Christmas Critters

DSC_0904I made these felt woodland creature ornaments when I was at home for Thanksgiving and I finally got them all on our tree! There was a lot of felt ornament crafting going on at home. That inspired me as well as my felt bunny iPad case and the bird wearing a hat ornament (below) that I got at Target on Black Friday. We went at like 9pm just for fun and did not get pushed or shoved BTW! I didn’t get much aside from this ornament, but I was very pleased with this $3 find! To prepare for my crafting session I went out and bought a bunch of sheets of $0.69 felt at the craft store then looked for inspiration pictures online. I was planning on printing out some animal templates, but ended up just free handing it! I found a few pictures of felt animals that I liked and cut out basic shapes to layer and glue on top of one another. I think the whole project took around an hour, which is pretty awesome! If I had a bigger tree, I would totally make more. I really like the cute and whimsical feel they give to the tree without being too kiddy (just kiddy enough).

If any of you made or are making felt ornaments this year I would love to see them!
