Handmade Christmas Countdown: Hand stitched ornaments
A huge part of the festive season for me is the Christmas tree. I always feel like it's a special event choosing the tree, trying to get it stand up straight and then finally getting to decorate it with all of your ornaments that you'd forgotten about since last year.
Each year I try to make a new ornament. Making your own ornaments gives your tree such a personal touch you can not get across with those cheap plastic decorations you see in the shops.
The talented Kiwidutch has created a beautiful hand sewn felt ornament that would be perfect as a last minute gift or to adorn your own tree. I love the structure to it and the beads on the edges really show it off well.
You could also make your own felt and make it multicoloured, or even put an LED light into the top. Whichever way you make it I'm sure it will look fantastic on your Christmas tree.
