The Cutest Ornaments

handmade felt Christmas ornaments, heart, tree

We spent Christmas at my parents’.

It was amazing!

There was snow. There was delicious food. There was laughter.

And there was eggnog.

Loads of it.


Precious, sweet eggnog, don’t you ever leave my life!


Thank you.

Anyway, somewhere between my third and seventeenth glass, I noticed this cute heart.

It was love at first sight.

What a gorgeous craft project, I thought.

My mom explained to me that the heart had been made by a dear friend of hers who is immensely crafty.

She’s made the heart and she’s also made this Christmas tree for my Mom.

Isn’t it just cute?

When I think about it, making ornaments like these should be really easy. What we have here are just two exactly same pieces of felt fabric that are adorned with beads and colorful patches. They are then stuffed and sewn together by hand.

Easy and lovely.
Now my head is full of felt projects. I plan to make felt Easter eggs and spring flowers and summer flowers and teddy bears and bugs and animals and funny creatures and fall fruit and snowmen and winter ornaments.


Can’t wait to start.

    To think I’ve never actually had eggnog before… from the sounds of it, that’s going to have to change soon! And those ornaments are ABSOLUTELY adorable! Felt projects definitely bring me back to childhood 😀

    Those ornaments are so cute! They would be prefect for our Christmas tree, too, because we’ve had kittens over the last two Christmases and they keep playing with the trees and knocking ornaments off. This year we had to use mostly unbreakable ornaments and these would really be a great addition to our collection!

    Thanks for sharing!

    You have inspired me with these ornaments. I think I would do them next year in my Art and Craft club. Nice and easy.
