When I took my tree out this year, I realized that I was no longer in love with how it looked. Does this happen to you every now and then? I think we all go through this at some point, we feel the need to change the "look" of our tree, change the decorations.
I decided I want more nature elements, like a woodland theme, and I also want to add some handmade felt ornaments. Making them is SO much cheaper than buying enough to cover the whole tree, AND much more rewarding!
I decided to make a felt bird, and kept it very simple and elegant looking. I am quite pleased with how it looks... now if only I can find time to make more and actually fill the tree, lol.
And since I had been finishing my friend's mitten garland, my son had been begging me to cut some extra mittens so he could make an ornament for the tree.
I keep thinking my kids are too small to sew, yet, time after time, they prove me wrong. I think he did such a good job!
I will try to put a tutorial together for you this week and show you different ways you can do the bird ornament. Now, I better go get busy! I still have lots of elving to do!
