What You Need:

  • Chenille bump stems (fancy pip cleaners)
  • Scissors
  • Tape runner or glue stick
  • Glue gun
  • Mini Dollhouse bottlebrush Trees (optional)
  • Mini Dollhouse candy canes (optional)

steps

What To Do:

1. Using a tape runner with double-sided tape or a glue stick, attach a photo of your pup onto a postcard or other thick piece of paper so it’s nice and sturdy. Cut out your pup’s head.

2. Cut your chenille stem in half.

3. Take 1/2 of your chenille stem and bend it in half.

4. Take the other 1/2 of your chenille stem and wrap it around the top of the folded stem. Wrap it a few times until the arms are as long as you’d like them to be.

5. Using a glue gun, attach your pup’s head to the chenille stem body you’ve just made.

6. Use your glue gun to give your pup candy canes, trees or any other accessories you can think of!

7. Take a moment to admire your handy work and smile. Isn’t it adorable?

8. To finish it off, cut a piece of yarn or ribbon about 6 inches long and, using your glue gun, attach it to the back of your ornament so you can hang it from the tree
