Red Brolly had the template and tutorial for these Rudolph Candy Cane Holders - click here to download.
These ones are going to my family this weekend. I sewed the eyes and mouth on rather than gluing and I also added a little piece of fake fur between his ears for that little bit of character and originality.
Minimal supplies required, felt (brown & white), red bead for nose and googly eyes.
Each one was unique so that the children will know which one is theirs, I just changed the colour of the ear inserts.
I think this pattern would be great, enlarged to be used as a utensil holder. That may have to wait for another day/year.
I'm Looking At You!
Now, what is next? Cath over at Bits 'n Bobs made a beautiful Button Christmas Tree in a frame yesterday - I loved how it turned out. I may need to scrimmage through my
junk supplies to find a unused picture frame.
Although first on my list for tomorrow is to make up some Christmas Decoration kits for the children. I will definitely be adding, the beaded elves, the beaded candy canes, maybe the dolly peg angels, and lots of extras ... if it is a hot day it will be nice to do some craft indoors.
Are you ready for Christmas?
