After weeks of creating inexpensive gift items for the elementary school's holiday shop, I am finally DONE! (To view some of the things that I have recently made, click here and here). As I neared the end of my "crafting madness", I realized more things that I could make with my extra supplies. Among other things, I still had some felt, hair clips, and ribbon, so I got busy and worked a little harder. (see below) I cut felt petals and leaves, and then glued them to pins and hair clips. I found a pretty satin ribbon, rolled it up, and hot glued it to the center of the flower.
I used the same ribbon to make a loop, and then put a felt flower on top of it. Then I glued a little silver sequin from my daughter's sequin stash.
I painted gingerbread men on some little canvases about 2"x3". Then I tied red striped candy cane ribbon into a bow and stapled it to the back. These little guys can be hung on the Christmas tree, or pinned up on the wall.
