Happy Hostess Ornaments – Domestic Bliss Week

4 Dec

DIY felt apron ornament tutorial

There’s just something about an apron that screams I can cook AND I have fabulous clothes worth protecting. And in reality I find it really dresses up the sweat pants and giant cookie monster shirt I do most of my morning culinary magic in.

These sassy little felt hostess aprons also dress up a bottle of  bubbly for the perfect hostess gift.

Bubble Bath or Champagne your call- I recommend both!
