Bee happy .... make Christmas decorations

I have been making some Christmas decorations over the last couple of days with some wooden hearts, stars, rusty bells and wooden bobbins.
For the wooden shapes I used Mod Podge and my French newspapers and stuck over both sides of the shapes.

One when side was dry I did the other side.
For the shapes with no holes in I used some ribbon and glued that down first under the newspaper for hanging with.

When each side was completely dry and hard I used my knife to cut off the excess paper.

When both sides were completed I then put glue all around the edges and rolled in red glitter.

My little Christmas tree is now decorated.

I used lace, ribbon and rusty bells for the large hearts.

For the wooden bobbins I wrapped a small amount of ribbon around and then for the hanger threaded some through the hole and knotted at the bottom to keep the ribbon holder in place.

My first felted pudding.

I used my Jane Means ribbon stash.

My little snowman and Christmas pudding were my first attempt at felting, I think they turned out quite well :)
What have you been making for Christmas?

  2. You've been really busy - I really love the hearts, you've inspired me to go and make some.

  3. I love these, your felting is brilliant and I love the modpodged shapes. I have a load of musical scores which would work well for this.
