Wet Felted Embroidery Hoop Ornaments

Carrying on with giving my wet felted samples with yarns a new life, I ordered embroidery hoops in various sizes so that I could turn my samples into ornaments.   Here are all the samples with yarns I made last year.

Misc Felting 2021

Three of them were too thick to use in the embroidery hoops, so they will be sold as mug rugs.

Because I was only able to get one ornament out of each sample, I used the largest hoop possible for each one.  The smallest are 4 inches, then 5 inches and the largest is 6 inches. I also had a pink sample of felt with sari silk fibers (one of my thinnest and best yet) that was just sitting around.  Natasha Smart has a video on YouTube showing how to make these which is similar to making the Christmas wreath.   I still have some hoops left and will most likely be making more Christmassy ornaments in the future.  You don’t need to hang these up just on the tree.  I have one hanging on the book case.

It ties in with my décor as I have painted a few seascapes over the years and these blue ones remind me of the ocean.
