"Cowboy Christmas Boots"

My family loves cowboy boots. They are almost a necessity here and most people wear them everywhere in our rural area (even to weddings!) Lots of cowboy boots in our home’s entryway are a welcome sight, because it means we have lots of friends and family visiting. At Christmas, there are quite a lot of boots! I decided to create a cowboy boot ornament this year for this reason.

The material list:

Felt in the color of choice, lace string or other items to embellish, scissors, paper and pen for a pattern, embroidery thread, and fabric glue.

I found a boot pattern on the internet that I liked the shape of, and printed it out. I made two felt cut-outs of the boot and glued them together with fabric glue, and also glued on a different color felt sole.

The lace string was added by pinning it in place and then using fabric glue to hold it. I added a hanger with embroidery thread and then free-cut a few ivy and some holly to cover where the hanger was added, and to add a little extra Christmas cheer to the ornament.

My 11 year old son was very excited to help me and he designed the lace on the boot’s side to match his own boots!
