Making Felt Holly Ornaments
These colorful holly leaves are sure to brighten up your tree this year.
- cardboard (food packaging)
- embroidery floss
- Fold the cardboard in half and draw half of the holly leaf along the folded edge to create a symmetrical shape. Make a second leaf that is slightly smaller. Also draw a cluster of berries. Cut out the templates.
- Use rolls of tape to hold the templates to the felt. Stitch the smaller leaf to the larger one using a backstitch down the middle. Attach the berries using red embroidery floss. You can add dimension to the berries by stitching the shapes of the berries in the middle.
- If you want to use these as traditional ornaments you will need to attach a loop of ribbon to the top for hanging them. Have fun!
