Last month I got invited to participate in the 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments Blog Hop. I had never been in the blog hop before, so I was super excited to be apart of it this year. To give you a bit of background on the hop, the 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments Blog Hop is a blog hop that features one ornament each day during the month of October. Well, so far there have been 29 amazing ornaments and today I'm sharing my own ornament.
If you're reading the title of this blog post and thinking, what on earth did she make? I promise, I can explain. For starters, last year I made these plastic animal ornaments for Blitsy and you guys seemed to really like them. Due to that, I decided to expand the plastic animal ornament love and create more of the same this year.
For today's DIY, I created a set of Christmas ornaments inspired by the game Hungry Hungry Hippos! The reason why my brain went to this crazy idea is because I thought it combine the hippo part of Christmas (you know the song, ''I want a hippopotamus for Christmas'') with a bit of pop culture. I also thought that a set of hungry hungry hippo ornaments would be a great gift for 3 of your closest best friends.
So if you want to learn how to make your own Hungry Hungry Hippo ornaments (with sweaters), then keep reading below!

When you've tied off your string, you're ready to add your new ornament to the tree!
I loved how these ornaments turned out!
As I said before, these ornaments would make a great group gift, if you had a couple of close best friends. This DIY would also make a great holiday project to either do with the kids (that is supervised) or with a group of your friends!
