Oh, hooray, it’s Christmas time again…let the crafting commence!
No, we don’t have our tree yet, thanks for asking, but I’m not going to let that stop me! I have the tiny tree plugged in and these little ornaments have a temporary home until the big tree arrives!
We’ve been making ornaments like crazy over here, and this one might be my favorite, although I was partial to the birdies as well. I had some felt left from the wreath I made and I also had a lot of loose buttons, so I made up a few little felt ornaments for the tree. (Which we don’t have yet, as I mentioned. Tomorrow I hope!)
You will need:
-some sort of stuffing (I used cotton balls)
Step 1: Cut out two hearts.
Step 2: Sew a button on one heart.
Step 3: Sew the hearts together with a simple stitch. At the top, stick the ribbon in and keep stitching to secure.
Step 4: When you get about ⅔ of the way done, stuff with cotton balls.
Step 5: Keep stitching the rest of the way around. When you get to the end, tie a little knot and conceal it.
Step 6: Hang on the tree!
For the tree, I cut two triangles and used five colorful buttons. I’m trying to think of other shapes to do…maybe a snowman or a stocking? Any suggestions?

I just made my first felt ornament a couple of weeks ago…it was a mitten with my daughter’s initial embroidered! Thanks for the cute ideas…these would make great starter projects for a beginner like me ;)
I love this! So cute and endearing! I would suggest a gingerbread man!
Really cute ornaments. I love the feeling.
What fun project! I’ll have to make some with my son. thanks for sharing, visiting from Tatertots and Jello!
The simplicity and elegance of these little felt ornaments is very appealing! They’re just SO warm and cute!
I’d love a tree full of these little cuties!
Super Cute! My daughter would love these.
I love these, they’re so beautiful! Happy holidays :)
This is so adorable!
You lost me at “sew a button on”, but they are darling. Maybe you could do a wreath, and sew the inner and outer circles? That would be cute too with a few buttons on it.
Haha..my word verification is “chiggere”. Where do they come up with these? :)
Oh, I love felt ornaments! Great idea to add the buttons! So perfect. Thanks for sharing!!
