Something rather unfortunate happened when we moved house – all our Christmas tree ornaments broke. On one hand i was sad – but on the other hand, they weren’t that expensive, and if they broke that easily I’m not sure i want them around my kids.
So I decided to make some softer and less breakable ornaments. I think they turned out really cute! I love that they are made out of felt – because every time the kids rip them off the tree and start playing with them, I don’t freak out hehehe.
I used this tutorial – but I made a few changes. They are made using felt circles, and she recommends making them with circles no less than 4″ wide. To be honest, i found this way way too big. So i made mine 2.5″ wide, and i really really love them. I made half plain, but then for the rest i sewed little pearl beads at the joins (leftover beads from this collar). I really love them!
There are a lot more I wish I’d had time to make – but you do what you can i guess :) Maybe next year I’ll be able to tackle some of these really gorgeous handmade ornaments!
