These ornaments are made with the same technique that I used for the Felt Scrap Bowl Tutorial . This was much quicker though because these are only about 3″ x 6″. I had the scraps left over from a prior project and I didn’t change the shape of the scraps at all. I just placed them so they looked like branches. I did cut the trunk pieces out of left over brown felt.
I then sandwiched the scraps in two pieces of water-soluble stabilizer and free motion stitched with dark green thread.
Here’s one of the trees after the stabilizer was dissolved.
I was just going to glue the sequins on the trees as it would be faster. I tried one but the sequins were already falling off and I really didn’t like how it looked.
So I ended up sewing on the sequins with a bead to hold it in place.
I finished two trees. I did add a loop of ribbon to the top so they can be hung. It was fairly quick for one of my “last-minute Christmas projects”. I always vow I won’t make anything this Christmas but I never seem to keep that promise.
Happy Holidays to everyone and thanks for stopping by!
