How to Make It:

  1. Trace the circle and swirl patterns onto tracing paper and cut out. Draw two circles on white felt and two swirl- circles on red felt. Cut out the shapes.
  2. Using fabrics glue, adhere a red swirl-circle to each white circle; let dry. Machine-sew the swirl-circles onto the white circles.
  3. With wrong sides facing, sew the assembled circles together, leaving an opening for stuffing. Stuff the shape with fiberfill and sew the opening closed.
  4. Fold the rickrack in half and sew it securely to the edge of the circle. Form two same-size loops and two tails with the satin ribbon.
  5. Tie the ribbon in the center with the rickrack and secure to the peppermint ornament. Clip the hook over the center of the bow for a hanging loop.
