Hey Everyone! I hope you’ve been having a wonderful December so far, and have enjoyed the beginnings of the Christmas season! For the first time ever, I am actually almost done with my Christmas shopping; there are still a couple little things I need to pick up, but all the major things are done and bought. I’m a terribly indecisive person which means my Christmas shopping usually takes me a really long time, so this is pretty much a Christmas miracle! Today I wanted to stop by and share a really easy little felt Christmas craft with you. I love felt because you can pretty much make anything out of it and it’s so easy to work with. You could use these little gingerbread men as gift tags like I did here, as Christmas ornaments or even make a garland out of them that would look so cute hanging on a kitchen window!
YOU WILL NEED
White thread & Needle
Hot glue gun
Pen/pencil & Scissors
Polyfill for stuffing
Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter or Stencil
For each gingerbread man, you will need a top and bottom piece out of felt. I used a gingerbread man shaped cookie cutter and traced around it on my piece of felt. Cut each piece out, then decorate the top piece only. You can decorate it however you like and add as many different embellishments as you want, I just stitched around the edges of the gingerbread man with white thread and added a little red bow and two buttons with hot glue. To put the gingerbread man together, I used outlined the head part of the bottom piece with hot glue (insert a ribbon loop at the top at this point so you can hang it up/attach it to gifts later!) and let it dry, then stuffed it with polyfill. Then I outlined the arms with hot glue and stuffed them, and so on, until the whole little gingerbread man was done. At the end, I went around and trimmed any excess glue and felt fuzz with my scissors.
