Mini felt tree decorations
We bought a lovely wooden advent calendar, with little drawers, from Homesense last year. I love how it looks, but it’s not very good for an advent calendar. The drawers are tiny. Mini felt tree decorations
Last year I bought some troll keyrings, tattoos and other small things. that I have totally forgotten about, to put in the drawers! It took ages trying to find things small enough to fit and, after spending a couple of hours checking Amazon for small toys, I gave up.
I decided I’d make mini felt tree decorations, to put in the drawers. I bought the girls a mini tabletop Christmas tree each. They took it in turns to open the drawers and added the felt tree decoration, for that day, to their Christmas tree.
I also bought 24 Emoji tattoos to put in the drawers, because, like most children these days, they love Emojis!
The girls were surprised and delighted when the first drawer was opened. We bought some battery operated LED lights for each tree. They looked lovely when all the decorations had been put on.
Making them wasn’t easy, at all!
I got ideas from Pinterest and made them without a pattern. Making them so small made it very difficult. It took me nearly 2 weeks, making a couple each night when they were in bed.
I think their favourite decorations were the Minion and Kevin the carrot (although, he hasn’t got arms and legs like Kevin!)
