Last December, I bought my first artificial Christmas tree at the "day after Christmas" sale. It was such a bargain! I knew that one of my goals in 2010 was to set up my craft room in the spare bedroom and once that was completed, I knew that I would be spending most of my time in there. I was right...I rarely leave my craft room because it is my happy place and this time of year, I knew that I was going to want my own Christmas tree to enjoy as I crafted.
Kmart had a huge sale of all Martha Stewart craft-themed Christmas decor and I cleaned them out! Everything on this tree will either be craft themed...or handmade and I am so excited to share the process of decorating with y'all!
This weekend, I put up the tree in my craft room...it was much more work than a real tree but it was worth it...I love the tree! As soon as it was up, I wanted to work on a few ornaments that I had been thinking about for a while and decided to get straight to work!
I had some leftover empty glass ornaments, artificial snow and embellishments from last year. I cut a few pieces out from various pieces of leftover felt and plugged in my glue gun.
I filled the glass with artificial snow and put the cap back on.
I made a set of ear muffs with some pom poms and pipe cleaners...adorable! I used the black felt as the eyes and mouth and the orange for the nose.
Put it all together and you have an adorable snowman ornament! I thought the snowman lacked a little something so of course, I had to take it a step further....because that's what I do.
And I made a little scarf out of some scrap felt and the snowman was complete! I love him!
In a previous post, I mentioned my love affair with the book Falalala Felt and it has not disappointed me in the least! One of my favorite tutorials in the book was this adorable owl! I was able to whip him up in no time and I think I going to make a few more!
I dig his eyelids...they make him look a little sleepy...cuteness!
