Over 20 years ago, I started making tree ornaments each year for my family and friends, and it has become one of my favorite holiday traditions. Because I make so many, I try to keep the design simple. I also try to make ornaments that are flat and light so that they are easy to mail with Christmas cards. Here is the ornament I am making this year. (I like to start early because Christmas is such a hectic time!) This ornament is great for moms because it is made of felt and won’t break when the kids are running into the Christmas tree. lol It is also a great beginner project for older kids that want to learn to sew. Younger kids could make a no-sew version by gluing the pieces in place. Want to make one… or a bunch? Here’s what you do: 1) Cut out the felt pieces. You will need: 2 red circles, 1 green triangle, and 1 small brown rectangle. 2) Stitch the brown rectangle and green triangle onto one of the red circles. Sew a small yellow button onto the top of the tree. 3) Tie a piece of ribbon to form a “loop” and stitch to the other red circle. 4) Stitch the two red circles together. Isn’t it a sweet little project? Do you like making ornaments with your kids? I do. ♥ Gina (aka East Coast Mommy) PS (You can find another adorable felt ornament here.)
