Felt Reindeer Ornament

I've got another cute little felt ornament to show you all..

Felt Reindeer Ornament

Can't wait to put this guy on my tree with my felt gingerbread man ornament! Since this is hubby's and my first Christmas together we are a little short on ornaments. I've been trying to get my rear in gear to craft some!!

First thing I did was sketch out a little reindeer head shape and cut it out with cardboard to use as a guide for two heads cut out in brown felt

Can't forget the reindeer antlers! I cut them out with black felt

I cut out a little red nose out of felt and stitched it on with embroidery floss. A couple more stitches gave me a smile, and I also stitched two black beads on for eyes!

After all the face is made, I put the other brown piece of felt behind and stuck in the antlers and used a blanket stitch to close him up, stuffing some fluff in during the process!

Here he is all stuffed and fluffed:

Last step needed to make this little guy an ornament was to just stitch a loop on the top out of the embroidery floss! All set to be hung on my tree!


Crafting with felt is one of my favorite crafts. 10 years from now my tree will probably be covered in little felt ornaments haha! They are just so cute and easy to make! Enjoy making yourself a little reindeer if you give it a whirl!

I'll be linking up to these parties:
