So… long time no blog!
I still haven’t found a desk good enough to be my sewing table (maybe I’m just a bit too picky, dunno), which means I’ve been in sewing celibacy for almost two months now, and It’s driving me mad!
I thought I’d share some of my no-sewing-required Christmas crafts nevertheless.
Here’s some pretty neat Christmas tree decorations:
I stumbled on the instructions on this video, and they looked pretty easy to make so I decided try them out.
Cut eight circles out of felt or something similar (I used the wool left over from this project), and fold them into half-circles, using just a tiny bit of hot-glue to hold the sides together.
Next, glue four half circles together, until you have two constructions like the one above.
Then glue those two together to make a sort of pseudo-ball-thing. I also glued a loop in between the two halves at this point.
Next, start gluing the half-circles together like so:
Do this until you’ve gone around the whole ball, and you’re done! I used scissors to cut off any excess glue, as a final touch-up.
The only really hard thing in the construction of these decorations is getting them symmetrical, which means they should look something like this from above:
i.e. the holes should be about the same size. Just try to be precise and don’t use too much glue!
I also made a wreath for our front door:
Just a ready-made base with some ribbon, skeleton-leaves and beads glued on it. Easy peasy!
Merry Christmas everyone!
