Materials:

  • 12” X 9" piece of red felt.  Embossed felt in Alligator red gives it a brick like look.  (One square makes three pockets so purchase enough for your needs)
  • 12” X 9" piece of white glitter stiffened felt.  You can use regular felt but the stiffened felt makes a sturdier pocket.  (One square will make four)
  • Tacky glue
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Clothespins to hold the pocket tight while the glue sets
  • Die cut snowflake felt shapes
  • Scrap cardboard for pattern

 

Instructions:

  1. As always protect your work surface with newspaper or craft paper.
     
  2. Fold the red felt in half lengthwise.  Measure 4 inches across, and cut.  Repeat twice.  You will have three folded pieces of felt.

  3. Open the folded piece and run a bead of glue down each side.  Refold to adhere.  You will have a pocket made.  Repeat with the other two pieces.  Let dry.

  4. To make the snow on the edge of the chimney make a pattern from a piece of cardboard.  (Cereal boxes are perfect for this use) Cut a piece of cardboard    5” x 2.”  Round the corners.  Draw a wavy line on one edge and cut out.  It does not have to perfect, because it is representing snow piled on to the rim of the chimney.  Once you have your pattern, place it on the stiffened glitter white felt, trace and cut out.  Turn over and trace another, piece.  Laid together, the pieces should match up.

  5. It is easiest to glue each side separately.  Spread some tacky glue onto the back of one of the pieces of white felt you just cut out.  Attach to the front of the chimney pocket.  Repeat for the back with the other piece of white cut out making sure you glue each overhang side.  Use a clothespin to hold it tight till the glue sets.  Let it dry.
     
  6. Attach some snowflake felt die cut shapes as desired.  Die cut felt shapes are available in craft stores or online.

Easy and cute! How does it get any better than this idea? You can make one for every place setting for just pennies each. I love the options for making them because you can personalize them and change out the colors to match your party scheme with no issues at all.

Like a lot of people I am a Christmas nut! I love all that is Christmas and all that Christmas brings, needless to say I am devastated when it's over but I just start planning for the next like any fan) I will be hosting my very first Christmas dinner this year...eek!! Burnt turkey for all! But I love the the cutlery holder, I am definitely making them for my table)

This is a very cute idea. And a very inexpensive one. My grand daughter will love helping me with it also. We can even add names so I really all the family member names of each one to it. This is going to be a yearly project. Thank you for sharing this and inspiring me

When has 12 x 9 become a square? It is a rectangle The project is cute regardless of the error in terminology.

Thanks for pointing this out - the project has now been updated! - Julia from FaveCrafts
