How do I make DIY Felt Ornaments?

My felts came in a 5″ roll, so I measured and cut out a 5″x5″ square with my sewing scissors.  Having sharp scissors is key to having a clean straight cut.

Next, fold your felt square into a triangle and then fold it once more.  

DIY Felt Ornament Steps1-2

Cut three straight lines in your felt, starting at the bended side of the triangle.  Do not cut all the way to the end.

Unfold your felt and lay out on a table.  Grab the center corner pieces and using your hot glue gun, adhere the center corner edges together.

Turn your felt over so the loop you just glued is now facing down.  Now, grab the second set of corner pieces and glue the corner edges together.  Turn the felt over again and repeat this process until all the corners are glued together.

For the green set, I followed the exact same steps but stacked the emerald and mint greens on each other.  This creates the dual color look.

Once the felt ornaments were completed, I added a simple neon pink loop to hang.

And then also the pink ornament recieved a lovely pink tassel.

I’m not kidding when I say that I may make a LOT more of these… they take no time at all and I love how they spin and create shapes when on the tree!  

I did make more and put them on a DIY garland!

    1. Thanks, Cyd! I know, I always forget about felt… but I just found a great source, so I’ve got a week of felt DIY’s now!

  1. I LOVE these! I’ve got Paper Ornament Week coming up next week and I may or may not steal this design. (with proper attribution, of course!)

    Hope you are having a fantastic December!

    1. Steal away (with credit, hee hee) because I’m so in love I want to make them in every color! And I bet using paper would only be THAT MUCH easier!! Can’t wait to see them, Gwen.
