Retired - Russian Nesting Doll Ornament Set

PROJECT C646
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
These cheerful little matryoshka Russian nesting doll ornaments will look cute as can be decorating your tree this year. This kit makes six little darlings, keep one for yourself and give the other five as gifts. NOTE: The purple doll pendant used in this set has been discontinued and has been replaced by a tan pendant. The overall look of the set will not change much, but this pendant will be a different color than pictured.
Instructions
Designer Tip: Tying all the ribbons is a lot easier if you can tie them around a cylindric object such as a spice jar or medicine bottle. I used a 1.5" diameter wood dowel.
  1. Begin measuring and cutting 6 lengths of ivory grosgrain ribbon, 13" long each. Tip: Make sure one of the ends is cut at a diagonal so you have a nice fine point on your ribbon end.
  2. Thread one of your ribbons through the top loop on one of your painted wooden nesting dolls. Pull the ribbon through so that an even amount is on each side. Tie a bow with the ribbon making sure to leave a loop large enough to hang on a tree branch. Snip off any uneven or rough ends of ribbon. Repeat this step with your other 5 dolls.
  3. Happy Holidays!
