Festive Felt

I love hand made things and I especially love felt. So you can imagine how happy I was to find these beautiful needle felted ornaments on Etsy. The ornaments come in a variety of colors (I liked the green but there any many colors to choose from) and it seems like I'm not the only one with great taste as Janice's red ornaments were featured in Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts Magazine. To purchase the ornaments or to see more of Janice's beautiful handiwork please visit her shop called  Wool Sculptures on Etsy.  P.S. check out her hand made mohair teddy bear - one word - Awesome!
