1 piece of card stock
6 (4×4) felt squares
1 pair scissors
1 skein of embroidery floss
1 small threading needle
an assortment of craft flare (sequins, mini pom poms, colored beads..)
What to do:
Trace or freehand a fun shape onto card stock (I made a simple round scalloped shape, but you could do anything that has an exact center).
Next, us scissors to cut out.
Pro tip: The more complex the shape, the harder it is to cut out of fabric….trust me…make it simple!
Using a contrasting colored marker, trace your shape onto the felt, cut out and place aside. You’ll want to cut about 12-15 piece for one ornament.
Thread 12-15 inches of embroidery floss through your needle. Add some fun flair and knot off at one end.
Pro tip: You may need to make a few knots depending on the opening of your bottom flair!
Thread your needle though 3 to 5 felt shapes. Repeat steps 03 and 04 until satisfied.
