I found a cute stacked wool felt Christmas tree ornament at a store a few years ago. When people see it, all my friends and family all assume I made it. Although I didn’t make that one, I have always intended to create a similar pattern. Today I’m sharing my version of the Stacked Wool Felt Christmas Tree Ornament.
Stacked Wool Felt Christmas Tree Ornament Materials
- Wool Felt in assorted Christmas colors
- Craft Glue (Aleene’s)
- Perle Cotton Embroidery Floss
- Wood Beads (11)
- Base Felt Circles Pattern
- Embroidery Needle
- Stapler/Packing Tape
Stacked Wool Felt Christmas Tree Ornament Directions to Prepare Felt Disks:
Begin by printing out a copy of the base felt circles pattern. We will be using circles A, C, E, G, and I.
Choose an assortment of Christmas colored wool felt sheets. To cut out the wool felt circles, fold over a piece of felt and staple the pattern circle in place. If you fold it you can cut out both felt circles at the same time. You can use packing tape to help hold the pattern piece in place. (Refer to our HOW to CUT OUT FELT guide for more tips).
If you would like your Stacked Wool Felt Christmas Tree Ornament to match ours, cut out:
- A: 2 felt circles Dark Green
- C: 2 felt circles deep red
- E: 2 felt circles medium green
- G: 2 felt circles red
- I: 2 felt circles light green and 2 felt circles gold
Carefully remove the staples. Use craft glue to glue the matching circles together. This will help give them more structure. Place them under a book until they dry. Do not glue your gold circles together yet.
You will now have 5 double thick felt disks.
Assembling the Stacked Wool Felt Christmas Tree Ornament Directions:
Cut a piece of perle cotton embroidery floss 18 inches long. Thread one bead onto the middle of the floss and tie in place. Double thread your needle so that you are using both ends at the same time.
Add two more beads. Then carefully add the largest felt circle by centering the needle in the middle of the felt disk.
Add two more beads, followed by the next largest felt circle.
Continue adding felt circles and beads until all the felt disks are in place. Fold over the extra thread and knot it so that you have a hanging loop. Try to make the knot as close to the last felt disk as possible.
Optional: Embroider a star design on the small gold felt circles.
Add glue to the back side of one of the gold felt disks. Center it under the loop knot. Align the second gold felt disk on top so that the two gold disks are glued together with the hanging loop in the middle. Trim off any excess threads.
You can now hang your Stacked Wool Felt Christmas Tree Ornament.
