Handmade Christmas Decorations

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Yesterday I showed you my little Christmas tree in my craft space and the decorations that I have made. They were really simple to make and today I thought I would show you how I made them.

For the felt hearts I used an cookie cutter to trace around the felt, sewed 2 hearts together using red bakers twine and then stuff them with cotton wool as I didn't have any stuffing so used what I had on hand. I used the left over twine to create a loop at the top.

The little stockings were made simply by using a template and sewing 2 stockings together with embroidery thread and then creating a loop at the top. Then I added a piece of ribbon to the top to add some colour to them.

The little starburst baubles were made using the Martha stewart starburst punch and folding the circle in half and then gluing 7 circles together and attaching some thread to hang them.

These decorations were made with items I had on hand and would be great for a small tree or you could make them on a bigger scale for a bigger tree. Also they are great for a child's tree as there isn't nothing that could break or hurt them and they can help make them too.

Have you made any Christmas decorations this year or maybe you have some decorations made in previous years you add to your tree year after year?  I would love you to let me know in the comments.

Hope you are having a good week.
