How to Make a Felt Geometric Poinsettia Christmas Ornament

With a little bit of cutting and stitching and our free printable pattern, you can craft a whole bouquet of these geometric felt poinsettia ornaments. Try using different colored felts, like cream or pink, for a rainbow of Christmas blooms.

These easy-to-make felt Christmas ornaments feature a modern poinsettia design in classic red-and-green holiday colors. While it would look great on your Christmas tree, it would also make a great gift tag for a bottle of wine or other hostess gift. The directions are for making one ornament, so adjust your supply amounts if you want to make multiples.

How to Make the Ornament

  1. Download the free pattern. Place freezer paper, shiny side down, over the printed patterns. Trace as indicated; cut out.
  2. Using an iron, press freezer-paper shapes, shiny side down, onto felt; let cool. Cut out shapes and peel off paper.
  3. Center a dark red petal section on the green circle front. Place a bright red petal section on top; turn it clockwise until all points are visible. Repeat with a light red petal section, turning it so all 12 points are visible. Use a small amount of felt adhesive to secure all the layers in place.
  4. Use pearl beads to add a flower center, stitching through all the petal sections and the green circle front.
  5. Sew circle front to back, leaving an opening. Add fiberfill; sew opening closed. Attach a drapery clip ring.

Optional: For the chair decoration shown, place a greenery sprig on top of the clip and tie together with a wide red ribbon. Pin the ribbon loop to the back of a chair so the ornament hangs down.
