Handmade Felt Christmas Ornaments

Felt Christmas ornaments

One of the things I made for Christmas was a collection of felt ornaments for my sister-in-law. After making the castle* and the kitchen I found myself loving making things of felt, and ornaments were the natural progression. I ended up giving her 7 ornaments, as shown, except the lights were "strung" on floral wire.

The nativity scene and the lights are both from free ornament tutorials at Wild Olive, which I highly recommend for this sort of thing. She did an entire month of ornaments, I wish I'd done them all.

Another ornament I found (just after Christmas, of course) was this adorable baby's first Christmas one. So I made one for a friend, who had her first baby just a week before Christmas. It's hard to tell, but it's about 4.5" tall from the top of the hanger to the bottom.

I see many of these in my future. I'm also trying to think of some variations on it so I don't feel quite so much like a copycat.

Then last night I found this one, and know someone who really needs one.

(note, I didn't make this one. yet.)

I found myself starting an entire board on Pinterest, just for felt. Once I'm done with ornaments, I'm thinking I'll make some play food. And I'm sure someone else will show up before I'm done with that.

*Pictures soon, I swear.
