Felt 6 Layer Circle Ornament & A Pickle


This is a felt ornament I wanted to try.
It's has 6 layers of 4 1/2 inch circles.
These are very light weight.
I didn't have any small beads to 
add at the connection points,
which I think would have made
it prettier and added focal points.
It would also have helped hold
the ornament open, as it tends
to go flat when you lay it down.  

HERE is the tutorial I followed at
Zakka Life - this their ornament:


Also, I participated in the Ornament Swap over at
I was partnered with Kendra of
Here is the ornament she sent me
A super cute pickle!
Thanks Kendra!

Happy Saturday Y'all

    1. Hi Angie! I'm sure you two will have fun making these together. I'm thinking a tri-color theme would also be pretty!

  2. This is so cute! I've seen similar ornaments made with paper but felt is so much more elegant. It would look wonderful with sparkle felt too! :-)

    1. Hi Jill, they're easy but do put something like a bead, or whatever, maybe a contrasting stitch with embroidery floss, to give it more stability. Thanks so much for commenting, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    1. Thanks Christina! I think if I'd used the thicker felted wool it would have had more stiffness, except I can't stand wool ;- / which is why I stick to the craft felt.

  6. This is cute as can be. We made some almost like them when my boy was little. Wonder where they are now.:)

  7. Those are cute!
    the circle ornament looks easy enough! You could whip up several of those in no time! LOL...
    I think I agree with you on the beads...(or sequins) a little sparkle.

    1. Thanks! I'm working on a different style - will link when it's finished - It's much prettier but a bit more time consuming.
