Project #122: Black Forest Felt Antlers

Finished-antlers1

Felt Antlers by Mereta from One More Mushroom

A cute little addition for a kid's room for that safari feel.

What you'll need:

* 8 x 12 piece of brown wool felt

* 8 x 12 piece of white or cream wool felt

* Needle

* Brown and white thread

* Scissors

* Batting

Tools

  Steps-anters

Step 1: Cut two pieces of the brown felt in the shape of a wood plaque. Cut four pieces of the cream felt in the shape of antlers.

Step 2: Sew together the two pieces of brown felt (you can sew by hand or with a sewing machine). Sew together the four pieces of the cream felt (two separate antlers).  Sew the felt pieces together with as little of a seam as possible. Don't worry about sewing right sides together, it doesn't matter with felt.  

Step 3: Stuff the felt plaque with batting.  Stuff the two antlers with batting (you may want to use a chopstick to stuff the antlers).

Step 4: Sew the felt plaque shut.  

Step 5: With the brown thread on the back of the plaque sew a little hook for hanging.

Stel 6: Trim the end of the antlers slightly at an angle so that the antlers will curve upwards.  Turn the edges of the felt antlers in 1/8 of an inch and stitch onto the felt plaque with the white thread.  

You're finished!

Project #120: Fringe Christmas Streamers

CF14_result5

Fringe Christmas streamer by Véronique from Pichouline

I love the shiny foil material and it gives a kitschy shiny look to all your winter festivities….

what you'll need:
*foil ribbon – different colours
*scissors – fringe scissors if you have

Depending on how long you want to make your streamers cut of the length you need. I took +/- 1m.
To make one streamer you will need 3 lengths of ribbon. You can choose the colours you want, I chose silver & pink.

Streamers_step1

Step 1:
Start cutting fringes on one side, evenly spaced. Leave the center of your ribbon un cut.

Cut fringes on the other side. If you want finish the fringes quicker roll your ribbon, you will need sharp scissors to go through all the layers.

If you want to make sure you don’t cut to far, draw a thin line in the middle as a guideline.

Streamers_step2
 
Repeat step 2 on the other two ribbons, make the width of the fringes differently.
Step 2:
Lay the streamers on each other and start twisting 2 or 3 times every cm.

Hang-up your kitschy streamers and let’s enjoy the festivities!
