Ornaments with Felt, Sequins & Beads

by Julie Hirt

I’ve been all over the place regarding crafts this weekend.  I’ve worked on making a dog bed, ornaments, crochet rug, and on my Countdown to Christmas calendar.

Thanks to this awesome aqua deer ornament from Thrift Store Crafter (Sarah even has a free pattern!), I got the urge to create some ornaments.

I pulled out my felt, sequins, beads and threads and starting browsing the Googles machine for ideas.  So far I’ve made:

felt bird

This little bird was my first attempt. I totally stole the idea from somewhere online, but I can’t find the source now.

felt owl

This little owl idea is stolen from a brooch I saw :)

dala horse ornament

Dala horse –  it’s my favorite.  I actually came up with this one on my own.

Now that I have all my supplies out I’m going to try and create some vintage looking ornaments.  I’ll definitely be making Sarah’s deer pattern as well.

Hope you’re having a great weekend.
