1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Footprint Christmas Tree Ornament on: December 08, 2015 09:27:39 AM
Hello, here is a project I did with my niece and nephew the other day with things I already had in stock. Quick and easy! This would be cute for Christmas cards, decorations, or ornaments if you draw a string through the top.


Supplies:
* Watercolor paper
* Green acrylic paint
* Paintbrush
* Scissors
* Red card stock
* Mod Podge
* Hot glue gun + glue sticks
* Rhinestones
* Alphabet stamps + inkpad
* Glitter

Step 1
Paint bottom of kid's foot with green paint & have them step onto watercolor paper (let dry)

Step 2
Cut out the footprints and glue them to red card stock, overlapped in a Christmas tree shape

Step 3
Use alphabet stamps + inkpad to stamp and spell out the child's name

Step 4
Use hot glue gun to adhere rhinestones

Step 5
BE CAREFUL WITH THIS PART... coat with mod podge all over except avoid the area you stamped and the rhinestones. The mod podge can smear the ink if it is not set. Lightly sprinkle with glitter and shake off any excess

Step 6
Let dry, cut out the red cardstock in a Christmas tree shape. You can punch a hole through the top and draw string through if you wish to hang on a Christmas tree.

This is the latest pet hat I made. Can you tell it's a monster? Or does it just look weird? haha Oh well...

This is what I've been working on lately. I made a rabbit one back in 2002ish? I can't remember if I ever posted it on craftster or not. My cat was purring in all of these pics even though she was annoyed! lol She finds the bunny ears especially annoying.

I made this little Christmas ornament today. It is a very basic pattern with a ton of versions floating around but here is how I made mine...

MATERIALS
+ yarn
+ 9mm safety eyes, pink
+ fiberfill
+ black thread
+ Size F crochet hook

HEAD
R1 - (Use magic loop 6 technique OR...) Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook (6 sts)
R2 - *2 sc in next st* repeat 6 times (12 sts)
R3 - *1 sc, 2 sc in next st* repeat 6 times (18 sts)
R4 - *2 sc, 2 sc in next st* repeat 6 times (24 sts)
R5 - *3 sc, 2 sc in next st* repeat 6 times (30 sts)
R6-R10 - Sc around (30 sts)
R11 - *3 sc, dec*  repeat 6 times (24 sts)
R12 - *2 sc, dec*  repeat 6 times (18 sts)
R13 - *1 sc, dec*  repeat 6 times (12 sts)
At this point attach 9mm safety eyes and stuff firmly.
R14 - Dec around 6 times (6 sts)
Cut yarn leaving tail, fasten off, weave in ends.

ARMS
The arms are worked directly from the body so you don't have to go back to sew them on. Repeat this step 8 times.

On underside of head draw up a loop of yarn. Ch 12. 3 sc in second ch from hook, *3 sc in next st* 4 times, sc across untill end, fasten off, weave in ends.

Thread about 8 inches of embroidery floss through the top of the head so you can hang it from Christmas tree.

Enjoy!

This little owl is my latest amigurumi creation. It took several hours to design it. If I crocheted it with the pattern already made it would probably take me 2 or 3 hours to make because of the sewing involved. He's about 3.5 inches tall. These things are starting to get addicting!

I've been crocheting for a long time and just recently started designing my own patterns. Of course I want to show them off! This guy is a little squirrel. At first I was trying to design a cat. It didn't quite look like a cat head but I still liked the shape so I kept going! Glad I did! Smiley
