Felt Scrap Christmas Tree Ornaments
These ornaments are made with the same technique that I used for the Felt Scrap Bowl Tutorial . This was much quicker though because these are only about 3″ x 6″. I had the scraps left over from a prior project and I didn’t change the shape of the scraps at all. I just placed them so they looked like branches. I did cut the trunk pieces out of left over brown felt.
I then sandwiched the scraps in two pieces of water-soluble stabilizer and free motion stitched with dark green thread.
Here’s one of the trees after the stabilizer was dissolved.
I was just going to glue the sequins on the trees as it would be faster. I tried one but the sequins were already falling off and I really didn’t like how it looked.
So I ended up sewing on the sequins with a bead to hold it in place.
I finished two trees. I did add a loop of ribbon to the top so they can be hung. It was fairly quick for one of my “last-minute Christmas projects”. I always vow I won’t make anything this Christmas but I never seem to keep that promise.
Happy Holidays to everyone and thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea. I will have to give that a go before next Christmas.
I was wondering what type of stabilizer you used, love the idea and something I can try this year.
I really need to use my machine more and figure out all the features. I do have some water soluble, but was wondering if there was one that was best to use.
Christmas wishes to you and your family.
These look great Ruth! 🙂
Thanks everyone! I think the brand of stabilizer is Solvy but most any kind will work. You just need to use a heavier one for thicker things like felt.
Excellent tutorial! It’s a nice way to try new techniques on a small piece. I have some solvy & am looking forward to giving this a try!
Thanks Sherry! I hope you’ll post your piece on Flickr so we can all see it.
They look gorgeous ruth, i’ll be making them for next years decorations 🙂
Good idea! Am going to try this technique. Looks like fun. Thanks Ruth
It’s a fun and easy technique and you can make almost anything. Have fun!
