I LOVE everything about Christmas, but my favorite part is making Christmas ornaments with my kids. I actually came up with these cute ornaments when Miss G was 2. I made a whole bunch of them for our playgroup to decorate. Now I make sure to have some around for the kids to decorate every year. I just made a bunch for Miss G’s kindergarten class to decorate.
I was very excited when Deanna from SewMcCool put together this blog challenge to celebrate her one year anniversary. I have really enjoyed seeing what everyone has come up with.
Felt (You can get about 4 ornaments out of each sheet)
Ribbon (Cut into 7 inch strips for ornaments or the length of your desired garland)
Thread or Glue
Supplies to decorate (Glitter Glue is a favorite for us.)
Tree & Mitten Template, Download HERE
- Cut out your tree and mitten shapes from the felt. You will need 2 mirror images for each ornament. If you are making ornaments cut out 7” length of ribbon for each ornament.
- For ornament, fold ribbon in ½ and sandwich between top of ornament and pin
3. For garland, sandwich ribbon between felt shapes along top of shapes and pin. Alternate shapes to create desired pattern. Add a loop of ribbon on each ending shape to hang garland.
5. Decorate and Enjoy!
