December’s “Try This” posts will be all about Christmas…fun little crafts I’d like to try. I saw this ornament in the Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Crafts 2011 magazine.
Cut a piece of felt 1-1/2″ x 4-1/2″.
Roll the piece of felt into a cylinder and glue.
Trace the ornament shape on the felt and cut out 12 pieces.
Why I only photographed 9 pieces is a mystery. Glue the straight edge of the pieces to the cylinder. Thread yarn through a bead and glue it on top of the ornament.
To see the ornament in two colors of felt, check out Felt 3-D Christmas Ornament on the Better Homes & Gardens website.
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.
