Hi friends! How are you doing?
Me and my son have been making Christmas ornaments over here. And we’d sure love to share.
They are really easy and a lot of.
I think there’s just something really special about making handmade ornaments?
All you need is some air dry clay, a rolling pin, a couple of Christmas cookie cutters, a straw, a few interestingly textured items to give your ornaments some lovely festive patterns, brush and watercolors and some yarn. That’s it.
To make our ornaments, we first rolled our clay into about 3 mm thickness.
We used our cutters to cut out various shapes.
We used a fir tree branch and a rolling print to make a fun imprint.
We also used a piece of burlap ribbon to make a pattern.
To make sure we’ll be able to hang our ornaments, we made holes in them using a straw.
We let the ornaments dry for a day or two. And then we painted them.
Finally we added festive pieces of yarn to be able to hang our ornaments.
Easy and fun.
We are wishing you the best Holiday Season!
We love you,
Petra and her family
Hello dear friends!
I hope that you are all doing fine.
I am confirming that I am still here, and crocheting… Always!
Actually, I would like to show you my latest creation, a crochet snowman. Ta-dah!
I’ve had this snowman kind of idea in my mind for quite some time, I think I’d even mentioned it in one of my posts here on this blog a couple of years ago, posting a picture of a snowman just being made… Well, that one never got finished, just until now.
Having a little boy now, I thought it could be sweet to make something unique for him this winter.
So, a snowman was born.
And my baby (well, almost 3 years old baby) likes his new toy friend very very much – he just grabs him by the hat and off they go together… 🙂
My plan was to make it rather tall. Using an Aran weight yarn (Red Heart Soft) and a 4.5 mm hook it turned out to be almost 18 inches (45 cm) tall.
In case you wonder about the pattern… I do have it written down on paper, I just need to make slight changes, transfer it to my computer, take step-by-step pictures… and then I will surely share it with you. Once it’s all done I will let you know here on this blog.
And now I am rushing to make 2 more, one the same size, one even bigger. Our living room (which is more like a play room now) just needs them… I think 🙂
Thank you for letting me share!
I am wishing you a lot of peace and joy during this beautiful time of year.
With lots of love,
