diy llama ornament One of the best ways to create with felt is making felt Christmas ornaments.

Every year I make ornaments for friends and family that reflect aspects of their lives or personalities. This drama llama and her mama was created for a dear friend who is raising an amazing free spirited little diva. Mama llama looks serene even dealing with the antics of little llama who is dressed to impress.

Starting early is key to insuring you have time to create something special and unique for everyone you love. This llama ornament has a blank back side that can be used to add names or the year.
