Pretty House Ornaments
Two years ago in 2010 I made these cute houses ornaments. I absolutely LOVED making these little houses. I used Pellon Peltex double fusible heavyweight interfacing for the stabilizer but you could also use just plain cardboard or chipboard from the scrapbooking section of the craft store. I show how to make them HERE.
Happy Snow House Ornaments
I had so much fun making these (and I made a lot of them – I was still making them on Christmas Eve… ) Anyway, I saw some really cute houses similar to these in a magazine and they actually had an overlay of sparkling organza ironed on with a lightweight fusible interfacing.
I then made up little phrases about the “little house” and the snow and printed them on fabric for the printer. I cut out the sayings and sewed them on by machine.
Circle Lace OrnamentsI made these little circle ornaments the same year using the same method and then I sewed on ruffled lace and trims HERE.
Little Felt Book Ornaments
I saw these on the blogs a few years ago and I made these up a few days before Christmas. Polly at Little Helping Hands did a tutorial on these so if you want to make them and they are EASY you can check out her blog HERE. I used Pellon Peltex for all these ornaments except for this one. Actually, it could be used for this also but it’s not needed. I kinda like a little soft booklet.
I used Pellon Peltex for these also but you could use cardboard. I printed out pictures of angels, ironed them onto the Peltex, and then put on a hanger and some polyester stuffing to make it look like the angel is floating on a cloud. Cute, huh?
Angel ornaments with real fabric
I saw these in a magazine several years ago. I printed out angel pictures in 3 x 5 inch sizes and ironed them onto Peltex. I tried matching fabric to the colors of the angel clothes in the picture and gathered a little square of fabric and attached it to the picture by sewing it. I then embellished with pretty trims, glitter, and a hanger. I printed out “Hark, the herald angels sing” on paper, cut them out in strips, and glued those on the back. When I gave them as gifts, it was a nice surprise to look on the back, don’t you think?
Yep, same method. Once you get the fabric ironed onto the peltex you can cut out anything and you have a very firm base with which to work and add embellishment. I bought some fancy gold fabric at Joann’s and cut out a wonky star…
Next, meaning THIS year as in tomorrow, I’m going to make some different shaped ornaments. I took the idea from these pretty cardstock papers.
Aren’t these cute shapes and colors? I need to find the right, bright fabrics to make these….
It’s not too late to make something for Christmas! There are TWO DAYS LEFT! Plenty of time….
Love to all at Christmas.
Sharing at these parties….
