Here is a needle felted winter season ornament - holly and berries

Started out using a cookie cutter for a pattern frame, once the basic shape was established, removed the metal and needled away, adding colors, another leaf, yarn for detailing, red felted balls and for the torny touch sewed one bugle bead ended with a small round bead to each tip.

I'm always amazed at needle fleting! Great job...I love holly...it's one of my favorite holiday images...along with snowy pine trees and snowflakes.

What a good idea.
Have you considered wearing it as a pin before you put up your tree this year?
I'd want to be showing it off  Wink

Your snowmen are very cute!
I love how you gave each of them their own personality.

What fun little guys!  I love all their different expressions, too!

oooh, they are sooo cute! I love how each one has a different expression and accessories, like each one has its own personality  Cheesy   All so wonderful but I am especially in love with the first one, I like his striped hat & scarf and his 'where am I'? expression, soooo cute!
