It's December! Can you believe it? Where has the year gone....
Here is a cute gift tag for you to try- it's covered in jingle bells, so it's extra festive :)
You will need:
- Red stiffened felt
- White stiffened felt
- Red embroidery floss
- Tiny jingle bells
- Hole punch
First, draw a Christmas tree in pencil on your white felt. You can go crazy making it detailed, or you can go old school with a triangle and a rectangle on the bottom. Cut it out, then trace the tree onto the red felt and cut it out as well,
Next, use your hole punch to put a few (3-5) holes in each tree. These will be ornaments because the other color will peak through. So, make sure you don't let your holes overlap. Also, this takes a little muscle power... crafting isn't for wimps!
Now, take your red embroidery floss and use a running back stitch to sew the two trees together. Start in between the two layers, so the knot at the end of the thread won't show. Then, work your way across the trees in a zig-zag line. The embroidery floss will look like garland going across the trees!
As you work on sewing the trees together, add in a couple of jingle bells! I used three on each side.
Once you reach the top, thread the embroidery floss through the top of the tree to make a loop. And you're done!
Totally doable :)
