Christmas crafts

I have been making a few Christmas crafts using felt material and tried out pin flair for the first time. I really enjoyed doing them all.

I had lots of fun making them would love to make more.

We had lots of sea shells left over that we collected on holiday. So we painted lots of orange, black and green shells and turned it into a pumpkin by placing them onto a paper plate, it was lots of fun.

My son and I had fun stuffing an orange sock with lots of rice. Then we tied ofd the top with some elastic band. Then painted the stalk green and painted a face on there. Looks a little scary. The kids enjoy playing with it also feels bit like a stress ball. All good fun.

Halloween crafts

We did a few different crafts. Some hand printing and turning polustpolys balls into small Halloween characters to play with. We did ghost, pumpkins and witches, using kitchen roll, tissue paper, string and a little bit of paint.

This year was our first attempt at picking pumpkins and cutting them. It turned out to be lots of fun. The inside of the pumpkin was rather smelly and slimy but the kids seemed to like it.

Flower butterfly wreath

Lately I’ve been knitting lots of flowers, but didn’t know what to do with them. So I decided to make a new wreath. I made it much stronger and better than the last one I made.

I cut lots of cardboard out into a circular shape to make the wreath shape and glued them all together so that its a lot thicker and does not bend. I wrapped green wool all the way around it till you could not see any cardboard. I sewed on the knitted flowers I made, I thought it’s nice but it needs an extra touch. I am obsessed with anything butterflies, so I found a butterfly that I used to have ironed on an old pair of jeans. So I sewed the bottom of the butterfly to the wreath so now we have a butterfly in the middle gives it a nice different touch. Enjoyed making it looks lovely on my front door.

Felt butterfly craft

Felt butterfly I made. I used two blue felt material cut into two butterfly shapes. First on one side I sewed buttons and beads on to the one butterfly as you can see in the photo. Then partly sewed both felt butterflies together, put some stuffing in then sewed it up all the way around.

I think it looks very pretty and colourful 😊

Felt case craft

I made a small case using felt my iPod and phone both fit in there so it’s a good size. Using two different coloured felts, I sewed them together leaving an opening. Sewed some flowers and buttons on and stuck some Velcro on so that it closes up.
