Some Additional Felt Ornaments
I wanted to post a picture of some additional felt ornaments I made to go with our Mary Hidden in Advent Jesse Tree lessons. Pictured are the burning bush (Moses), an ear of corn (Ruth, and yes, I do realize that the corn is anachronistic, but oh, well!), chalice (Joseph in Egypt). The children and I made them with scrap felt, a few beads and Tacky glue. You can use your own scraps and your imagination! Have fun! I do think the Jesse Tree Kit actually has a burning bush, but for some unknowable reason we only had half of our ornaments here in Delaware, so we are making the missing ones as we go along.
ETA: I made a different kind of Mary ornament today than I demonstrated below. I got the idea from
this craft tutorial at D. Blumchen. I just used what I had on hand, which was one small tinsel style pipecleaner and kitchen tin foil, but I like the idea:
I think next time I'm at Michael's, I'll get a few more tinsel pipecleaners and some glitter and sequins. This was fun to make!
