WIP Wednesday, Felt Christmas Tree Ornament Tutorial, Handmade Holiday 2010

Today I have been working on another handmade Christmas ornament for our Christmas tree this year, a felt Christmas tree ornament.  It is an easy little sewing project and fun to do…  Thank you so much for all of your amazing suggestions of what to put in our Advent calendar bags, just wonderful!
Materials:
Wool felt
Scissors
Embroidery thread
Sewing needle
Colourful beads
Fleece
Ribbon

Actual template size.

I used our Christmas tree biscuit cutter and drew around it to make my template. I cut out my two little trees in felt.
Sewed them together in blanket stitch and then decorated my tree with various colourful beads, by sewing them on.
Attach a ribbon to the top of your tree and you are finished!
Enjoy:)

    Oh I’m still on the table trees…how do you get so much done so fast !!!? :0)

    but I have been making felt stars (aren’t cookie cutters great)I tried threading them in a line with a beaded thread between them …but hanging on a ribbon is a lovely idea!
    Thanks for all the inspiration (rushes off to sew furiously!!!)

    I love the tree. It reminds me of an ornament I had as a child.
