Felt Button Ornament SetPosted on Nov 23, 2017 6:56:00 AM by Grace Tolman
My favorite part of holiday crafting is going through my existing stash and making some festive out of it. With this project, I combined some scrap felt, buttons and ribbon from my stash to create some cute Christmas tree ornaments.
Made by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 45 minutes
Size: 4 ¼ x 2 ¾ x 1"
Here's what you need:
- Glue Dots® Advanced Strength Adhesive
- Glue Dots® Mini Dots™
- Felt - Green, Light Pink, White
- Embroidery Thread
- Ribbons - Green, Bold Pink, Light green
- Circle die
Here's what you do:
Create the base of the ornament with the double pierced steel die cut. *I used a fun foam sheet to add another layer between my die cut plates to get a clear cut into the felt fabric.
Create two circles from each color of felt.
Thread coordinating embroidery floss through a needle and make running stitches around the circles, leaving a 1" opening to fill with foam.
Fill the circle with just enough foam that it will become a 3 dimensional piece (you don’t want it to be too stiff). Cut a piece of ribbon that is about 4" in length, fold in half and tuck inside the ornament before closing up the circle with the rest of the stitching.
Create a bow with the same color ribbon and adhere to the top of the ornament, just under the looped ribbon using Mini Glue Dots.
Create a floral design using the buttons. I chose one large one in the center and then surrounding it with various smaller buttons.
Once the design is set, adhere the largest one onto the center of the ornament with some Glue Dots Advanced Strength adhesive, then put the smaller buttons around the center button with Mini Glue Dots.
Repeat process to make as many ornaments as you would like.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
