Easy Christmas Ornament | Snowflake

This time of year, I just love finding an easy Christmas ornament to make with the kids.  This snowflake is just that. They are easy to make, very fast and require little fabric.

Basic Instructions:
  1. Cut felt into strips. 2″ wide and 4″ wide.
  2. Fold small strip in half width wise and sandwich it inside the 4″ strip. Fold in half and straight stitch along the long edge.
  3. At the very end of strip, insert your folded ribbon between the layers and stitch.
  4. Cut stitched strips into 1/2″ sections. 5 sections are needed to make 1 star ornament.

Have fun playing with the size of the felt strips. You can create different shapes and patterns for your snowflake.
Personally, I just love the way they look and the kids love making them!  It’s a totally win/win in my book!
