I love upcycling. There’s something about it that just makes my hoarding heart soar!
The snowmen were made out of an old torn scarf, and the presents and Christmas trees were made out of an old blanket (the same one Steel used to make the tree for the Monkey Advent Calendar for his Godson). We don’t let anything go to waste!
To make your own ornaments, cut out 2 of each shape you want (a front & back side). Use a needle & thread to sew the outer edge of the pattern, using an over-under running stitch. Leave a small opening before you close it up to add stuffing. We keep a bag of non-reusable scrap fabric (fabric that is too small/left over from cutting other shapes) to use as stuffing. If you have cotton stuffing, that’s even better! Once you’re done stuffing it, close up the stitch by tying a knot.
For more detailed/step-by-step instructions with pictures, check out the Letter Christmas Ornaments I made last year, using the same technique. Happy Holidays!
