OOAHAC Challenge 30

Hello Everyone

A very Happy Third Week of Out of a Hat Christmas Challenges

It all seems to be going very well and my Christmas stocks have made a fine start now. Nice that we had some people joining us again with their beautiful boxes and paper designs.

This week sees the turn of  Christmas decorations and as I am into making things from felt I decided I would make some felt snowflakes.

These are based on some from kits that my daughter buys to make elaborate Christmas stockings. They always look so lovely. The link for where she gets the kits is here and I think she has made almost all of them in the last couple of years. My snowflakes aren't as good as the ones on the stockings but I am pleased with them as they glitter with all the sequins and glass beads on them.

This is a larger decoration I made but it was hard to take a photograph of it. It is made out of squares 6 each of 2 inch squares and 3 inch squares. Just fold the corners of the squares into the centre and stick the corners to each other to make a box shape. The ribbon was threaded through the top and bottom pieces before they were stuck in place.

Do pop to see what the other Hatters have made for the challenge-Janet, Florence and Sandra and I hope you will join us in the challenge and have fun along the way
