Cut round the dots and mark out the boot pattern on the red felt folded in 2, the snowflake patterns on the white felt and the tree patterns on the green felt with a light trace of felt pen.
Cut out the pieces of the boot with a 1 cm margin and the snowflake pieces with no margin, then rub out the traces of felt pen with a damp cloth.
Stitch the snowflakes and Christmas trees onto one side of the boot with the thread. Place the two sides of the boot against one another, stitch 1 cm from the edge then turn inside out.
Stitch the wool on the edge of the boot spacing the stitches. Stitch the ribbon or lace to the edge of the boot as a decoration.
Stitch 2 x 25 cm of ribbon to the back of the boot to make a loop to hang it up.
And to finish your Christmas decoration, have fun making your own little pine cone pixie using our tutorial!
