|Me getting all stabby on a Christmas tree.|
|Some shapes felted but not embellished.|
I did a little more bead embroidery on this second batch of ornaments than on the first round. (You can see my first three attempts HERE if you missed them.) I think my favorite might be the star! I lucked out when I went to buy sequins that Michael's had a great multi pack of different colors and sizes as well as a package of little gold stars. Initially I had thought that I would just needle felt the white stripes onto the candy cane, but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to achieve consistent, straight lines that way. I decided to do sequin and seed bead stripes instead which adds more sparkle to the mix for sure!
The only one that I'm not totally thrilled with is my little gingerbread man. The brown that I was able to find makes him look a bit burnt and I think his expression is sort of demented. Part of the problem is that the way I did his smile makes it look like a really toothy grin... Maybe I should have tried needle felting a little bit of white to make his eyes and smile. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by to check out my second round of needle felted ornaments. I got a big ol' tub of fun cookie cutters and I hope to make more of these guys in the future... maybe in time for next Christmas!! This is a blog hop... you can see what everyone else created by using the links below.
