It’s time for another mix of holiday songs! If your not able to play the embedded mix above you can play the mix on 8tracks here, You can also find my previous year’s Christmas mixes here.
The cut and sew tree fabric is coming soon, I’m just waiting on proofs.
-Styrofoam balls: I opted for the firm balls that have a smooth surface
-Paper Mache balls: These were slightly tricky because they had a rubbery like ball hidden inside under the paper mache, just look for balls made of cardboard exclusively to make cutting easiest. These sorts of balls still work of course, they just take a little more care to cut.
-Glue: You’ll need thick tacky glue and a hot glue gun
-Berry Stems- these are for the noses, but you could always skip noses, cut them from felt, or paint one on instead.
-Pom-poms: these act as a buffer between the mushroom cap and body. If you glue the cap directly onto the body it ends up covering part of the face and didn’t quite match the look of the vintage ornaments.
-Paint-You’ll need red, optional colors are black and white (for face painting)
-Wire- This is to create a hanger on top, but you can also glue a plastic hanger in place like I did on a couple of the ornaments instead.
-White Flocking Powder
6. Lastly once it’s all dry you can add your face. Cut the nose stem short and push it into the ball. Paint on eyes, glue on wiggly eyes etc. and voila!
I’d love to see them if you make any!
I covered the tables with a roll of brown paper and set out crayons (which was actually most popular among the teenagers) It also made cleaning up the table for dessert a huge breeze. Thankfully now with Crafternoon every month I have gotten used to setting up tables for big gatherings, and finally have plenty of chairs!
