I love Owls and i love to make anything owl related so the other night i picked up a pile of felt i have been eyeing up for a while and decided to make a cute owl keyring. Its Miss G's 6th birthday in a few weeks and i thought i might make some keyrings to put in the party bags and this one was easy and quick to do. All i did was draw an owl body onto felt then drew wings and feet and a an eye patch and cut them all out. Now you don't have to make it up like i did you can just google owl pictures and print out one that you want to adapt. Once i had cut out my pieces i sewed and glued the bits together and added a key fob to make it into a keyring. you could make it even easier by gluing it all instead of doing any sewing.

So lets get the party started with Countdown to Christmas week 1. This project is as easy as it can get!. Wooden reindeer tree decorations. These could also be used as fancy gift tags. All you need is a wooden blank reindeer ( you could cut one out of card instead if you can’t get hold of any wooden ones!). I got mine off EBay. If you do a search for wooden shapes there are lots of sellers who sell them. You also need some paint ( I used white spray paint but acrylic or emulsion works just as well). Finally a gel pen and embellishments and your good to go!. Paint your reindeer and when its dry glue on any embellishments. I used buttons and red pom poms as noses. I used ribbon and craft wire for hanging and I used a gel pen to draw lines around the edge of the reindeer.

Today I thought I would share a cute Christmas Keepsake I have made for a craft fair I am doing next week. As with everything I do its easy peasy and doesn’t take long!.
I used a wooden bauble shape but if you don’t have any you could always cut a bauble shape out of stiff scrapbook card and that will work just as well. I sanded down the blank bauble then painted it pink. Once it had dried I used a gel pen to add the text and then I used a reindeer topper as an embellishment. I tied a cute ribbon round the top for hanging and that’s it – done!.
