Center canning band over the section of the card that you want to use and trace around it with a pencil. Cut out the circle, you will need two for each ornament. You may need to trim a small amount around the entire circle for it to fit inside the band. Set aside.
Turn the canning band upside down and pipe glue around the inside edge. Place the cut out circle upside down into the canning band so that the design will show on the outside. Repeat for the second card and band.

You want enough batting to fill the empty space that will be in between the two canning bands when you put them together. But not too much that it will put pressure on the cards and force them to pop out. Twist the open end of the bag to close it, secure it with tape.
Place the bagged batting into one of the bands then glue the bands together.
Wrap twine around the middle of the ornament where the two bands come together, glue in place.
For added security, wrap the center of the band with black electrical tape.
Cut a strip of fabric wide enough to cover the tape. Brush glue onto the electrical tape and wrap the fabric around it.
Tie a piece of twine around the band to create a hanger.
Expert Tips & FAQs
I don’t recommend hot glue for this project. It may hold, but it may not due to the surface not being porous. A glue like Beacons 3-in-1 or E-6000 is a better choice.
