Unique Easy To Make Handmade Felt Christmas Ornaments

Cute Upcycled Monochrome Handmade Felt Christmas Ornaments

I got the idea for these monochrome handmade felt Christmas ornaments when I made my monochrome shoe box craft. The monochrome childlike cartoon look of the boxes really apealed to me.
I thought it would be fun to recreate this look with some monochrome felt Christmas decoration. Recently when in one of my favourite shops Liberty’s of London I noticed that they had a monochrome Christmas display which I thought looked fantastic.

As with most of my crafts and DIY’s these handmade felt Christmas ornaments are made from repurposed things around me. I used an old felted white sweater to make them. Also, this is one of those crafts that can be done whilst indulging in a Netflix boxset. I stitched all the felt baubles in one evening whilst binging on the brilliant comedy series Atypical.

What you need to make handmade Felt Christmas Ornaments


How to make handmade felt Christmas ornaments

  1. Place the tuna can onto the felt and draw around it. Draw in a bauble cap and hook hoop to the top of the drawn circle.

  3. Cut out these white bauble shapes. You will need 2 for each handmade felt Christmas ornament.

  5. Decide on the design for your bauble. I’ve scanned in my designs which you can download here. Using a needle and black thread, I copied my chosen design. I just used a simple backstitch. Don’t worry if your not a fabulous seamstress, the apeal of these felt baubles is the child like nature of their designs.

  7. It took me about 20-30mins to stitch each felt bauble.

  9. To finish off these handmade felt Christmas ornaments, I glued a blank felt bauble to the back of each handstitched one. This hid all the unsightly stitching at the back of the ornament.
    Then using a hole punch I punched a hole in the top of each felt bauble. Through the hole I threaded a red statin cord to hang them with.

I like to hang these handmade felt Christmas ornaments altogether from a branch as a standalone Christmas decoration for the wall. But I might hang them from the wire rustic Christmas tree I made. I just need to make a few more for that. That’s Ok though as I have another season of “Atypical” to get through.

But I also love your fun designs that look like little sketches on purpose! So cute! 🙂 Lisa
