Felt Gingerbread House & Tree Ornaments Giveaway

November 28, 2011, 08:00 am  Posted by Lark

We have a fun felt gingerbread house giveaway that beats any Cyber Monday deal. With Thanksgiving behind us the Christmas season is now officially in full swing. Jeanette Lim, felt artist extraordinaire, owner of the Etsy shop umecrafts, and author of Big Little Felt Universe, has generously provided us with a crazy-cute Christmas set to give away. The felt set includes nine cute-as-a-button ornaments (one being an enigmatic Christmas pickle), two gingerbread cookies and a “glass” of milk for Santa, and a gingerbread house brightly decorated with candy canes, gumdrops, and piped icing. The roof of the house even lifts off so you can store the ornaments inside! How clever is that?


To be entered for a chance to win the holiday felt set (gingerbread house, ornaments, cookies, and glass of milk), please leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Friday, December 09. Any comment is fine—though we’d love to hear what kind of crafting you do for the holidays…gifts, decorations for your home, handmade cards, etc.! One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by Tuesday, December 13.

    So far, we haven’t done anything except get the decorations down from the attic.  We still need to go get our trees (we get 2, usually)!  I hope to make a HUGE tree skirt for the taller tree – normally 9-10 feet tall.  The one I have is small and the tree always dwarfs it.  

    Otherwise, just hoping to get in ANY quilting time after I’m done with my BSN in 8 days!!  :)

    Oh my word, those are the cutest! I’m just now starting a garland made from fabric circles–it’s my first Christmas craft of the season. :)

    Shelly says:

    These are absolutely adorable! I used to make all sorts of holiday crafts & gifts but my family is now dramatically smaller so I just make little goodies for my dogs.

    Christine says:

    Felt things are too adorable. I’ve been planning on making a felt Dalmatian keychain but I haven’t gotten to it. I love decorating gingerbread houses (real ones, o’course) so I love this!

    justval says:

    Those are so adorable. I made  Christmas trees made from felted wool sweater pieces, paper garlands and pom poms for my daughter who is will not be able to come home for the holidays. This is her first Christmas away from home. She can decorate her apartment and have bits and pieces of Mom there!

    Victoria says:

    The glass half-full of milk is so creative and so cool! During the holidays, I like to bake desserts. This year I’ll be making mini apple pie cookies.

    martinmosaics says:

    I really love this set! How cute! I am really getting into felt applique. It is a fairly quick art form. Well, mine are because they aren’t way complicated! :-)  Every year my mantle decorations are new and different. One of my daughters or myself has made something and want to use it there. We always use fresh holly tree leaves and berries somehow! And candles! we are all into repurposing things…so you never know what else you might find on the mantle :-)

    Jeanne says:

    That is so cute!  And the bugs won’t get into it like real gingerbread. 

    domestic diva says:

    We make cookies, decorations, and pretty much every other holiday thing we do.  So much fun!

    louise says:

    This is adorable! I’m making stuffed toys, framing pictures, designing my christmas cards, making some clothes…. hmmmm, that’s a lot!

    I’ll be making something out of clay.. 

    Tina @ Squirrel Acorns says:

    Wow, this is amazingly cute.  Love that she included a Christmas pickle!  My 7yo has informed me that we must get one after seeing them at one of those crazy-huge Christmas stores.  I usually craft a few presents (always xmas eve pajamas for the kids), as well as some home things.  Working on finishing my quilted tree skirt ASAP.

    MelodyJ says:

    I like craft painting for the holidays.

    I am making pillows for gifts!

    charity mcallister says:

    This is so cute! I love to make felt ornaments and hang them from the packages as part of the wrapping.

