    I just ran across crocheted lights and can’t wait to give them a try.
    But the ome ornament that has stood the test of time is the handpainted ornament made by my sister and I at least twenty years ago. Each year it features on whatever tree we have.

    I love to felt customized stockings for the grandkids!
    I would LOVE to get the book to broaden my ideas with my favorite fibery craft!

    Catherine says:

    I made some cone trees last year – - one with yarn and the other with layered buttons & felt. Those are super cute. I also have a plastic canvas Santa doorhandle thingamabob that my mom made when I was a kid & I love that.

    Oh, and I’m making stockings right now that are already getting me super pumped. :)

    Lynn says:

    Oh, our tree is filled with hand made ornaments. It is hard to choose. I guess my favorites now are the one’s made by my mother.

    Meadowlark says:

    I need any sort of felt help I can get. My stuff always looks like a kindergartener in a blindfold crafted it. :(

    Missie says:

    I made my family felt stockings last year. My sister is an X-ray tech, so I made her a Santa holding an x-ray in front of his chest. I cut his ribs out of little pieces of white felt. It was super tough, but it came out really cute. She loved it too!

    Tina @ Squirrel Acorns says:

    Last year I made a felt half-eaten gingerbread boy using Elsie Marley’s free pattern (on her blog). I just love it! Every time I see it, I think to myself, “not my gumdrop buttons!”

    SewLindaAnn says:

    My overall favorites are the box of homemade ornaments from my son’s elementary school years. My fave from me are the mini cross-stitched Christmas themed ones I’ve made.

    K-ren says:

    I made wreaths out of all recycled materials with my kindergarten art class. We used strips of cardboard rolled up and painted, corks with holes drilled in them and little tassles of yarn. They had so much fun and the wreaths are beautiful. I am glad I made one too as it is becoming one of my favorite decorations this year.

    Sharlyngp says:

    As a kid, my mom would provide us with small, colorful squares of felt and encourage us to be creative. I still rely on felt for lots of different uses. My favorite handmade holiday decoration??? my Christmas stocking, knit by my great aunt, with my name and birth year knit in the top and Christmas trees, santas with mohair beards, sequins and jingle bells all knit into it. It is really special!

    Saganaga says:

    i recently made a frozen ice wreath made with cranberries in a bunt pan ~ it turned out lovely !

    Lisa says:

    I love making anything out of felt & last year made felt stuffed pillows for my kids. This year I’d love to make some cool x-mas trees. We also love painting our own ornaments – my kids really enjoy that.

    Wendy Gilberd says:

    Last year I made a garland from felt circles and vintage mercury beads. I love it!

    Melissa says:

    Every year I make and give away dozens of paper cranes and keep a few for the tree. Thank you for your generous giveaway.

    I had so many ideas for christmas decorations this year, but had no time to make any. :0( I’m planning on making some between Christmas and New Year which we can use next year as the run up to the holidays is always too busy. My favourite handmade decorations have to be the cross stitch tree decorations sewn by my wonderful mum.

    Colleen says:

    I love to make decorations out of felt or wool! Its so forgiving to work with lol I love the gingerbread ornaments that have a bite out of them – that is what I am planning to make this weekend! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    justval says:

    My favorite holiday decoration is a little bazaar but it warms my heart still and brings joy to my heart. Eighteen years ago when my children were around 3 and 4, I spread out a plain white shower curtain on the kitchen floor, grabbed my red paint, brushes and 2 kids. I let them paint their hands and feet and make prints on the shower curtain. Perfect entertainment for 2 little ones when the temperatures are bitter outside. We made 2 shower curtains, one for me and one for their grandmother. We still hang ours at the beginning of December so I can enjoy it all month long.

    Michelejudd says:

    Oh this book is on my wishlist! My favorite holiday decorations are the handmade ones from my childhood that my sisters and I created.

    Very nice — I’m just getting geared up for holiday sewing right now! I’m looking forward to making some caroler doorstops…

    Villagenew says:

    I love working with felt, and since I am just learning (and not yet very good), this book has caught my eye in a great way.

    Pamela says:

    I love felt for the holiday’s. I make stockings, tree skirts and center pieces. So hope I am the lucky one. HAPPY HOHO’S and Thanks for a great giveaway!

    Nikki Pacheco Theard says:

    Each year as our children grew up, crafting home-made ornaments would keep us busy after Thanksgiving. Painting, gluing, and stitching felt into charming embroidered and beaded animals and forest gnomes together with friends and cousins is my most precious memory. Right now I’m working up this years special edition pinecone and felt Christmas Elves. I’ve beaded up each of their pointy hats with a different pattern. Thank you for the chance to win the popular felt art book: Fa La La La Felt

    Amy says:

    My favorite handmade ornament is an adorable felt elephant I made for my daughter last year. Really looking forward to enjoying this book and getting inspired to make holiday crafts all year long!

    Poppy says:

    So many cute projects in this book. My favorite handmade holiday decoration is a latch-hooked Santa that my dad made in the early ’70s. Santa is the shape of a cone with a big red wooden bead for a nose and a giant yarn pom-pom on his hat. He is on the verge of tacky, but he really makes me smile every year.

    Anne says:

    My favorite handmade holiday decoration is stringing cranberries and puffed grains to make garland for our trees outside. We see all kinds of cute lil creatures out there eating them…squirrels, birds, we once even spotted a raccoon!

    Barb says:

    Anything handmade is great. A needlework guild I belonged to years ago did a wonderful cross stitched ornament that incorporated a needle as the cross piece of the A.

    Danna BC says:

    I am so sorry about the extra posts! I kept getting an error message and then when I refreshed the page to see if that would help, I had four posts up!

    Last year I made some Yo Gabba Gabba shrinky dink ornaments for the kids. I think they’re my current favorite.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

    Good – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs and related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Nice task.
