These little felt decorations are so easy to make. They only involve two embroidery stitches and some seed beads for sparkle! You can easily make one in an evening while watching TV or get your young folk involved while teaching them a new skill.
Inspired by cookie cutters, you can use felt as we have for these little Christmas tree ornaments or you can choose any other fabric that won’t ravel drastically. We all have fabric scraps that could be repurposed!
Choose the red and green colour scheme as photographed or make them in a colour palette that coordinates with your own decorating scheme. The embroidery designs which are stitched with reverse chain and fern stitch are simple enough that you can start designing your own decorations following this theme.
