Felt Christmas Tree Centerpiece

My other project from last weekend's crafting mayhem was a felt christmas tree centerpiece, based on this pattern.

I was initially searching for something that resembles the candy cane tree at my Dad's, but no such luck.  I'll have to look at it closely when I'm home for the holidays this year so I can recreate it.  In any case, this project fit perfectly with my hankering for felt as of late.

Unfortunately, hot glue guns appear to be my arch nemesis.  A few bits of glue stuck to your finger is par for the course, but a massive burn blister on my index finger is probably an indication that I have less coordination than previously thought.  At least my stitching didn't result in any bloodshed or other injury.

 I found some cute gingerbread man embellishments that ended up looking just too cute.

 I think I'll take this to work so I have some holiday spirit while doing paperwork!  Hmm, I should probably wait a few weeks to take it in so my coworkers don't think I'm too odd.  I admit though, I feel like I'm in the Christmas spirit extra early this year because of all of the snow outside!

  1. I LOVE this! And it's exactly what I've been thinking of for my next craft night. Besides, it's not truly a crafting experience until you've glued your fingers together! :D
