Fabulous Felt Wreath (project)

Super Super EASY! I made this wreath this morning is less than an hour!! Makes a great handmade gift and costs about $5 – no kidding!!  Use reds & greens for a Christmas theme, pink for a baby girl, blues for a boy, custom colors to match a room’s decor, etc etc…  I love this project!!

Here’s what you need;

  • 9 x 12 felt pieces (I used 20 pieces cut into thirds to make a 14 inch wreath)
  • Long needle & thread (I used a doll making needle & quilting thread)
  • Scissors
  • A piece of cardboard  (about 12 x 12 -any old box will do)
  • Hot glue

Step-by-Step: (see image for step-by-step pictures)

  1. Gather your supplies & plug in your glue gun
  2. Cut 9 x 12 felt pieces into thirds- making 3 x 12 strips
  3. Ribbon fold each strip (it will need about 4 folds)
  4. Hold your folded strip with one hand
  5. Thread the needle through the center of each folded strip
  6. Continue folding and threading strips together on a long piece of thread (like stringing popcorn)
  7. Your stack of threaded strips should be getting long now!
  8. Once all the strips are threaded bring the 2 ends together and stitch them closed. (Be sure to hide your stitches)
  9. Form your wreath in the shape you want (it will be floppy) on a piece of cardboard & trace a circle from the inside of your wreath (as a guide for cutting)
  10. Cut just OUTSIDE the circle you draw (you want your cardboard circle to be larger than the hole in your wreath so you can’t see it). Cut out the center of the circle to make a nut shape.
  11. Attach the ring to the back of your wreath with hot glue to make it sturdy.
  12. Attach a hanging loop- with hot glue to the cardboard. (I used a scrap piece of felt) HANG IT!!

Love it! This one is going in the nursery. But I see more in my future 😉

Book Page Christmas Tree (project)

A couple weeks ago a few friends and I made some Christmas wreaths out of old book pages. They turned out so FABULOUS that it got me thinking … what else could I make out of old book pages?? The next project was a book page Christmas Tree – and it is equally FABULOUS!! Here’s what you need;

  • Paper mache cone (or a foam cone if you want to attached the pages with hot glue)
  • Staples and Stapler
  • Old book (I used a medium size book)
  • Scissors
  • Glue or hot glue

Roll the book pages into little cone shapes and starting at the bottom of your paper mache cone – staple the pages near the point. You will need to semi-layer as you go around the cone to make sure you have good coverage. Add rows up the paper mache cone until you reach the top. At or near the top you will need to cut your page cones a little shorter. The top is one small cone fit over the point of the paper mache cone. (You may need a dab of glue or hot glue here)
