3 template options:
There are 3 designs on page 10: bauble (finial), drop, and ball ornament. I've added a few small circles for your convenience, but don't let these limit you - you can totally design your own versions too, I'll show you how.
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 1
Decide on the form of the ornament you want to make: select the bauble (finial), ball, or the drop ornament. All are on page 10 in the PDF file. Decide on the size, but you can also mix and match sizes for different layers.
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 2
Cut caps, 2 per each ornament you want to make.
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 3
- Cut out a few pieces of the design you chose (min 2)
- Cut small circles from felt to use as embellishment and accents.
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 4
Feel free to trim a piece or two, you can add it to the base layer and you'll have an accent layer. So pretty! Here's how I just trimmed a bit off my white felt layer using my rotary cutter:
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 6
Time to select and arrange your pieces to form an ornament. Wonder tape is of great help here! This is how you'll easily attach the layers temporarily:
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 7
Stitch the upper (circle) layers to the base layer. Best you do the front and the back separately:
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 8
Place the front and the back sides together and sew along one outer edge:
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 9
Add the cap and the hanging ribbon. The cap will help you make the ends neat. Use double-sided fabric tape again, add just bits of it to both caps to attach the ribbon. Once you place the caps on each side, stitch them in place, catching the ribbon too.
Diy Felt Ornament - Step 10
Attach the tassel, beads, or pompom:
Done and ready for holiday home decorating!
