Last week, after making lovely snow globes and putting up our Christmas tree, I decided to make some cute ornaments. Only problem, I couldn’t find this little bag of felt I had. I gave up after 30 minutes. Then, on Tuesday I saw this cute DIY by Mayi Carles and almost died of cuteness. I also ran into this cute guy from Urban Owls‘s Etsy shop… it was on! After some deep searching, I found the felt I looked for all weekend. Luckily, I had the colors I wanted, fabric from my etsy necklaces, and the rest is history. If you are anything like me, you probably have all the materials at home. I even used cotton balls as my stuffing. HAHA I started playing around with colors and shapes and ended with a baby owl. I wanted more. In the end, I made one for each member of our little family. I’m in love.
All you need is felt, fabric scraps, cotton balls (which I forgot to photograph), hot glue gun (for the eyes), yarn for the string, needle and thread. Now the fun begins.
Play around with shapes and colors as you please. The choices are infinite. I can’t wait to create other animals & send some out as gifts (spoiler alert, again).
