How to make your own s’more ornament
First, cut the burlap into 3 x 3 inch squares. You don’t need a ruler here – just eyeball it so they are about the size of a graham cracker broken in half. You will need 2 burlap pieces for each ornament.
Add details to your “graham cracker” pieces. Using a brown marker, draw a line down the center of the burlap square. Then add two parallel rows of dots to both sides of the cracker.
Next, cut the brown felt. You’ll want to cut these these a little smaller so they fit inside the burlap square. You will need 3 or 4 pieces of “chocolate” for each ornament.
Start assembling your S’more ornament. Add a dot of glue to the center of the bottom piece of burlap. Be careful – the glue may ooze through the burlap fabric.
Place one brown felt square onto glue. Add another dab of glue and set the second brown felt square on top of the first.
Fluff the cotton balls. You will need 1 or 2 cotton balls for each ornament. Fluffing the cotton gives it a fuller look, like a real marshmallow.
Place the cotton balls in the center of your S’more ornament. Glue in place with a dab of glue.
Finish assembling your S’more ornament. Glue the remaining “chocolate” felt squares on top of the cotton ball. Then glue the remaining “graham cracker” top over the S’more ornament.
Make your ornament hanger. Cut a piece of twine that’s about 2.5 to 3.5 inches long. Fold the twine in half to make a loop.
Glue a hanger on your S’more ornament. Add a small dab of hot glue to the center of the top of the ornament. Hold twine in place for about 30 seconds or until it is completely hardened.
