“On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me….A Partridge in a Pear Tree”. I think we can all agree that we love the classic Christmas tune, The Twelve Days of Christmas and this felt, Partridge in a Pear Tree Ornament is a fun way to bring the song to your tree décor.
As some long-time fans of Kunin Felt know, I create felt ornaments for my daughter, nieces, and nephew every year and this is the latest edition. (Check-out the Ugly Christmas Sweater Ornaments I made for them a few years ago.)
I stitched my ornaments (because you know I love to hand stitch!) but they will look just fine if you choose to glue them together instead.
