DIY Felt Christmas Ornaments

Hi, glad to be back over here to show you how to make DIY Felt Christmas Ornaments! After my posts for Halloween and Thanksgiving, I’m up for another holiday that’s way more important in America than here in the Netherlands. I guess you already noticed that although I pretend to be a straightforward basic Dutch girl, I secretly love all holiday-related crafts…

Today I wanted to make some felt ornaments for Christmas. My initial idea was to create basic flat shapes. However, to make the project a bit more visually interesting I decided to add another dimension. Literally. This sounds very complex, however, it’s very, very simple. My 6 yo made a few herself and loved it. So please join me in this tutorial to create DIY Felt Christmas Ornaments!

Felt Ornaments Requirements

  • Felt. Of course. Not much of it though, just four circles with the desired diameter of the ornament.
  • Ribbon, about five inches.
  • Sequins. Optional, but the main part of the fun over here.
  • Glue to attach the sequins. If you’d like your ornaments to hold up for another year, don’t glue but sew them on…
  • Matching thread and a sewing machine.

Felt Ornaments Step 3: Stitch a straight line across the circles, catching the ribbon in your stitching. Don’t forget to secure your stitching on top and bottom by sewing back and forth a few stitches.

Felt Ornaments Step 6: Place the other two circles on the sides of your ornament. The first circles with the ribbon are sandwiched in between the second circles.

Felt Ornaments Step 7: Again, sew a straight line across the circles. This stitching should be on top of the seam you first sewed. Don’t forget to secure your stitching!
