I'm signed up for a Star Ornament swap that's due to be sent out in a couple of weeks, so I started experimenting.
#1 seemed blah to me, even with the usually popular red/white polka dot fabric.
So I tried a livelier fabric. Not crazy about #2, either. Maybe it needs a different button?
Switched gears to a non-Christmasy color combination. Used silver metallic thread and cord to dress it up a bit, but still not sure about #3. Do you like any of these? Have any suggestions? Apparently my creativity is on an end-of-summer holiday.
