How to Make

Step One: Print template onto iron-on transfer paper. Then, on a safe surface, iron each template to it’s designated color.

Step Two:  After the felt has cooled, cut each shape with sharp scissors.

Step Three: Use glitter glue to spice up the numbers with glitter dots around the ornaments. Let dry.

Step Four: Assemble character pieces by layering each of the pieces as shown below. Use a hot glue gun to adhere parts together, gluing only the perimeter of the felt.

Step Five: Attach Shimmer and Shine to white felt, then trim around them.

Step Six: Add sticker pearls for zahr-mazing embellishments on the headpieces.

Step Seven: Next, hot glue the genie bottle top to the bottle. Then, hot glue the genie bottle to the blue felt, but make sure not to seal the opening at the top.

Step Eight: Hot glue command hooks to the back of the calendar and genie bottle for hanging.

Step Nine: Lastly, adhere each of the numbered ornaments to a snap clip with hot glue and store the ornaments in the genie bottle.

Happy counting!
