Red Felt Christmas Tree Ornaments

Here is the second ornament that we made. We got the idea from Kristy who got the idea from Zakka LIfe.

They were so easy and fun to make. We made them from 3-inch and 4-inch felt circles. Cut out six circles from whichever size you choose. Then stack the circles one on top of the other, fold a 3-inch strip of ribbon in half and place it between the layers at the top. Sew a straight line through the center of the layers, and it will catch the ribbon and hold it in place. Then pull two semicircles together and sew a stitch in the center. Pull up another one and put in a stitch, one on each side, stitching it to the last semicircle that you had completed. Then pull up another and stitch in the center, Continue with this pattern (one center stitch, two top and bottom stitches) until you've created a sphere and every circle flap is attached to each other. It's that simple. You could add beads with each stitch. We did that for one, but we actually preferred the look of them without the beads. In the last picture, we put both the Twinkle Pom ornaments and the red felt ornaments on the tree together. I Love them. They look so pretty in our living room. What do you think? Do you think you'll be making some ornaments this year? I'd love to know what things you are making for Christmas.


  1. Hi Trudy, I can't type long..burned my hand..but these are great! You could do two colors and spray w/adhesive and sprinkle glitter on them to make them sparkly..or glue christmas confetti. I like them. Daughter in law emailed and said she's making the pompoms.

  2. Oh those are so pretty! Your "tree" is looking so festive!

  3. How wonderful! What a great idea. These look very difficult to do until you show us how. I will have to show these to my grand daughters.
