We are having so much fun on our quest for a handmade Christmas. It’s totally amazing how creativity takes on a life of it’s own… we have an idea, brainstorm it and discover that, yes, we can make just about anything! Kitty, in particular, has grown in confidence… she hardly ever says ‘I cant!’ and sets about creating with such enthusiasm. I am feeling very proud of her.
Today, we made a pretty wreath ornament. We used a couple of scraps of felted wool sweater. I don’t think craft is limited to using only a felted sweater… any material will work wonderfully.
* Felted wool scraps (look here to see how to felt a wool sweater)
* pinking scissors
* wire (about 1 foot for the skeleton of the wreath)
We made a little loop at the end of the wire to be the stopper and then threaded the woolen squares onto the wire.
