deck the halls with lots of felt

December 21, 2010

Cause I’ve got tons of it.    Want some?  Let me know.

I can’t explain what it is about it.
You really can make anything out of it.

xmas lights:

crazy eyed bunny hats a la NormaW style:

fireplace tv ornament with real twigs (idea swiped from somewhere, I can’t remember where, sorry):

And what do you do when your blog friend that you’ve never met transforms your family into Fisher Price People stamps?

Well, you do the same to hers using, yep, felt!  And make them into People ornaments.

If only I had her craftsmanship.  Thank you Tracy!  You’re the bestest!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.  I think Christmas crafting is over for me, now it’s on to cooking.  Who’s idea was it to have guests?  Oh wait, that was me too.

Next year, I am starting on the Advent Calendar early, like June.  Cause this just ain’t cutting it anymore:

“Look mama, Shrek hands!”

This was after scrubbing.

Happy 2011!  Here it comes.

    Love it all! My favorite thing is knowing that you’ve been using chalk to improvise an advent calendar! Too funny! Better than me, I let my kids go wild this month while I tried to get everything done..we had two prefab advent calendars gifted to us and yep, you guessed it, we used not a one! Love the little people ; ) Merry Christmas!

    I think we both know I have an equal obsession with felt. I’m loving all that you came up with. Those stamps are rad. Maybe I should make you an advent calendar for next year. 🙂

    Luckily I didn’t have people over, as my kitchen looked like a bomb went off in it after my Christmas dinner…

    I Love all your felt projects. Are you really giving felt away? I would love to take some off your hands – no problem. I’m trying to get some projects together myself – felt really is the most wonderful stuff.

  21. hahahaha. super duper love the FP little people motif..
    You are Brilliant!

  22. Rebecca said

    Oh, my. Felt, stamps, and little people? Too much awesome.

  23. I wish you a wonderful new year 2011!

    I LOVE crafting with felt and you’ve got some great ideas for me to steal 😀 Love the hat especially! And it’s funny you should mention that your Dad always made sure you kept fish in the house – I’m a cancer as well! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’m really want to go for a couple in a small glass kinda thing but even that we need to find extra space. But I think it’s important to have animals i.e. living things in the home. And flowers!

    I LOVE this post. I love the felt fireplace, and the little felt peoples (who in the world makes those adorabel stamps!!!)and the card!
    ah…there is some inspiration coming to me!

  34. You must tell me the name of your friend with the Little People stamps. I NEED some LP stamps. I love those “vintage” (I’m 32, how come toys I played with as a kid are vintage???) Little People so much. I think I’m going to start collecting them. I’m late to the game, I know.

    I love felt. It had me at “no fraying.”
