Use the template which is available as a separate PDF file on this page and cut out two pieces of felt for each hanging decoration.
Embroider your chosen design with DMC metallic thread. Push the needle up from the back and through a sequins on the front. Thread a bead onto the thread and push the needle back through the sequins and onto the back.
Sew the front and the back felt parts together with buttonhole stitches once you have finished decorating the front. Leave a small opening and fill with polyester stuffing before closing it completely.
Mark the design with a pencil on the back and use it as a guide when embroidering the design, pushing the needle from the back onto the front.
Sew sequins and beads onto the front as shown in the photo.
Finish by sewing on a thread for hanging.
