Christmas Decorations

I embroidered the top layer on an old piece of stiff white cotton and sewed it onto a piece of red felt, popped another piece of felt onto the back sewed them together (filling it with stuffing) and tada:

These are just circles of material (traced from the metal circle from a jam jar lid) with white felt on the back. I had a few scraps (far right) and decided to make a mish mash of patterns:
