DIY Holly Felt Christmas Ornaments
- felt in gray & red
- embroidery floss in white & green
- sewing thread
- dressmaker’s marking pencil
Cut Felt Ornament
Make a paper pattern for the felt ornaments. Then using the paper pattern cut two felt ornaments out of the gray felt. You need two layers of felt per ornament so that the wrong side looks pretty too and to stiffen the ornaments.
Make Felt Holly Leaves
Draw three small holly leaves on a piece of felt with a dressmaker’s marking pencil. Then cut off a piece of green embroidery floss and fill the felt holly leaves with two rows of satin stitches.
Now cut out the felt holly leaves: Be careful not to cut the stitches. This type of embroidery is called stumpwork or raised embroidery. Stitch one side of the stumpwork holly leaves to one of the gray felt ornaments with two or three stitches.

Instead of the stumpwork holly leaves, you can simply cut three holly leaves out of green felt.
Make Felt Holly Berries
Cut three small circles out of red felt. By the way, the circles don’t have to be perfectly circular.
Sew running stitches around the circle. In the photo, I used white thread so that you can see the stitches. But better use red sewing thread for your felt holly berries. Then draw the thread tight to gather the felt circle into a berry.
Sew the bottom of the felt holly berries together with overhand stitches. And sew the felt holly berries to the gray felt ornament with the holly leaves.
