Yesterday was Craft day. Steph came over and worked on several things....and I worked on several things...and we both did some felting! The felting was fun. I have had the wool roving for a few years, but finally did something with it. I made different sized balls for a snowperson and Steph made red ones. The blue long snaky thing was supposed to be a scarf for my snowp, but....
|Stephs tree on right, simple cone, ribbon, small log.|
My tree is the left one made from pipe cleaners, instructions found on Martha Stewart...
mine came out looking nothing like the one on the MS site, of course, but I had fun making it and want to make another. I would not recommend trying this if you don't like doing fiddly things! The pipe cleaners were a bit of a pain to keep organized...as you can tell by the finished tree.
These lovies are for the grandchildren....well except for the smallest one, Steph wants it. So now I need to find another jar for the youngest....but she can't play with them anyway because the are glass, so she probably won't care.
I swooshed white paint around the inside of the jar, dabbed some on the lids, painted eyes and buttons on the outside. The carrot is felt because I didn't have orange paint. The light is one of those led tea lights.
