New Year's crafts with children: soft fur-tree toys

Traditional Christmas tree decorations made of glasslook, of course, beautiful, but they are not too safe for children. An original alternative can be soft felt toys that you can easily do yourself. Most parents are familiar with the internal contradictions that arise on the eve of the New Year celebration. On the one hand - the desire to decorate the tree, and not only the Christmas tree, the traditional shiny glass spheres and stars, but on the other - the fear for the safety of the smallest households, which these very balls will necessarily want to touch or even taste.

Today we will tell you how to make a nice Christmas decoration in the form of a Christmas tree in just 15-20 minutes. Everything you need to createFir-tree pendants are a felt fabric of green and brown color, thread, a wad of cotton wool and multi-colored buttons. If you want to make a stationary decoration, then find a wooden stick and any object or piece of material that can become a reliable basis. Step 1 Draw or print on a thick paper template. Using it, apply the contours of the tree to the felt and cut out the necessary details. To create one toy, you will need two cut silhouettes of the tree and one rectangular piece of brown felt for the trunk. Step 2 Lay out on each side of the future tree multicolored buttons - they will play the role of toys. Then firmly sew them. Step 3 Fold the halves of the Christmas tree and start sewing them along the contour, without affecting the bottom part for the time being. When you sew one side, insert a jute loop between the tops of the tree, grab it with a thread and sew the second half of the toy. Now put inside the Christmas tree a little cotton wool for volume, and between the lower edges - the felt trunk. Sew the bottom edges of the tree.

You can hang your fir tree on a decorative New Year tree or put it on a shelf, after fixing a stick-stick, for example, in a large wooden bead or coil. In a similar way, you can make felt toys of any other shape, for example, in the form of a bell, snowflake, heart or bunny. cuddlybuddly.com