    Anne Kendall says:

    I’ve made a lot of felt ornaments for our tree, and stockings, too!  I’d love to try and tackle a big, felt nativity scene one day, when I have all that extra holiday time…haha!  Making quilted potholders, mug rugs, aprons, and placemats for gifts this year. :-)

    kelly says:

    so sweet … please keep those creative juices flowing! NICE :)

    VickiT says:

    Oh my gosh! Those are just adorable. They would be perfect for my Granddaughter who is I think getting a little play kitchen for Christmas. I am still hoping to be able to make her some play food for her kitchen yet this year but we’ll see if I find the time. I still have some table runners to finish, six Christmas stockings and a tree skirt or two.  Next year I’ll be making quilts for sure. I had hoped to do those this year but I’m a perfecionist and just finished my first quilting class so I want to make a few more before doing gifts for others for holiday gifts.

    Muireann says:

    I’m hoping to sew my first Christmas stocking this year. Usually I make decorations and crochet or knit gifts. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Lisa says:

    I make air-dry-clay ornaments for family and for the kids’ teachers.

    justval says:

    My son and I are making ornaments for our Christmas tree, be it material, felt or paper. Thank you for such a wonderful give-a-way!

    Wehaf says:

    I’ll be crocheting lots of blankets to give as gifts.

    Jodi says:

    Too cute !! Love these ornaments. This holiday I just have to finish a few items. I have binding to sew on a quilt and two tablerunners that just need to be quilted and binding added. I had hoped to get a Christmas tree skirt done this year but we’ll see.

    Thank you for the giveaway and a chance to win.


    Janie says:

    Awesome!  And I wouldn’t have to fight with the frosting!

    Cori Black says:

    What a fun keepsake.  We have a tradition of doing gingerbread each year.

    muviejunkee says:

    My daughter just turned one and next year we will start a tradition of doing gingerbread houses and homemade cookies for people as well as handcrafted gifts. This is super cute and inspirational.

    OMGosh!  SO cute. I love the felt pickle ornament.

    Christine Gant says:

    I absolutely LOVE the gingerbread house!  I’ve been making felt poinsettias embellished with gold embroidery.

    This is the year of table runners at our house.  I’m having so much fun, working on something I actually have a reasonable chance of completing in time for the holidays.

    Tanya says:

    I love the ornaments!  I;m in the middle of remodeling my living room, so dont really have time to make any homemade items this year.  i do hope to try to make cards next year!  Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    Cynthia Brooks says:

    I would love this set as I have had disasters making real gingerbread houses and my son really wants one. I love sewing with felt and have made some ornaments for this year.

    Heidi aka Digital Misfit says:

    Adorable! I am making some felt ornaments and a mobile this year.  I am also quite busy with painting and updating 2 rooms, so crafting is done in nighttime bursts.

    I just love the gingerbread house!  I started making felt ornaments for my little grandkids this year so they can actually touch the ornaments on my tree.  Could never make an actual gingerbread house that we could eat…always fell apart….but this I can attempt to make.  Thanks.

    Rondah says:

    I really like the cookies and milk!  I would love to be entered in your giveaway. Thanks

    Ryana says:

    Deanna Bassett says:

    How sweet! Love your site and ideas…I could spend my time here all day!
    Your gingerbread house looks good enough to eat. Thank you for sharing.

    Sandy says:

    I wish my felt ornaments turned out as beautiful as Jeanette’s gingerbread ornaments! Practice, practice . . .

    Kristin says:

    How adorable!! I have been crafting gifts and decorations for Christmas. :)

    Guest says:

    Totally SWEET!! I think G Houses are the greatest things to make with Kids! Gets them in to baking and crafts all in the same project!

    Patty Demant says:

    What a great Xmas addition this would make to any one’s decoration collection.  It can be used over and over again, the grand children will love it!  I have made the candy and gingerbread houses only to throw them out as they fall apart hoping the birds had a good go at it!

    Studiobz says:

    These Gingerbread Men are absolutely adorable!  I think they would sell well at a craft show or be a great gift.  Love the house too!

    SSKCraft says:

    Wow looks awesome..would love to win.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
