Fun Felt Christmas Ornaments

Our Felt Christmas Ornaments Double as a Finger Puppet

Felt is a great medium for kids to work with. And sewing is a great life skill for anyone to learn, regardless of age! So follow our easy instructions...we even provide you with a free template. So why don't we get started?

Let's see what you'll need:


  • Felt (light brown for the body, red for his mouth)
  • Ribbon (we used light blue gingham)
  • Two small buttons
  • Two small-medium googly eyes
  • Fabric scissors
  • Needle and thread or hot glue gun (adult supervision required)
  • Craft glue (we used liquid UHU)
  • Our template


1. Print out our template and cut two gingerbread figures from the light brown felt.
