I absolutely LOVE making my own Christmas ornaments and if you're viewing this then you probably do too!!! 

Tools and materials you'll need to make these Needle Felted Woodland Ornaments:   

3 mm wool felt                                                       
Colored tailor's chalk pencil
Needle-felting mat and tool
Screw punch
  1. Print templates; cut out.
  2. Trace templates onto felt with tailor's chalk, and cut out.
  3. Place a felting-needle mat under felt, and lay a few tufts of roving side by side where desired. Using a needle-felting tool, punch fibers through felt until they transfer evenly to the reverse side.
  4. Remove stray fibers by pressing felted area with one hand and teasing out stray pieces with the other. Repeat until area is covered.
  5. Use a screw punch to make a hole at the top. Hang with twine.
