How to make

Unicorn Decoration

Step-1

Using the templates provided, cut out 2 cream felt unicorn heads, a pink mane and fringe, yellow horn and small turquoise eye.

Step-2

With black thread, stitch all the pieces into place, and add the stitched detail on the neck, nose, ear and eye. Pop a gold bead on the eye, to add a little twinkle.

Step-3

Make a loop of wool, to hang your decoration by, and sandwich it between the two cream unicorn head shapes.

Step-4

Pin the unicorn heads together and stitch both layers around the edge. Remember to leave an inch gap at the bottom to poke the stuffing into.

Step-5

Carefully, little by little, poke the stuffing into the unicorn, making it nice and puffy. Try not to overfill your unicorn, as it can split the stitching and make it difficult to sew up the gap.

Step-6

Sew up the gap, neatly finishing your sewing on the reverse side of the unicorn, and then you’re ready to hang it on the Christmas tree.

Pineapple Decoration:

Step-1

Using the templates provided, cut out a yellow pineapple and green leaf shape.

Step-2

Pin the green leaf shape into place and stitch down with black thread. Then you can add randomly placed stitched crosses to create a pineapple type texture.

Step-3

Once all of your pineapple is stitched, pin onto a piece of yellow felt and cut around the outside to create a backing.

Step-4

Make a loop of wool, to hang your decoration by, and sandwich it between the two pineapple shapes.

Step-5

Pin the pineapples together and stitch both layers around the edge. Remember to leave an inch gap at the bottom to poke the stuffing into.

Step-6

Carefully, little by little, poke the stuffing into the pineapple, making it nice and puffy. Try not to overfill, as it can split the stitching and make it difficult to sew up the gap.

Step-7

Sew up the gap, neatly finishing your sewing on the reverse side of the pineapple, and then you’re ready to hang it on the Christmas tree.

Catus Decoration:

Step-1

Using the templates provided, cut out a green cactus, yellow plant pot and pink flower shape.

Step-2

Pin the shapes into place and stitch down with white thread. Sew a running stitch line up and down the cactus to create spines

Step-3

Once all of your cactus is stitched, pin onto a piece of green felt and cut around the outside to create a backing.

Step-4

Make a loop of wool, to hang your decoration by, and sandwich it between the two cactus shapes.

Step-5

Pin the cacti together and stitch both layers around the edge. Remember to leave a gap at the base of the plant pot to poke the stuffing into.

Step-6

Carefully, little by little, poke the stuffing into the cactus, making it nice and puffy. Try not to overfill, as it can split the stitching and make it difficult to sew up the gap.

Step-7

Sew up the gap, neatly finishing your sewing on the reverse side of the cactus, and then you’re ready to hang it on the Christmas tree.
