Making Progress: My Holiday Project

I'm happy to announce that I've made progress on the holiday project that I planned to do for this year. I bought a few supplies (just 3 yards of different colors each - Beige, Red and Green of felt fabric/cloth, a few packs of craft buttons and a few yards of satin ribbons) from the crafts store in SM Makati last week and started doing the handmade ornaments last Sunday while Tibs was setting up our tree.

I aimed to finish at least 10 ornaments in a day but I underestimated the hand-sewing that this activity entailed. Despite that, I'm really glad to report that I was able to finish 5 ornaments already! I've cut up a few more tree and star patterns last night and I'm hoping to finish at least 3 more tonight. I also need to get more supplies of lace, ribbons and buttons but so far, I'm really enjoying this craft thingy. I'm quite surprised to see that these hands are actually capable of creating something pretty. Maia also proudly claims that it's also her project and I'm very happy to be sharing it with her.

Anyways, without further ado, I present to you some of my handiwork :) I get my inspirations mostly from Pinterest but I was also able to pull a couple more cute designs and patterns from various websites in the internet.

These were the first 3 ornaments that I finished last Sunday.
Sorry I forgot to take step-by-step photos. But these are really pretty easy to do. Surprisingly. And I tell you, I'm really not the Martha Stewart-ish kind when it came to arts and crafts so if I can do it, you sure can too!

Ornaments Up In The Tree! Yipee!


  1. Those are really cute! Agree with you on the hand-sewing thing, it really takes a lot of work, especially since felt fabric is a bit stiff.

    How many more do you plan to make?

  2. Hey Cel! I'm planning to make 10 more if my hands will permit me to. But it's really fun. :)

  3. Haha, you can do it!:) Hope you can take a picture of your tree with all the ornaments when you're done.:)

  4. inggit ako!!! kelan kaya ako makakapagstart gumawa ng decors? sis, pano ka tinutulungan ni maia? Ako, when i am working on a craft project, i make sure na either tulog or nasa kabilang bahay ang bagets.

  5. Maqui! i think 1 entire weekend would be enough for you to finish kasi magaling ka manahi :) si maia tumutulong lang either mag arrange nung mga gugupitin ko or magbilang ng mga butones. wehe. siguro mga 10mins lang ang attention span. then she moves on to play on her own. pero at least na feel nya part sya ng project. hahhaha

  6. Cel - I surely will share a photo once we finish decorating the tree :)
