8. Felt holly corsage
Are you looking to craft something unique for this Christmas but don’t have time? Well, try this cheerful corsage that requires only several on-hand materials and takes a few minutes to make – great for both you and your children. You will need wool felt, about 18 by 18 inches, in different colors, ribbon, holly template, hot-glue gun, iron, assorted embellishments and a brooch pin or barrette.
Start with printing the template and cutting out. Cut out one 2 ½ by 5-inch felt rectangle for every pair of leaves, and fold it in half lengthwise. Now crease it with an iron set to wool.
Trace the template using a folded rectangle and cut out the shape. Unfold your rectangle. In order to make the four-leaf design, cross 2 felt shapes and attach at the center using a low-temp glue gun.
For the two-leaf design, dab a little glue at the center of one felt shape and fold it angling the leaves. Now, glue desired embellishments to the front and a barrette or a bar pin to the back.
