Dog Poop Christmas Ornament...REALLY!

OK..... I thought of this the other Day when I was out
on the front lawn doing 'Dog Poop Patrol"
with my Grandkids who are 3 and 4 yrs old. 
I gave each one a different color plastic
poop bag and we began to pick it up
putting it in the bigger trash bag.
They thought it was a fun game and
They loved it.

Hat Trim and Pompom

Trim: Thread a 12 inch piece of fuzzy white yarn on your needle. Stitch loose long stitches around the hat, you may need to pull a little to keep them even.

Pompom- Wrap yarn around one finger loosely, pull a 12 inch piece of yarn through the loop and tie. I didn't cut mine, but you can is you want too. use the 2 long ends to attach to top of hat.

Face:

Stitch 2 French knots or short stitches for the eyes With the White yarn.
Stitch a smile on with red yarn.

Then with green yarn, cut 2 12 inch length, then count down 5 rounds and tie them around the poop, so it pulls in and form a head. Tie in the front and trim.

Cut another 12 piece of green yarn and loop through the hat to form the tie.

I hope you think this is as funny as me
and my grandkids do.We just put up the
Christmas tree and it was the
first ornament on the tree!
