Today it has become very popular to decorate the New Yearfir-tree somehow in a special way. Someone prefers a certain color scheme, someone chooses Christmas toys in the same style, and someone completely refuses the traditional tinsel and flickering flashlights in favor of the original handmade jewelry. Certainly, the Christmas tree, decorated with one of the original ways listed above, acquires its individuality and becomes part of the stylish festive New Year's interior. However, these jewelry costs are not cheap, and to decorate the New Year's beauty will have to pay a small amount. If this is not possible, do not be upset, original ornaments in the style of hand-made can be made by yourself, and everyone can cope with this task, you only need to have patience, free time and include all your unbridled imagination. Doubt that this is possible - it is not worth it, but rather try to make together with me the original decoration on the Christmas tree gingerbread house of felt and make sure that everything is extremely easy, accessible and simple.

- A simple pencil;
Description of work
1. Let's start with a sketch of the future toy. We draw it by hand on a piece of paper with a simple pencil. According to our idea, we should have a snow-covered house in drifts made of sweet sugar glaze. In the drawing, there should be no clear and correct lines "under the ruler", nothing if the house is a little out of proportion and with rounded edges, do not forget we will make a gingerbread house, and it looks exactly like that. 2. Next, cut the resulting sketch from the paper along the outline, and using it as a template, we transfer the outline of the house to brown felt, which we previously laid down in two layers. Then we cut out from the felt two absolutely identical parts. 3. Then cut out of the house all the individual parts that we need to be white - a roof, snowdrifts, a tree and a tree, and a window. We transfer the outlines of the details to the felt of white color and carefully cut out each. 4.Now we will make out the front part of the toy, start with the snow-covered roof, apply it to the main front part of the house and sew it with a needle with a thin white thread. We lay very small, as much as possible even and identical stitches of the seam "a needle forward". 5. After the roof we sew the lower part with snowdrifts and trees, pay attention to sew the part only on the inner edges, leaving the outer one untouched. We will lay the seam on them when we sew the front and back of the toy together. 6. Lastly, sew on the house window. 7. Here is a ready-made front part of the gingerbread house we got. 8. Next we take the back felt part of the house, we connect both of them along the contour and sew them along the outer edge of the whole toy, we also use the "needle forward" seam for this. Stitches make small and even. Do not staple leave only the bottom edge. 9. Through the remaining hole, we stuff the toy with synthetic filler and evenly distribute it inside, giving the house the correct volume shape. If you do not have such a filler under your hands, you can replace it with regular cotton wool or soft paper, for example, napkins or paper towels. After the toy is packed, sew the remaining lower part of the house, in the same way as the side. 10. The gingerbread house of felt is almost ready, it is necessary to supplement it with several details. eleven. To make it possible to hang our unusual toy on a twig of a Christmas tree, we need to make an eyelet for it, but to sew a regular loop of twine or thread, it would be very simple and boring, so I decided to make it from a satin ribbon. We take ribbons of two colors - red and green and we form from each small bow. Note, it is desirable that the ribbon bow of red color is slightly more green, and also it must necessarily have long edges. 12.We put a green bow on the red and sew both both at the center of the upper part of the roof of the house. From the long ends of the red ribbon we form a loop, for which we can hang our gingerbread house on the Christmas tree. Here's an original Christmas tree toy in stylehand-made - gingerbread house from felt we have turned out! In the kit to it you can make other figures - asterisks, hearts, small Christmas trees, etc., and then your New Year tree will be decorated in one fashionable modern style.
