Total Time: 1-3 hours

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Start by tracing a gingerbread cookie cutter onto the brown felt. You will need two for each ornament. Cut them out.
  2. trace cookie cutter
     
    cut out gingerbread men
     
  3. Next, stitch the two pieces together with embroidery floss using a back stitch. Go around the entire outside.

  5. Next, stitch the mouth onto the gingerbread man.
  6. stitch on mouth
     
  7. Cut pieces of rick rack to decorate the gingerbread man with. I chose to do hair and the edges of a shirt and pants. For the gingerbread woman I did more of a dress design. NOTE: I recommend melting the edges of the rick rack with a lighter to prevent unraveling.
