Felt Christmas Ornaments

felt christmas ornaments These felt Christmas ornaments are so much fun to make. Use the templates we supply or make them from your own designs and templates. Either way, felt Christmas ornaments will give your holidays a very special and personal touch.

Materials

  • felt (white, black, red, green, orange, yellow)
  • quilter's polyester batting
  • gold cord (8" long for each ornament)
  • thread (white, black, red)
  • sewing needle
  • Elmer's glue

Instructions

Start with templates for the stocking with candycanes, christmas tree, snowman, print and cut out all the parts.

Stocking with Candycanes

Using the template parts, cut out all the felt parts. Cut batting for both the stocking and the candycanes, making the piece slightly smaller than the original pieces (this allows for stitching all the way around the edges).

Following the pattern, sew the stripes on the candycanes.

Position the stocking cuff batting and stocking cuff over the other two pieces and stitch all the way around with red thread.
