Felted Crochet Christmas Ornaments

Decorate your tree or give these easy crochet Christmas ornaments as gifts this holiday season.

I don’t know about you but decorating for the Christmas holiday is my favorite. Each year I try and add a little bit of crochet to my collection of ornaments and holiday décor.

This year I decided to crochet a bunch of these hearts and star as ornaments. Then I decided to take it a step further by felting them. I think they turned out so awesome.

I’m also going to be wrapping them up in cute little gift boxes and giving them to our family and friends this year as Christmas gifts.

What is “felting”?

Well I’m glad you asked. Felting is the process of bonding and compressing wool fibers into a solid piece of fabric.

It sounds complicated but it’s really not.

How to felt your crochet

Felted Crochet Christmas Ornaments

First, you need the items you’re going to felt. In this case, it’s my little hearts and stars.

Very Important: your items need to be made from non-superwash 100% wool yarn.

Here are a couple of options:

You can find the heart and star patterns here:

You’ll also need:

Jute Cord 

Wooden Beads with openings big enough for 2 strands of  cord

Then you need a bowl or sink of clean hat water. I added a little bit of Soak wool wash to my water but that step is optional.

Next, place your items in the water and move them around, rub them together, smoosh them all up… no need to be gentle!

The hot water and movement will bond the wool fibers together into a solid piece.

Rinse felted crochet heart and star

Give them a quick rinse in cold water. Squeeze out the excess and lay them flat on a towel to dry. It’s very important that they are flat because once they are dry they will stay that way.

Now that your hearts and stars are dry you can assemble them into ornaments.

Materials:

  • Jute Cord

  • Scissors.
