Helpful Tips

To help you create perfect felt ornaments, here are a few tips:

  1. Use a pencil or knitting needle to push the stuffing into small areas of the ornaments.
  2. If you're worried about the pattern piece moving as you cut through the felt, pin it to the felt or trace it with a gel pen or chalk.
  3. Looking for more Christmas ornament shapes? Check out our Christmas tree templates and star templates!

What do you stuff felt ornaments with?

For our felt Christmas ornaments, we used poly-fill, a polyester stuffing. However, you don't have to buy special stuffing. You can use the stuffing from an old pillow lying around the house or from an inexpensive pillow from the dollar store. Alternatively, you can use stuffing from an old teddy bear or even cotton balls or bits of scrap fabric. Just ensure that the fabric is cut small to avoid a bumpy appearance.

Do I have to sew these felt ornaments?

If sewing isn't your thing, don't worry! You can use hot glue or fabric glue to stick the pieces of felt together instead. Check out our felt dragon post for more instructions on how to do this.

What type of felt is used to make felt Christmas ornaments?

To keep the cost down and make a lot of ornaments, we used inexpensive soft craft felt. However, cheaper felt may pill if touched or played with often. If you plan on giving these ornaments as a gift or want them to last for decades, consider using wool felt. It's more expensive, but it will hold up better over time.

What else do I need to decorate my felt ornaments?

The stocking in our step-by-step tutorial is made only of felt and thread. However, a few of our other ornaments have non-felt accessories that you might want to add. The snowman and reindeer, for example, have 6mm black bead eyes, and the Christmas tree has 7mm rhinestones glued to it for a nice sparkle. Feel free to get creative and add pom poms, sew on sequins, or embroider snowflakes or other shapes onto the ornaments. The stocking and mitten would look especially cute with a faux poinsettia or holly branch glued to them.
