These little skates are perfect for the tree. My Christmas tree is a mixture of lots of ornaments that I’ve gathered over the years and my favourite colour is red, bright and cheery. If you have a colour co-ordinated tree this colour way may not fit the scheme. On the DecoArt website there is a “Learning” section where you can find techniques and helpful information. You will find right at the top of the list “Americana Shading & Highlight Chart” This chart names the colours that work best with each other to add dimension to your project. It takes away the guess work on what will work together.

Whilst I love zooming up and down on my sewing machine, there’s something about the shorter winter nights which makes me want to curl up in front of the fire with a hand sewing project and here’s the ideal make - Funky little felt ornaments. They’re perfect for hanging on your tree or adorning that special present. I’ve also included a freestanding version, offering up even more decorating possibilities for your dinner table or festive mantel!

This little wool stocking is quick and easy to stitch up and looks perfect with Eline’s cute penguin from the ‘Snow Friends’ set. In the original image he was wearing a Santa hat which wouldn’t have shown up against my red stocking, so I simply swapped it for a bobble hat from one of the other images in the set. I love how easy it is to change elements around with digi stamps!
