Finishing Stitchy Ornaments

Happy Saturday!
 Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! This morning I decided to finish the ornaments I had stitched through this year.. Most are from Country Cottage Needleworks.. The Fa La La ornament I finished with a thrift store sweater and then made Pom poms and a bow out of grey yarn  ..
Merry Merry was finished with red gingham on the bias and white Pom Pom trim ..a green gingham bow for hanging
Little House Needleworks Sleigh Bells is finished with green and burgundy plaid homespun.. A burlap ribbon on the top for hanging.
The stockings were hung uses another thrift store sweater and plaid flannel ribbon..
I believe in Santa is from Just Cross Stitch magazine a couple years ago .. It is on a green gingham with that same plaid flannel ribbon trim at the top..
This birdhouse ornament is finished with red ticking in a tag shape with a red check vow and a brown strip ribbon for hanging..
More thrift store sweater was used on O come let us adore him .. I also made more Pom poms and a bow from yarn topped with a red button.. The flannel red plaid ribbon is used for hanging ..
And lastly these snow people on red ticking with that same red plaid flannel ribbon ..
Here they all are .. They are stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed Monaco
