Sweet Felt Winter Ornaments

It is time for another ornament.

These are fun because they are perfect for now with Valentine's Day coming up or you can use them later.

You need:

two pieces of felt

Embroidery floss or crochet thread

a needle

 and some poly-fil stuffing

a hot glue gun and glue sticks

Cut out two shapes that are the same for the front and the back.

I used circles and hearts.

Blanket stitch them together but before you finish them, add a bit of stuffing.

Then stitch closed.

To make the rose, use one piece of felt.

I use a sheet purchased at the craft store.

Round off the corners with scissors.

Then make a very huge spiral by cutting the felt and staying about 3/4 inch away from the edge.

Continue to go around and around until you get to the center.

I like to make my lines a little wavy to add more interest to the flower petals.

Once done, start in the center of the felt and begin to roll it.
Continue to hold and roll it.

  You can add a drop of hot glue every so often if you wish.

Keep rolling until you have used all the felt. 

Glue the end firmly in place.

Then just glue the rose to the front of the ornament.

For the hanging loop, I just use the needle to add a piece of thread through the top of the ornament and tie it in a loop.

You can do any color combination that appeals to you.

Thanks for stopping by...
