Day 8!!!! I would be lying if I didn’t mention that this is one of my favorites of my 12 days of Christmas Crafting! I’m in LOVE with the way it looks hanging in my doorway!
Step One: Gather supplies: a whole lotta felt in various colors, brown felt, scissors, a sewing needle and sewing thread, and I used embroidery yarn also!
Step Two: Draw template for the bulb and cut out desired amount of bulbs [two felt cutouts for each single bulb]. Also, use the top of the bulb to cut out a brown piece for the top of the bulb!
Step Three: Take your pile of tops and bulbs and sew them together! I hand stitched these together. I’m sure you could use a sewing machine as well, but I thought this might be easier.
Step Four: After your tops are secured to your bulb, take two bulbs and sew them together with the outsides facing each other. Flip them inside out and stuff them before finishing the top stitch on the bulb!
Step Five: This part was kind of tricky, but I used a plastic knitting needle and I put some twine through the tops! AND IT IS MAGNIFICENT!! It does take much longer than you’d think, but it’s totally worth it in the end!
Ignore the mess in the top photo… but look how pretty! =) What a fun and simple Christmas craft!
