christmas craft #4

IMG_6092

we used the felt squares from this wreath craft and cut the squares even smaller.
for this craft the squares were about 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch.

we took two squares together and put a pin through them pushing them hard into the styrafoam ball.

at some point before you get too far make a loop with ribbon and push a pin in it….to hang it later.

then fill it in until it's full.

i made the squares really close together and pushed the pins in as far as i could to make it look like flowers.

annie's hands were smaller so she got tired quicker…..i like hers the way it is too.

Kimberlee J. - Do you remember me telling you that my art teacher was judgmental and maybe that’s why I hyperventilate when I have to “craft” something???? I so smiled and felt validated when I read the last line of your post. Thank YOU. 🙂
