The big winter holidays have now ended. All that is left are soon to be faded memories and maybe some handmade ornaments that you can save and add to your tree next year! This is my batch of ornaments that I am going to store for the following 11 months. They were a blast to make and really easy. Hopefully, some other people out there also made some handmade goodies that will be cherished year after year. Happy New Year.
Each one of this felted ornaments were previously posted about with full vivid color. Feel free to check them out in their original form. And don’t forget that just about any small cute felted toy can easily be transformed into an ornament with a string, some ribbon, yarn, or a metal hook. Once again, Happy New Year. I will be back shortly with a felted toy bird that is already in progress. Until next time . . .
My recent addition to my growing collection of Christmas ornaments is this miniature felted snowman. Okay, I admit that those earmuffs look more like bear ears and it doesn’t help much that his nose is a round blue circle instead of an elegant long sweet, crunchy carrot. However, he is still a cutie and proudly displayed on my home tree next to salt dough snowman ornaments created by my children. I so badly wanted to give him that typical carrot nose. But, alas I was out of wool and limited to my current color selection and it did not include orange. What was I to do, give him a long pink nose?
This all brings me to my next tidbit of information, my holiday gift. I just received 4 pounds of nice wool batting that I can dye a myriad of colors! I can have orange, black, blue, red, purple, any color I can imagine. The company I order my wool from is clearly visible in the photo below. It is very reasonably priced; so, if you live in the states, phone in your next order using the number below.
I’m so excited to have a complete color palette of wool to choose from for my next few projects. I’ll just have to make the time to actually dye it; it won’t do me any good just sitting there in that cardboard box all fluffy and white!
