Handmade Felt Ornaments

Handmade Felt Ornaments


This year I wanted to try and craft the majority of my Christmas gifts.  I made felt ornaments for all of my cousins based on their interests.  




I am not a great drawer so I employed my favorite trick; holding a piece of paper up to my laptop to trace a silhouette of the shapes.  




I put a piece of cardboard (from a tissue box) into each ornament to make it more sturdy.  My mom (Thanks, Mom!) sewed the small beads onto this cupcake ornament.



This is my favorite ornament!  My cousin is a kicker on his high school football team and these are the school colors.   It was my mom's suggestion to put the oval behind the silhouette.



I used embroidery floss and sewed the lines between the keys.




A dancer ornament for my cousin who is on her college's dance team.

These were fun to make and inexpensive.  Perfect for my holiday budget this year.  


Finally a tardis ornament from Doctor Who that I made for my brother-in-law and he loved it!
