Felt DIY Ornaments for Kids from Starts At Eight. Stock up on various colors of felt and make some of these Felt DIY Christmas Ornaments for Kids! Trees, snow globes, angels, candy canes, bulbs and more!

We created one of these super fun ornaments ourselves (we still have the supplies for another but haven’t made it yet). Beyond that I have scoured the web to bring you some great felt DIY Christmas ornaments to try once you have your supply of felt in hand!

Directions:

  1. Use a piece of card stock to draw a pattern for the bulb part of the ornament and a pattern for the gold top part.img_0136a
  2. Trace out two of each shape per ornament. (So you need to colored bulb parts and 2 gold top parts for each ornament)
  3. Cut out and lay together your shapes.
  4. Sew your two colored bulb pieces together, stopping just before you sew it shut.
  5. Stuff the bulb with fiber fill.img_0145a
  6. Place the gold tops on, holding it all together, begin by stitching a stitch to hold the bottom corner of the gold pieces to the colored bulb.
  7. Continuing sewing around the gold top piece – inserting your colored ribbon at the top to create the hanger.
  8. You are finished sewing when you have gone all the way around the gold top.
