Things will be a little quiet in this space for the rest of the week...cuz we're going to Disney World! Yay!
I thought I'd leave you with some holiday inspiration. Here's another no-sew rosette idea for you, based on the Pomander Tutorial. I made this little Christmas tree using a styrofoam cone with a 2" base, but an empty yarn cone might work as well.
I started with 3" felted wool circles, just like the pomander. Roll, glue, pin...you get the idea. I used some 1 cm red felt balls to fill in some of the gaps. The "star" is just a felty pompom, but a shiny star ornament or a felt star on top would be great too.
The little brooch in the foreground is a 3" rosette made from a 3" circle and a tiny one made from a 2" circle, glued to leaves and a pin back. Cute!
Do you remember this crazy wreath from last year? I'm planning to do a new little version, this time with the pomander rosettes.
Ok, do you have enough to work on? :) If you do make any of these, as always, I'd love to see them!
I'm off to pack (and look into why my blog has that weird stripey thing going on. Gah!). You know how I love to pack. And even though we are going to Disney WORLD, I have this song stuck in my head! (lyrics not appropriate for small ears)
Mickey, here we come!
