My Christmas tree is filled with a hodge-podge of plastic bead garlands, Styrofoam balls covered in glitter, and salt-dough faces painted by little hands. I love the significance of all of these handmade ornaments, but I have to ask myself, why do my kids get all the holiday crafting fun?!
This year, I’m adding my own handiwork to the tree with this collection of beautiful Heirloom Wool Ornaments. Each one is hand sewn in soft wool felt and then decorated with embroidery stitches and sparkly sequins and beads. They are truly a joy to make, to give, and to receive!
Purl Soho’s Heirloom Wool Ornaments Kit includes everything you’ll need to make your own set of 24 Ornaments. It is available in two palettes: Lusterware, a gorgeous combination of colors inspired by the iridescent shades of its namesake, and Milk Glass, a beautiful bundle of warm white.
From start to finish, these Heirloom Wool Ornaments add a playful, festive, and very special flair to the season. And that’s how you make a happy holiday! -Corinne
