Directions for these Felt Ornaments

To start making these ornaments, first click on the template above and print it out.

Then follow the rest of the instructions.

1. Cut out the pieces

Double layer your felt and carefully cut out your ornaments using the stencil.

We used a pretty gray felt that makes all the white pearl beads just pop!

But you could use any color you like.

2. Add the Accents

On one side of your ornament start attaching your small white accent beads using small stitches with a similar color thread.

Our beads where almost like tiny little pearls.

This will be the front panel of your felt ornaments. 

3. Sew the Two Pieces Together

Next, start sewing your two pieces together using the blanket stitch.

If you don’t know how to use this type of stitch, here’s a great tutorial from Tammy Hallam.

4. Continue Stitching But Leave an Opening

Before sewing both pieces together completely, leaving about 1 inch open, to add a small amount of stuffing.

You can use batting if you have extra handy, a couple of cotton balls pulled apart, or even a small plastic bag crumpled up will work too.

5. Finish Stitching

Now finish stitching up your cute little ornament and tie off with a strong double stitch and a knot.

6. String and Hang!

Finally, attach your cord to your felt ornament.

You can either stitch it in with your need and thread or string it through the top of your ornament with a larger needle.

Hang on your Christmas tree, give to a friend or sell at a craft fair!

Enjoy your cute new felt Christmas ornaments!
