12 daysa

At the end of every year I find myself surfing feverishly on the web trying to find some awesome handmade gifts to make my family and friends. And every year I showcase some of my favorites here and hopefully make a few to give some first hand reviews! This year Pinterest has made it easy to search for just about everything… so I do have a few holiday-esque boards going on there (click here to check out my boards)… but I still wanted to share my top 12 favorites here on my blog with you! I will post one or two every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until the 20th so I hope you will check back often and leave your comments too!

Okay let’s just kick off #1 right now!

Wool Felt Ornaments

There’s something about wool felt… every time the weather starts turning cold I gravitate towards felt. The texture, the warmth, the look of softness – it screams cozy winter days and nights!

I thought these ornaments would look great on any tree and would be great to gift! You can even use them to adorn your holiday wrapped gifts… 🙂 You can click on the photos to be directed to each site for info and maybe a tutorial!
