Pug Christmas Tree Ornament

pug ornament

For the last Christmas in July post of the year, I made a cute little Christmas ornament to match my pug, Bruno. He doesn’t look too impressed, does he?

Anyway, I thought it was cute, and I’ll hang it on my tree this year. I may even make a couple more with squeakers inside. That should impress him! Bruno loves squeakers and won’t play with a toy that doesn’t make noise.

It only takes a few yards of each color, so you probably already have them in your scrap basket.
