3-D Wednesday with My Creative Time!!

Hello friends and welcome back!! Today I have a cute, felt Halloween ornament to share with you today!

It's nice to make things other than cards and I love when you can combine things like paper crafting and sewing or stitching!!  I used the recently released Witch Hat Topper Die. This die is intended to make the cutest toppers for treat bags but can be used for so much more!

I started by die cutting all the pieces out of a few different colours of felt I had in my stash.



It's best to run them through your die cutting machine a few times to get the cleanest cut. I didn't do that with the hat and spider and ended up with a lot of fuzzy edges on the hat and a torn spider!  What's nice about this particular die is that it is already 2 pieces joined.  This took a bit of pressure off while stitching. Simply fold it over and stitch together!


I used white floss because I thought the contrast would look good.  I also stitched in a piece of bakers twine for the hanger and the little spider!



Here's a look at the completed stitching...


Now, I actually cheated when it came to the band and buckle of the hat. Instead of sewing those pieces on, I used Glossy Accents to adhere them. This glue works great for this!!


I couldn't resist adding small googly eyes to the spider.


I guess you could hand this out to a VERY special trick or treater. Or if you're really ambitious, make a bunch of these ahead of time.  This really didn't take too long to make.

I hope you found a little inspiration here today! These little ornaments can be made with many dies in your stash, you just have to think outside the box a little :)


Thank you for stopping by!!!

Laurie
