FELT HALLOWEEN ORNAMENTS PATTERN + TUTORIAL

I love creating decorations that not only make our house feel festive but things that my daughter can play with. From a young age (as I’m sure most kids do), she has been enamored by our Holiday decorations so I try to make sure there are a few that won’t get damaged when she helps us redecorate over and over.

A few years ago, I picked up this spooky tree from Target and have made a collection of ornaments to accompany the tree over the years. When we pulled the tree out this year, my daughter asked for some new ornaments so I whipped up a spider, ghost, and witch.

MATERIALS

  • The Pattern
  • felt scraps (black, white, skin tone, green, purple, golden yellow)
  • matching embroidery thread
  • mini-brads (or beads or other alternative for the eyes)
  • ribbon
  • needle
  • scissors
  • freezer paper (Optional – If you’ve never used freezer paper, check out this tutorial)

PREPARE YOUR RIBBON LOOPS

Cut an approximately five inch section of ribbon and fold it in half. Sew a couple small stitches where the ends meet to hold the loop in place. Repeat for each ornament you wish to sew. Set aside.

GHOST

*Felt colors: white

Cut the ghost shapes from felt and embroider a smile on one of the two pieces. Stick in two black mini-brads for eyes, just above the smile.

Align the embellished front piece with the remaining ghost piece and, starting from the top left side of the ornament, blanket stitch around the edge, leaving a one inch gap at the top.

Position the ribbon loop in the gap at the top of the ornament and continue stitching the rest of the way around, securing the ribbon in the stitches.

SPIDER

*Felt colors: black

Cut the spider shapes from felt and embroider a smile on one of the two pieces. Stick in two green mini-brads for eyes, just above the smile.

Align the embellished front piece with the remaining spider piece and, starting from the top left side of the ornament, blanket stitch around the edge, leaving a one inch gap at the top.

Position the ribbon loop in the gap at the top of the ornament and continue stitching the rest of the way around, securing the ribbon in the stitches.

WITCH

*Felt colors: black, skin tone, green, purple, golden yellow

Cut the witch shapes from felt. (When cutting the “background” pieces, cut one from whatever color you would like your witch’s face to be. The second will be the back of the ornament and can be any color.)

Sew the green hair to the skin tone background piece. Align the hat overlapping the hair and stitch in place. Stitch the hat stripe and the buckle to the hat piece. Embroider a smile on the face. Stick in two black mini-brads for eyes, just above the smile, and two pink mini-brads for cheeks.

Align the embellished front piece with the remaining background piece and, starting from the top left side of the ornament, blanket stitch around the edge, leaving a one inch gap at the top.

Position the ribbon loop in the gap at the top of the ornament and continue stitching the rest of the way around, securing the ribbon in the stitches.

Don’t forget to check out the first set of Halloween ornaments (including a haunted house, candy corn, skull, tombstone, and spooky moon) and the second set of Halloween ornaments (including a piece of candy, spiderweb, black cat, witch hat, and frankenstein.)
