Hey mamas! I’m back today with another simple and fun ornament idea, and yep – you guessed it! It uses felt! If it wasn’t already obvious, I’m really loving felt lately. It’s so easy to work with, it’s super cheap, and the color options are endless!
These sweet little felt angels are so adorable and a joy to create!
Ok, now on to the DIY….
Felt Angel Ornament Craft
What you need to get started
Angel body and wings template
Felt (various colors)
Creating your felt angel ornaments
Step one is to download and print the angel body and wing template. Choose one color of felt for the body and another for the wings. Then trace the patterns onto the freezer paper, iron it to your felt pieces, and simply cut along the lines!
If you want to add a little “pizazz” to your angel, now is the time! I cut out little scraps of coordinating felt and secured them with fabric glue. You could also use sequins, ribbon, pom poms, etc…
Now you’ll add a line of fabric glue (or hot glue if that’s what you have on hand) to one edge of the angel body before rolling it up and securing the other edge on top.
Once that glue has dried, glue your heart piece (angel wings) over the seam.
Now it’s time to get the rest of your angel assembled. Cut a length of ribbon and string it through the top of the bell. Then thread the ribbon and bell through the bottom of the angel body so that the bell is hidden inside.
Now add your wooden bead to the top before tying the ribbon in a loop for hanging on the tree!
Here’s a good visual of the assembly deconstructed a bit…
Time to Deck the Halls
It’s as easy as that folks! Grab a few of your favorite colors of felt and let your imagination run wild! Let me know if you and your kiddos give these sweet little angels a try! I hope it’s a fun addition to an already amazing holiday season :)
