
