In Holiday Hints

Are you ready for some more Holiday Hints? Today’s feature is Christmas Decór!

Last year I went *stocking crazy* using my stash of felted wool sweaters and the Christmas Stocking pattern in Warm Fuzzies, page 34.

The Felted Wool Pomander is made from rolled-up wool scraps. What a pretty way to use up left-overs from other projects! My free tutorial is available here and in the sidebar.

Same concept but different shape: The Rosette Wreath in Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts magazine.

Oh, and what would our holiday decór be without our beloved Hoopy the Snowman? I made him last year and the boys were so happy to see him hanging around again this year.

We usually try to get our Christmas tree up over Thanksgiving but with all the company and the craft show coming up, I just haven’t had the time! Have you started decorating yet?

    Hi Betz,

    You ideas are fab!

    I have been somewhat lacking in inspirations this year…I think its like a winter bug or something :)

    Having said that, when you have children (and I do) one has to carry on, hoping the inspiration will find us working..So I have put up some very simple decorations so far, hoping they will inspire me to do more.

    By the way, I have been inspired the cashmere bunny you did, and I have done a fabric version this xmas. I have put your pattern for it here: http://birdcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/11/christmas-inspiration.html

    Hope this is ok with you.
    Let me know what you think?

    Thanks,
    Bird

    Great ideas, you must have the most amazing stash of felted sweaters.

    We don’t get into full decorating swing until the calendar page has turned to December. Today it is! I’m really in love with that wool pomander!

  • Jen

    I agree with Mayaluna. I usually wait to decorate until the 1st of December, which by the way I can’t believe is here. You have inspired me to get the decorating in motion. I LOVE the stockings. They are so festive.

    These are all so awesome and beautiful! How can one person contain so much creativity? LOL (…slinks off to find wool sweaters at Goodwill)

  • Budimir

    Love your stuff! The wreath is gorgeous! Always gets me in the mood to knit up something or make something!

    I put up my Christmas tree the first weekend of November every year, it gets me in the mod to start my holiday knit gifts during a busy school year, otherwise I’ll be crazy come mid-December!

  • Pam

    I have been wanting to try felting, and you have completely motivated me!

  • cutandsew

    I am in love with all your great craft ideas, I can’t wait to try them out, I especially love your etch and sketch lap top case cover you did a year ago. I found it via craftstylish I believe.

    I even added your site to my blogroll so I can share it with all of my readers as well!
