Select four different prints to use on each of your ornaments. Once these are chosen, print and cut out the DCWV® Diamond Ornament pattern below. Trace this three times onto the back of each of your prints. Cut these out.
Cut a 13" piece of the green ribbon. Leaving approximately 1" at the bottom, begin attaching the diamonds together. This is best done by adhering two of the edges of one diamond print out with two of the edges of another diamond. Once these edges are secure, place the ribbon in the center and adhere the remaining diamonds to the first set. Adhere the next set of four diamonds in the same manner, directly above first set. Repeat a third time to complete the set. Tie a loop with the remaining ribbon.
Using the image as a reference, adhere small sections of your feather boa between each of your diamonds, securing in place with hot glue. Be sure to add a section just below your loop (above the top diamond) and at the end of the chain.
