Easy Christmas Crafts: Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament


Simple felt and a chenille wire turn into a Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament for a fun and interesting addition to the holiday decorations - or make it with ribbon instead.

Here's a version using dark green and dark red colors of felt.

Easy Christmas Crafts: Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament Materials and Tools:

  • Two colors of hobby felt (9-inch by 12-inch)
  • Chenille wire, 12-inch length
  • Yarn
  • Ruler 
  • Scissors

Not required, but the cuts are easier if you have a rotary cutter, clear ruler and self-healing mat.

Take a look at the simple materials and tools shown here.

Instead of the felt, you can use 1/2-inch wide woven ribbon without wire edges.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament :

Cut several 4-inch by 1/2-inch felt strips.

The thickness of the felt (or ribbon) determines how many pieces fit around the circle.

Cut a 4-inch by 12-inch length of the main color of felt.

Then, cut this strip into 1/2-inch widths. (This was a medium thickness hobby felt. I had a few pieces left over.)

For the highlight felt, cut three strips 4-inch by 1/2-inch.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 1 cut pieces of felt

Fold the 12-inch chenille wire in half.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 2 fold chenille wire in half

Bend the chenille wire.

Insert the ends through the folded end.

Fold over 1/2-inch of the ends.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 3 bend chenille wire

Flatten the folded ends to form the chenille wire circle.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 4 form wire circle

Fold the first felt strip in half.

Place the folded felt under the chenille circle.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 5 fold first felt strip

Pull the ends of the felt strip around the chenille wire and through the loop of the folded end of the felt.

Pull the ends snugly but not too tightly, the felt can stretch too much.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 6 add first felt strip

Continue adding felt strips to the chenille wire.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 7 add more felt strips

Add the three highlight felt strips to the 4 o'clock position.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 8 add highlight color

Finish adding the main color felt strips; as many as will fit around the Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 9 finish felt strips

Cut a length of yarn 10 to 12 inches long.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 10 cut yarn

Insert the length of yarn through the center of the circle.

Match the ends and tie a knot to form the hanging loop.

Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament step 11 make yarn loop

The Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament is finished and ready to display.

Simple and colorful, this fun and easy project can be a great way to involve children (with their smaller fingers) in making holiday decorations.

Make them in holiday colors, two colors as shown here or in a lot of different colors.

For variety, cut v-shapes in the ends of the felt.

Have fun!

The Felt Fringe Wreath Ornament is an inexpensive, fun and easy group project for families, senior centers, office groups or church groups.
