Five Christmas Decorations



It's time for more fun on  and I'm excited to think it's only a few sleeps until Christmas!

Last week I mentioned I was going for a more rustic farmhouse, natural look on my main tree and living room and needed to make more tree decorations.  Well I've been busy and here's what I've come up with so far.

They're cut from stiffened burlap, the same as i used back in my fall acorn and pumpkin banner found here.

A Christmas bell

A cute No-owl! Button eyes and free printable Christmas music sheet for his beak and wings.


A sweet stocking with lace and more music for heel and toe


A star! Of course I have to have stars - super simple!


And a mittens with a wooden snowflake glued on for extra detail.



They are quite quick and easy to make and I might even make more to use as gift tags once I get around to actually wrapping them!!

Here's the set of templates you can reproduce if you like and size to suit your requirements.



I'm linking again with Amy at Love made my Home for
