Chevron Ornament Christmas Decor

I was inspired by a recent pin I saw to create my own oversized ornaments for Christmas.  These are simple to make and honestly do not take that long at all.  I purchased foam board and used leftover foam board from birthday backdrops I had in the basement. I purchased chevron burlap, tiny greenery, wooden ornaments, and ribbon all from Michaels.

I first cut out the shapes out of the foam board. They do not have to be perfect because they will be covered. Then I used hot glue to attach the burlap.  Once it was all attached I made a simple bow and wrapped the end of the greenery around it.  Then I added various other items to make them look even better.

I like that they are light weight and do not take up a lot of room when storing away. My coworker suggested using then as a pin board. I love that idea. You could use pins to attach Christmas cards even. I loved these so much I ended up making some in the shape of presents. It was way past my bedtime and I did not want to use an exacto knife, and so I settled for simpler cuts and do rectangles instead. 

Thanks so much for checking out my project today. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.
