Make Felt and Fabric Scrap House Ornaments

Bust your stash to make these cute little house ornaments for your Christmas tree. Minki’s Work Table made these sweet ornaments, and I love the clever way that she used an envelope as her house pattern. Her house ornaments are made from felt, but you could really use any medium or heavy weight fabric for these. Denim or corduroy would look nice for the house, especially if you choose cheery contrasting scraps to make the doors, windows, etc.

Autie at iCandy Handmade shows you how she converted a pattern for pretty paper pinwheels into a fabric pinwheel project.

Make Your Own Mod End Table

Make a Mod Comic Book Table

Give an old side table or an end table from the thrift store a fresh, midcentury modern look! Kat and Cam from Our Nerd Home used a homemade stencil and old comic book pages to add a pop of contrasting color to an old end table. What makes this project extra cool is its versatility. If comic books aren’t your thing, you can really use any paper from your stash that you like, and you can make your stencil into whatever shape fits your surface.
