Easy Felt Ornaments

For years I made everyone in my family a Christmas ornament each year. 

I finally gave myself permission not to make everyone an ornament. 
I also gave myself permission to stop sending dozens of holiday cards. 
Eliminating both of these made the holidays a little less stressful and hurried. 

I still enjoy making ornaments so I'm sharing the third craft in my 12 Crafts of Christmas series. 


 A felt ornament is super easy to make. 


You will need felt, embroidery floss and needles. 


Cut out the felt in your desired design. 


Pull a template up on your smart phone and trace the design onto paper.


Cut out the pattern to trace onto felt.


Add embroidery or trim of some kind.


Finish the edge with a blanket stitch. 



There are tons of embroidery tutorials on YouTube.



These have a Nordic style to them.
I adore Nordic style. 



Thanks for stopping by to see my third craft of the season. 
See you soon.

  7. That could have been me you were writing about! Homemade ornaments for everyone each year - check. Photo cards each year to a long list of people - check! Then it began to be a burden and I had to give myself permission too. funny how we do that, huh?

    I absolutely adore felt and that's what many of my ornaments were made of. I love your little mittens and thought they were my favorite until I saw that cute little white heart! These are so cute and festive. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous ornaments with us!
