Make a Felt Christmas Tree Ornament in Openwork

Felt and fleece are fun fabrics to use for Christmas ornaments because they do not fray, and they hold their shape. We often make felt ornaments like snowflakes as they are easy and are a great crafts project to involve the kids. Felt and fleece are still economical, too.

This design is our own, and you can make it large and use it for a wall hanging, or make it small and use it on the tree. You are welcome to use it for any non-commercial purpose, since we like to share. A large piece can be backed with cardboard, and the kids can make small felt ornaments from scraps to put on the cardboard-backed felt tree.

Once you have the cut-out Christmas tree completed, you can put it on felt backing and then cardboard. That is what we have done in the picture here.

See you in a couple of days!
