Handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments

I made a few folksy Christmas ornaments to put in the Etsy shop. I love to make handmade ornaments. Since I married into my husband’s family I have made ornaments for my nieces and nephew every year. I also make one for my husband, and now for Eli as well. I won’t be able to show any of these as I create them as it would spoil any surprise.

This felt snowman has angel wings and pine twig arms.

I tea-stained and scorched the fabric of this flag made to look primitive. The faded look was achieved by using the wrong side of the fabric.

The mitten is made of a very thick piece of felted wool, blanket-stitched around the edges with cotton twine, with a hand beaded and embroidered snowflake design.

Last night we ordered our Christmas cards from Shutterfly. Now with the addition of these ornaments to the store I think for me the holiday season has begun 🙂
