I love to make crafts, but crafting is not my strong suit. I have three requirements when it comes to crafting: 1) it has to be simple, 2) it has to be quick and 3) it has to be affordable.
For this week’s edition of the Best Of Worthing Court, I’m going to show you how you can make these super cute and super easy little stamped Easter ornaments. This craft fills all three of my crafting requirements perfectly, plus, they were fun to make!
While trying to come up with something quick and easy for Easter, I was looking for something a little different than the pastels and bright colors that you usually see. Not that I don’t love those – I do! But, put together a dropcloth and some stamps and you have these adorable Easter ornaments.
Displayed in a bowl or from a “tree”, I think these are super cute! They aren’t meant to be perfect and that’s one of the things that I love about them.
Let me show you how I made them so that you can make some too.

Canvas Dropcloth – you’ll have plenty left over for other projects!
Pillow Stuffing or Cotton Balls
Step 1) The first thing to do is to stamp the images onto the dropcloth. I made my ornaments double-sided, so I stamped two images for each ornament. They don’t have to be perfectly spaced – just far enough apart so that there is some room around the image for when you cut them out.
Step 2) Cut the dropcloth into rough squares around the images.
Step 3) Place the cut squares wrong sides together, lining the images up as closely as you can. Sew around the image using a long stitch. Make sure to leave an opening to put the stuffing into. You’ll have to ignore that black ink on my fingers!
Step 4) Using your fingers, fill the sewn area with stuffing.
Step 5) Roughly cut the excess dropcloth around the image. Remember, these aren’t supposed to be perfect.
Step 6) Cut a piece of twine about 6″ long, fold it in half and insert the ends into the inside of the stuffed ornament. Sew the top closed, securing the twine. Snip all of the thread ends to clean them up. But remember, a little unraveling around the edges is a good thing!
Enjoy your cute little creations!
