These chip clips were made with regular clothes pins.  I traced the clips onto fabric and cut them out. Then Modge Podged them onto the clips.  I did a layer of Modge Podge before putting the fabric down and after.  Then I trimmed any fabric that was overhanging with an Exacto knife.

The kids had fun making these tree ornaments from a kit.  We bought the kit at Michaels.
