Whimsical Felt Ornaments

Monday, December 22, 2014

The best part of the holidays besides giving gifts is making holiday heirlooms for the Christmas tree.  Every year I get excited to create new ornaments for our tree.

Today I grabbed some inspiration from our DMC France Blog If you love creating with felt and threads, then you will love this whimsical holiday felt ornament project from DMC France.

2. Then assemble the felt pieces. Place the smaller brown felt piece onto the larger white felt piece.  Stitch eyes and nose onto the piece using the metallic pearl cotton thread, using a cross stitch. (see step 2)

3. With metallic pearl cotton thread, embroider edging around the white felt piece using a close whip stitch. (see steps 3 & 4)

4. Fill in the details of the antlers with more metallic pearl cotton thread using a back stitch. (see steps 5-8)

5. Add a tassel made from the remaining metallic pearl cotton to the bottom center of the felt ornament.
