Advent Calendar: Part 3

Welcome to part 3 in my advent calendar tutorial. Today, you'll find the final 10 patterns to finish your calendar. Again, no sewing is required for any of these squares.

Just a reminder, my squares are 4 1/2 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches long. Copy and paste the patterns into a word document to scale to your desired size. Get your fabric glue ready and let's finish those squares.

A Christmas wreath.

Supplies: green felt, red poms, red ribbon for a bow on your wreath {square is dark blue}.

Trim a Christmas tree.

Supplies: Green felt and multi-colored mini poms {square is dark blue felt}

Decorate a gingerbread house.

Supplies: tan, white, red and light blue felt {square is dark green felt}. Use multi-colored mini poms as candy to decorate.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Supplies: gray, pink, black and cream felt {square is blue felt} and 2 black poms for the eyes. I wanted to embroider 'not a creature was stirring' but when I made this, I was still new to embroidering and ran out of room.

Frosty the snowman.

Supplies: white, orange and felt in whatever color you like for the scarf {square is blue felt}. 2 black mini poms for the coal eyes and 3 blue poms for the body of the snowman.

All the other reindeer...

Supplies: brown, cream, white, dark brown and black felt {square is blue felt}.

The North Pole.

Supplies: red, green, white, yellow and brown felt {square is blue felt}. I embroidered 'North Pole' on the sign.

Ho Ho Ho.

Supplies: red felt {square is dark green felt}

Santa's right hand man, an Elf.

Supplies: red, green, white, brown, black and white felt {square is tan felt} and 4 yellow mini poms for the belt, shoes and top of hat. *To make the elf's rosy cheeks: put a dab of glue on his cheeks, add some red fibers from the red felt to the glue and instantly you have a rosy cheeks.

Last but certainly not least, Saint Nick.

Supplies: red, white, peach and black felt {square is blue felt}. A white mini pom for the top of the Santa hat. *Use the technique for rosy cheeks that you used with the Elf.

Finish your squares up, peel the glue off your fingers and then come back to get some tips on putting it all together in Part 4.
