I hope this day is treating you well, Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy here to share a little holiday joy. With Halloween behind us, it is time to think of the festive and giving season ahead of us. I always have a hard time of finding a gift to make that doesn’t take days or weeks to finish. I always like to give a little handmade gift to my family and friends. These ornaments do not require a lot of time to whip up and you can make several. It is fast, fun, and no sew.
The supplies you will need:
2 contrasting fabrics- you will only need 6 1/4″ x 20″
Felt – Cut it into a 3″ diameter circle
iCraft Deco Foil Hot Melt Adhesive
iCraft® DECO FOIL™
Beads for interior of the flower – I used a variety of sizes
Hot glue gun
Cut the HeatnBond® Ultrahold to 6 1/4″ x 17″
Iron the HeatnBond® Ultrahold to the wrong side of one of your fabrics. Remove the paper backing and iron the HeatnBond® Ultrahold fabric piece to the wrong side of your other piece of fabric. Trim the piece to 6″ x 17″. Cut the piece in half.
Iron a piece of iCraft Deco Foil Hot Melt Adhesive to the face of one of your fabrics. Just do this to one of your pieces.
Iron your choice of iCraft® DECO FOIL™. There are several colors, so the possibilities with fabric are endless.
Peel off your foil after it has cooled completely. Cut your 6″ x 8 1/2″ into 2″ squares.
Off to the craft table with your hot glue gun
Add a bead of hot glue along the edge of one side of your square.
Fold it over on itself to make a cone. Make sure that you overlap your square the same way each time. The seams will look a lot better if they are all fold over the same way.
Make 12 Foiled cones and 12 unfoiled. Cut your ribbon to your desired length. Mine was 7″.
Glue it to the felt circle.
Put a fair amount of hot glue on half of your circle.
Position your unfoiled cones on the felt. Apply a little pressure to make sure that they are well adhered to the felt.
Repeat on the opposite side of the circle.
Apply a bead of glue along the side of the foiled cone. I did it so that the seam would not be visible.
Apply pressure onto the cones to make sure they are adhered.
Add a large amount of hot glue in the center of your flower. Add your beads to the center.
All complete!! You can use these as gifts, your own tree or you could use these are pretty gift tags on your presents.
I played with then and these are a couple of variation I made. This one I laid the top layer of cones straight.
I used a little Fabric Fuse Liquid Adhesive , pink glitter, and made this fun version.
The last is my absolutely favorite. A little iCraft® DECO FOIL™ Teal and some pinking shears and created this one.
I hope you enjoyed a little blast of Holiday Cheer.
