Sequins and Felt

Sequins and felt have been around in the crafting world for a long, long time.  Our mother's and grandmother's crafted with them, and the holidays were a favorite time to combine these two materials.

I have a small collection of vintage Christmas felt/sequins handmade crafts.   I am particularly partial to these, they were all obviously labors of love.  Pretty intricate and time consuming creations.

This wreath was part of an entire collection of holiday displays that someone unknown created.  I have one for almost every occasion of the year.  One of the offices that I scan at was going to throw them out!  Thank goodness I was there to save them.

I love this tree skirt.  Who ever created this was a perfectionist.

Sequins are a good look for Santa.

  4. My mom made us make the felt/sequin ornaments while we were growing up. I’ll see if I can liberate some for you while I’m at home!

  5. Aw, those sequin decorations are just so sweet! We never had homemade things like these – no money for supplies…I’m gonna search thru my vintage mags again and see if I can find any how-tos.

  6. I used to make the christmas stockings a few years ago from the Bucilla kits, but I have never seen a tree or wreath like that, they are beautiful!! I just put my felted tree skirt under my tree this year…I am trusting that the kids and dog stays away from it, but they seem intriqued by it!
