Felt Poinsettia Christmas Ornament

If you’ve been here around the holidays, then you’ll know I have a small obsession with making Christmas ornaments.  Felt has to be one of my favorite crafting mediums, so I made this pretty felt poinsettia Christmas ornament.  This one is pretty easy, and doesn’t require any sewing, unless you want to put a little stitching on the button.  It’s completely made up of felt circles.  Cool, right? Also make sure to take a look at all of my other homemade Christmas ornament tutorials!

Any time I post a felt project, I like to recommend using a wool or wool blend.  It’s much better quality than acrylic and will make your project look much better.  I prefer a wool/rayon blend.

 

Felt Poinsettia Christmas OrnamentSupplies needed:

  • red felt cut into 14 1-1/2″circles and 1 1″ circle (you can use the template here)
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • 3/4″ or larger button
  • ribbon for hanging
  • embroidery floss or thread (optional)

First roll a small circle of felt into a cone and secure with hot glue.  Be VERY sparing with the glue so it doesn’t make a mess.  I didn’t even squeeze the trigger of my glue gun, and just used the small amount that was dripping out of the front.

Do the same thing with the rest of the circles.  Make sure to alternate gluing left over right and right over left to make a pattern like the photo below.

Glue the felt cones into seven pairs to form the petals of the poinsettia.

Glue everything together to make a big ring.

Now, you’ll need to grab your larger circle of felt, your button, your thread, and your ribbon.

Turn the ornament over and glue the large circle on the back.  Sandwich the ribbon in between the flower and the circle for hanging.

Sew a button in the middle of the flower with a piece of embroidery floss or thread.  I really like how this wooden button looks with the ornament, but a sparkly one might look nice too.  If you don’t want to sew, you can also just glue the button on.  I like the look of the thread on the button though.

That's just darling! I made a similar sort of no sew felt (from felted sweaters) poinsettia ornament that you can see here. But I really like how yours looks almost like a holiday wreath, and the button is a very sweet extra touch! Pinning! :) Lisa

Thank you! My favorite felt is manufactured by National Nonwovens. You can purchase it through them at commonwealthfelt.com or Joann Fabric sells it in limited colors. I'm pretty sure they would have red. I like the 35% or 20% wool blends.

Jessica: This poinsettia is so pretty. It reminds me of days when many ornaments were made of felt, and yet it has a more up-to-date look. Thanks for your clear instructions, too.
