Ornament Extravanganza

Hi there, welcome to day two of my Ornament Extravaganza. Today's ornaments is a bit of a sewing project. I promise it was super easy, so even if you don't sew, you could handle this one. I began by taking two triangles of green felt and sewing them together with a bit of stuffing, a felt trunk, and ribbon. I threaded on a star bead and sewed on strands of size 6 seed beads for garland.

I will be giving away one of my tree ornaments this week, leave a comment here in the post sometime before the end of Saturday the 14th and you could win. I will be giving an ornament away for everyday of the extravaganza so stop back by and leave a comment everyday. I will announce the winners on Monday here at the blog.

Have a great day,

  4. This is kind of sweet little ornament that stays in family forever! My great grandma used to make similar ornaments with little scraps of felt with sequins and beads. Every year we would get one. Every year they adorn my tree. Love it!

  9. Jennifer, your ornaments are adorable, both the felt one and the ceramic ones! If only I had a sewing machine. But then again, it's just as well, I've already got too many half-finished projects on the go!
