Felt Circle Ornaments

Felt Circle Christmas Ornaments

Ready for another decorating tutorial?  I have this stack of old felt that's been sitting in my art room for a while and I finally thought of a good project for it... some soft and kid friendly ornaments!

Materials:
several different colors of felt fabric
embroidery thread
needle

Step 1:  Cut three sizes of circles out of felt.  Cut 2 large circles of one color, two medium of another color, and 2 small of another color.

Step 2:  Place a small circle on top of a medium circle.  Make sure it is centered and stitch the small circle to the medium using colored embroidery floss.  Fasten off.  Repeat with the other small and medium circles.

Step 3:  Stitch the medium circle to the large circle with another color of embroidery floss.  Fasten off and repeat with other set.


Step 4:  Make a hanging loop.


Step 5:  With wrong sides together, stitch the two large circles together using a whip stitch around the edge of the circles.

All finished!  Enjoy the fun colors and the decorating!
