Felt Christmas Decorations

Last post I showed you a star Christmas decoration that was inspired from a keyring project from one of my japanese craft books.  Well I had so much fun making the star that I have made a few more decorations along the same style... I can see a new look for our Christmas tree this year!

Japanese craft book - keyring project

Here is another recent project from one of my japanese craft books.  I am really falling for japanese felt craft projects!   I had trouble sourcing wooden beads and quality string - I'm still working on that.  I'm not sure how well this keyring would hold up to going in and out of my handbag countless times... but it would be a lovely detail on a key that you leave in a door... or for keys you have hanging on a pretty key rack.

I enjoyed this project so much that I was inspired to create some Christmas decorations in the same style. I found this more 'rustic' string in the garden section of the hardware - it is some simple jute twine.

This project is from this book (ISBN 978-4-07-257064-7) again apologies I can't translate the author or title of the book.

The project is on page 16 and this is a picture of their keyring from the backcover
