  11. Cut out small pieces of coordinating felt and lengths of wire. Glue the felt to the doll with the wire in-between. I also used embroidery floss to add extra strength.

  13. For the heart, cut out two hearts and cut one in half up the middle. Use floss to stitch it back together, then sew the two hearts together around the edges. Stuff it with polyfil before sewing it all the way up. Attach wire to the back in the same way as the dolls.

  19. Make Felt Strip Flowers. Glue them into clusters, if you like. You can either glue them directly onto the wreath or attach them with wire like the other items.
