My family does an ornament exchange every year and it's always a challenge for me to find a ornament that I want to make.  I looked at the ornament page here and found a bunch that I liked but before I got the chance to start one I found an old ornament that I bought a couple years ago.  I decided to try to make one like it and I really like how they are turning out.







I have a couple different colors, options going on right now that I'll update with.  I also am toying with the idea of adding glitter or dots on the sides...  what do you think?

Those are so cute. It looks like a great way to use up those felt scraps leftover from various projects. How big are they?

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

These are lovely.  I think they look great the way they are.  If you really want to embellish them, you might add a jewel in the middle.

I saw these in the other thread and had to come and find them in the hope of some hints! 

They are really pretty!  They would look great hanging one under another, especially if they were different sizes.

They actually remind me of paper quilling.

julietalpha- some hints!

cut two piece of felt for each "arm" but make sure the inside color piece is shorter (my pieces were about 3 inches and 2 inches)

put LOTS of glue in each piece (i used tacky glue).  it helps to make it more stable and stiff.

i used clothespins to pinch the arm pieces together while drying so that they kept their shape better.

again, LOTS of glue to keep everything together!
