Felt ornaments looks so cozy on the Christmas tree and adds a homespun feel for the holidays.  I’ve been having fun using felt to make Christmas ornaments.  The poinsettia mug ornaments I shared a few days ago were made on a flat felt surface.  For today’s ornament I created a soft fiber filled pillow background for my winter cabin scene.

For my project I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Snow Globe Set, Cabin Set, Evergreen Trees, Deckle Hills, Small Birds, Tiny Leaves and the star from the Globe Tree Set..

The Die Cut Felt Parts

  • Cut two white circle sections and a white deckle hill section. Use the circle die to cut the deckle hill section.
  • Use gray and white felt to cut the cabin sections and attach them together using Crafter’s Pick tacky glue.
  • Cut one set of evergreen trees and tiny leaves using green felt.
  • Punch out 1/8″ circles and cut small birds using red felt.
  • Use yellow felt to cut the tiny star.

Create the Scene

  • Apply tacky glue to the back of the trees and attach to the front white felt circle.
  • Use tacky glue to attach the cabin to the trees and the circle base.
  • Attach the tiny green leaves, red circle, red birds and yellow star to the scene using tacky glue.
  • Secure the two round felt circles and the snow layer together using straight pins.
  • Thread an embroidery needle with white embroidery floss and sew the pieces together using an overcast whip stitch and leave a small section open to use to add fiber fill.  Note:  Check out this American Felt and Craft link to see several different stitch options.  Please don’t  take a close look at my stitching.  My needle point was not sharp enough and made it difficult for me to get through the felt to create even stitches. 
  • Insert fiber fill to the inside of the white circles to create a soft pillow appearance and then compete stitching to close the opening.
  • Create the thread hanger by inserting the needle in between the top layers, pulling the thread up through , create the loop and secure with a couple french knots.
