DIY Felt Christmas ornaments are a perfect example of creating amazing decor and spending time together as a family. They are not only fun to make, but they are also cheap and easy to maintain. In this blog post, we will walk you through the process step by step, so you can create your special DIY Felt Christmas ornaments to hang on your tree.
Selecting your supplies:
You will require a few supplies to get the project going. You will need felt, scissors, glue, and thread. Additionally, you can decide to add sequins, cotton, embroidery floss to make the ornaments extra special. These supplies can be found at your local craft store.
Choosing a pattern:
There are numerous patterns to pick from when deciding on what to make. For example, you can go for penguins, snowmen, candy canes, or even stars. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can attempt to make Rudolph, elves or a gingerbread house. Look through Pinterest or other sites for ideas if you are undecided on what you want to make.
Cutting out the Felt:
After selecting your desired pattern and collecting your materials, the next step is to draw them on the felt using a marker or a pen. Cut the shapes according to the outline on the felt. Cut out any additional pieces that you may want to decorate the ornaments.
After cutting out your shapes, it’s time to assemble your ornaments. Use different colors of felt to design the decorations on the front part of your ornament. If you have pieces that need to be glued, use the fabric glue and wait for it to dry. Once the glue is dry, turn the ornament over and sew the pieces together.
Decorating your ornaments:
Time to add a personal touch! Use craft materials such as sequins, beads, fabric paint, ribbons to bring your decorations to life. For example, use a red fabric paint to make Rudolph’s nose shiny!
