It’s almost my favorite time of the year. I love decorating our Christmas tree with homemade ornaments. Ours is filled with ones that our children have made, ones that I have made over the years and ones that were made from felt by my husband’s grandmother.
Felt ornaments can be fun and easy. This Gnome ornament sure was!
Skill Level: Beginner
Completion Time: 1 hour
9”x12” Kunin Classic Felt: Pirate Green (1), Red (1), Sandstone (1)
5”x5” inch of a 45” x 10 yard bolt of Kunin Plush Felt
Gnome Christmas Ornament Pattern found here: Gnome Christmas Ornament
Hot Glue Gun
PomPom for the nose
Green Embroidery Floss
Small brads for the eyes
How it’s made:
Cut out the pieces of the pattern. Pin the paper pieces to the felt and cut them out.
Place the two Pirate Green body pieces together and stitch them together using a basic whipstitch. TIP: I started at one of the bottom corner, worked my way up and left the bottom open for stuffing.
Stuff the body to the thickness of your liking. Stitch to close.
Using the hot glue gun, attach the hat first aligning it with the body. Then attach the face flush against the bottom of the hat. Next attach the beard. TIP: I only glued the beard down around the face so that the bottom of his beard was loose.
Hot glue the nose in place. Cut the sticks from the brads and glue them in place.
With a small piece of embroidery floss and needle, create a loop so that you can hang your ornament.
Now he’s ready to hang on the Christmas tree!!
Have fun decorating your tree and Happy Holidays!
