The Ornament Girl is Hiring: Instructor & Content Creator

The Ornament Girl is growing, and I am so excited to be offering a new role on our team!

Do you see the world in little folded pieces of fabric?

Do you find yourself coming up with your own unique no-sew ornament ideas?

Would you love to inspire & teach tens of thousands of ornamenters across the globe?

Does the idea of ornament-ing and getting paid for it sound like your Dream Job?


If the above statements are true, you might be just the person we are looking for to join our growing team here at The Ornament Girl.


The ideal candidate for this role is someone who loves ornament-ing, is familiar with the Ornament Girl brand, and who strongly aligns with our company values. Please read on for the details.


Position title: Ornament Instructor & Content Creator

Job Overview:  I’m looking for a creative and imaginative individual who will join our team to help bring our ornament ideas to life, and help me teach them to our thousands of monthly subscribers. This position is a custom-built role for a niche business, with various tasks which will change often. You will work with me (Staci Ann) to learn the tasks, our processes, and teaching methods, and my goal is that you will become a known and loved instructor in our Ornament Girl community.

Hours: at least 25-30 hours per week, with the hope that this will become a full-time position if you're a great fit for our team.

Location:  In-person (here at our OG Headquarters in Central Florida) is ideal, but we’re completely willing to consider working with you remotely if you’re the perfect candidate.


  • In-person: Weekdays only, between the hours of 9-5.
  • Remote: Though I am flexible with days/hours, I would like to settle into a consistent rhythm and schedule.

Compensation: Hourly, and will be dependent on skill level and experience.

Benefits: I will provide you with any foam, fabrics, and embellishments needed for you to complete our specific projects.

What does our Ornament Instructor/Content Creator look like?

  • You are well-versed in no-sew ornament-making, are familiar with OG patterns and techniques, and have a background in crafting (especially relating to fabric).
  • You have photography and videography skills (and equipment, if you’ll be working remotely).
  • You are comfortable with the idea of teaching ornament-making on camera.
  • You are capable of describing and explaining your ideas with clear instruction and communication.
  • You have an artistic eye for color, pattern, and texture.
  • You are creative, driven, and humble.
  • You are a self-starter.
  • You respond well to feedback and have an ownership mentality.
  • The idea of working closely with others on creative projects sounds fun and not competitive.
  • You CARE about your work and realize that even small details are extremely important.
  • You strongly align with our company values (Non-negotiable. See below).

Who you are not:

  • Someone who only thrives in an extremely structured environment
  • Someone who always needs to be told what to do next
  • Someone who cares only about themselves and isn't aware of the team
  • Someone who hates dogs (we have adorable and very bratty dogs running around).

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Work with our design team to bring our ornament ideas and prototypes to completion: Making & testing prototypes, trying out fabrics, embellishments, etc.
  • Help to refine any processes, directions, and techniques. This includes mapping out additional processes needed, like line drawing and creating templates.
  • Photography of ornaments, products & supplies, tips & tricks, etc.
  • Pattern Instruction: Taking photos of pattern-making processes, and writing out complete, descriptive, and well-written instructions.
  • Record Club video tutorials each month, as well as other video tutorials, tips & tricks, etc.
  • Meeting with me on a weekly basis to discuss your work, projects, and progress.



Why join our team:

  • Work with some pretty cool people, in an informal (though fast-paced) environment. Half of our team works remotely, and half of our team works here in our shop (our 2000-square-foot shop is located on our own property).
  • A creative outlet, with tons of room for new ideas and innovation.
  • Dependability is absolutely necessary (our team is small, so we will depend on you), but we are also very flexible.


The Hiring Process:

Apply: Fill out the application linked below. (Serious applicants only please!)

First Round: We’ll interview over Zoom to discuss the role, your experience with ornament-making, photography, and teaching, and for me to assess your compatibility with our design team and company philosophy.

Second Round: You'll send some photos and examples of your work, and I may possibly request that you send me an example of your work through the mail.

Third Round: We'll work together on a portion of one of our OG current projects, so we can make sure it's a good fit (you will be compensated for your time).


The Ornament Girl Philosophy:

At The Ornament Girl, we want to inspire people to do amazing things. We don’t just say that; We mean it and we do it every day. And oftentimes, working at The Ornament Girl will feel much like running your own small business. There will be long days and challenges, but the reward will be contributing to something that is larger than yourself. We want you to bring the hustle, grit, and passion to everything you do here. You will be expected to take high ownership and improve yourself constantly. You will be held accountable to our Core Values and will be expected to hold your teammates accountable as well. Our values are what unify us and allow us to make the impact that we do. They are crucial to our mission of becoming a household craft name and influence crafters all over the world.

Our Values:

These are the core values that every member of the OG Team lives by, and portrays in their work here.

We always make it right - At our very core, we want to help people and we honestly care. Is a customer always right? Well, even if they aren’t, we will MAKE it right anyway. We make sure every team member and customer feels heard and important. We do the right thing every time, even if it isn’t convenient or hurts us financially.
We Genuinely Care - Helping others is the name of the OG game. We always do what we can to make sure others know how important they are to us. We listen to and serve people beyond what’s typically expected in a business-to-customer relationship.
Egos are Checked at the Door - It isn’t about us; it’s about our customers. We do everything we can to help them create amazing things. We aren’t afraid to try new things, share our opinions, or make mistakes. What we are creating, and what we are a part of, is much larger than us.
We Own It - We have an ownership mindset, we take responsibility, and we do what it takes to get the job done. We make and keep commitments. We do what we say we are going to do.
We Surprise and Delight - We look for ways to go above & beyond. We strive to give more than what is expected. We hope to bring genuine joy to others by helping them express their own unique creativity.


I'm not sure what to expect as far as the number of applications we'll receive, so please be patient with us.

We are excited to meet you.

Staci Ann

    I am so addicted to this craft. I do many other crafts such as painting/decorate wine bottles. Wreaths/flower arrangements. Sewing many diff projects. I’ve created many diff patterns for sewing. Usually I can see something come home and make it or die trying. This job sounds like something I would love to do. I’m 69yrs retired and yes we love dogs. We just adopted our Charlie..we have 2. Mini Maltese is 13yrs old. We adopted her 11yrs ago.
    Thank you for this opportunity.

    What an amazing opportunity for the right person! I wish that could be me but I am caring for my elderly mother and rarely have extra time. I love you patterns and have collected so many supplies for the right time to begin. I hope you find that special someone for the position, looking forward to seeing all the new adventures this takes you!

    Hi Staci Ann~ what an exciting opportunity on every point! Regrettably I can’t apply so I am dying a thousand deaths at having to pass this by. There are so many creative people out there that perhaps your team would entertain the idea of welcoming designs and suggestions from submissions? Attention to detail and a professional rounded business is what you have! Best of luck and wishing you much success….give the dogs a friendly pet from me????

    I’m not sure why age seems to matter. So many women say they are too old. I’m about to turn 75 myself. I feel like a 36-year-old trapped in an old but functional body. I’m thrilled to have learned how to make these wonderful ornaments and have been happy to make specialized ornaments for newborns, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and sadly for lost ones. My technical (online) skills are definitely lacking, but my kids could help me learn. If it weren’t for all my kids and grandkids living so close to me here in New Jersey, I’d move to Florida so you could teach me more skills. I’ve only been making these challenging and exciting ornaments for a little better than a year, so I have a long way to go to feel qualified to teach. But I can still learn. Thanks for being there and teaching us oldsters that we can contribute and learn new skills.
