Handkerchief Ornaments: Weekly Handkerchief Craft Series

Posted by

One of the fun things my little ones and I do during the holiday season is make a fun (easy!) craft together to give to family for Christmas. I love that it teaches them to think about others and giving. So when we were looking for this year's holiday craft, I stumbled upon these adorable handkerchief ornaments using vintage handkerchiefs on diyinspired.com. They are great to do with kids and no glue is required. The handkerchief ornaments will look beautiful on a decorative white tree or as a way to pretty up your holiday packaging.


Vintage Handkerchiefs

Glass Ball Ornaments (found at local craft store)

Pretty Ribbon

Tweezers (helps you push the handkerchief into the ornament)


Push the vintage handkerchief into the glass ornament. 

Use tweezers if needed.

Tie ribbon to the ornament.


These are so pretty and easy you just have to try making them for yourself. See this craft from Dinah Wulf on her website diyinspired.com

You can also check out this and other vintage handkerchief crafts on The Handkerchief Shop's Pinterest board titled Handkerchief Craft Ideas.
