Surprise Holiday Gift Workshop – Revealed

Here are some photos from our wonderful parent/child gift making workshop in December. I’ve been waiting to reveal the gifts since the final product was unknown to the participants until they unwrapped it on Christmas! The parents & kids were separated while they each made portions of the gift. I baked, glossed, & assembled everything then wrapped it all up for their holiday SURPRISE.

We are planning to have another parent/child craft night in February for Valentine’s Day – stay tuned…

Funny all the insecure comment that were made by the adults at the beginning… their flowers came out amazing!

Gift Making – Wet Felted Acorn Pendants

Averyboo Arts

My son made these “acorn top” pendants for his cousins for Thanksgiving. These would also make cute Christmas gifts and could be winter-ized by painting the tops white or covering with snow glitter. The balls were made with wool and a wet felting technique. Little ones can do this with supervision as hot water is part of the process. Have fun!

Teacher’s Gifts

Owl Brooches

My son & I made our very first Teacher’s Gifts this week — the first of many to come I’m sure.

Avery goes to Little Owl Preschool, so when I came across this tutorial, I knew I wanted to make these cute little owl brooches.

I’ve been extremely busy at the studio and wasn’t able to start working on the gifts until the day before we needed them.  Although this was a fairly simple project, I had to make 9 owls, so it took me about 8 hours to finish all of them.

This is my favorite of the bunch

Avery helped me sew the bodies, iron, and stuff them with fluff. If we had started the project a few days earlier, I would’ve had him do more on his own. By 1am, my husband started helping me sew on the eyes so I could finally get to bed by 2.

The child was delighted to see the finished product in the morning & promptly assigned which owl was going to whom. Avery was very excited to give his teachers their holiday gift and I was very happy to help 🙂
