Felt Bell Christmas Ornaments


To make these felt bells you will need:

felt

bell shaped cookie cutter

black pen

sharp scissors

coordinating embroidery thread

hand sewing needle

cotton filling or sachet filling

jingle bells

thin coordinating ribbon





First trace and cut out the bell shape on the felt, cut out the bell shapes.



On the top piece of felt embroider a snowflake. On the top of the bottom piece sew a ribbon loop. Then sew the top piece to the bottom piece with a running stitch. Before the bell is completely sewn shut fill with cotton fill in or sweet smelling sachet filler. Then at the bottom of the bell sew a jingle bell.


These would make a cute hostess gift or they would be a cute addition to the top of a wrapped package. I like to add Christmas ornaments to my cookie plates that I make for my neighbors.


They say every time a bell rings - an angel gets their wings!
