Leslie S. got modern and monochromatic with her felt attachments. She created a xylophone-style garland, then added a few pops of confetti color and succulent rosettes. Try stitching together simple felt shapes like Leslie to see what you can create.

The season ain’t complete without a Schlumbergera…more commonly known as a Christmas cactus. Hannah C. made a very cool felt version of this popular gift. Life-like spiky blooms fall just as gracefully as the real thing…but this one will never need watering!

Robyn F. made miniature felt leaves and crafted them into a sophisticated gift garland and gift wreath. With a bright red felt berries for an accent, these gifts are sure to make the recipient feel celebrated.

    Great Christmas ideas.
    Is there a pattern for the Christmas Cactus as well? I can’t seem to find it if there is.

          Hi Marina! We’re so sorry, but we don’t have patterns for this since our artists freehanded the designs. —Kelly
