Instructions to make the Felt Owl Christmas Tree Ornaments

Follow these simple steps to make these gorgeous felt Christmas tree ornaments.

Step 1

Cut a shape from the red crafting felt to create the owl’s body. This shape is like a circle but narrower at the top than the bottom. It should be roughly the size of your palm or whatever size you would like your ornaments to be.

Cut the owl's body

Step 2

Cut two pieces of round white felt for the owl’s eyeballs.

Step 3

Cut two smaller black circles and hot glue them to the white felt circles to complete the eyes.

Make the owl's eyes

Step 4

Hot glue the eyes onto the body’s top edge, leaving enough space between them for the little yellow nose.

Step 5

Cut a small, pointed triangle from the yellow crafting felt and glue it pointing downwards between the eyes.

Add the nose

Step 6

Cut two wings from the green crafting felt and hot glue them onto the body below the eyes. Position them so that the upper tips of the wings are placed under the owl’s eyeballs.

Add wings

Step 7

Cut two tiny owl feet from the black felt and glue them onto the bottom of the body.

Add the owl's feet

Step 8

Cut about two inches of metallic ribbon and glue it to the back of the owl’s eyes. This creates a loop to hang the ornament.
