Directions for Christmas Ornament
Making this teddy bear Christmas ornament is easy. First:
Step one: outline several teddy bear shapes on the felt. Then cut out with scissors.
Step two: use the glue gun to glue on the head and belly of the bear. Use white pom poms for this step.
Step three: Glue on arms and legs. Use black pom poms for the arms and legs
Step four: glue on the googly eyes, and the nose. Use the extra small pom pom for the nose.
Step five: Glue on the two red bells to the second white pom pom.
Step six: Add the ornament string for the back of the teddy bear.
Step 7: Hang the very cute frugal home ornament on the tree.
My final note on this is too lay the ornaments out to dry well for at least 24 hours. That way no eyes or anything will fall off.

Frugal Home Ornaments
Becoming too caught up in the spending for Christmas can be stopped if we save money on small projects. Instead of thinking : “I need to buy some new ornaments” maybe we should think “how can I decorate for under $10.00”.
Frugal home living is all about the family’s perception of saving. Another reason that we do the fun teddy bear ornaments is to create memories. These little ornaments are so easy to make. My kids’ look forward to our craft day each year at Christmas time.
