It’s the most busiest time of the year.
But there’s always time for crafting! (I’ll sleep when I’m dead.)
Being that I’m getting a little worried about a Covid second wave, and stores shutting down again, I’ve actually managed to get a ton of my personal Christmas prep done already. So I’m seeing a lot of fun crafting + cheesy Christmas movies in my future!
When you see this round-up of adorable free felt ornament patterns, I know you’ll be clearing some time in your schedule to craft too.
But if you don’t feel like crafting any of these cuties yourself, head over to my shop to purchase some ornaments ready-made! Orders for embroidered letter ornaments are keeping me very busy these days!
Free Felt Ornament Patterns
1. Wine Glass
I bet you know at least one person in your life who would love a sparkly sequinned wine glass ornament! (I know several, lol)
2. Sweet Treats
I wrote up a sweet treat series of ornaments that includes a sprinkle donut, an ice cream cone and a cupcake. So cute & delicious!
3. Christmas Tree
I’ve always wondered what those teeny tiny pretend Christmas lights were for!
But like a hippie narwhal.
5. Little House
You could adapt this pattern to resemble a meaningful house in your own life, like your childhood home. An excellent gift idea!
6. Little Camper
I designed this little camper van to be used in a garland, but it’s also the perfect size to use as an ornament too! Just add a string loop to the top of the roof.

7. Santa’s Face
This little Santa face is from one of my favourite felt crafters, Gingermelon, her patterns are irresistible!
8. Mitten with Monogram
9. Deer & Fox
So simple and sweet, I think I’d like them a little stuffed too.
10. Gingerbread House
Gingerbread houses really invite you to over-embellish. I think I’d add some metallic stitching or glitter details!
11. Ornament Gift Tags
I love the vintage-y look of these ornaments. These would be a great way to give a gift card and hide it in the tree!
12. Christmas Pickle
An odd little Christmas tradition, with a hat.
A fun felt unicorn ornament for little ones. You could add a monogram or name to the back of them.
14. Ice Skates
Classic and elegant.
15. Ugly Sweaters
I love a good ugly Christmas sweater! More bells! More beads! More glitter!!
16. Woodland Animals
The scarves are too much!
17. Star Wars Characters
For a very geeky Christmas, the best kind.
I love the non-traditional colours for this gnome. If you’re looking for more Christmas gnomes, check out this post of 17 DIY Christmas Gnome Crafts!
19. Ribbon Candy
The zig zag stitching down the middle is really cute and adds interest to an otherwise very simple DIY felt ornament.
You could add some fun embroidery detailing to the hats to make them extra special!
21. Jingle Bell
Classic Christmas, simple and glittery.
22 Bonus. Beluga Whale
And a bonus pattern! I just finished writing up the post for this cutie pie beluga whale freebie!
23. Christmas Lightbulb
The cutest little embroidered Xmas lightbulb!

Do you have patterns for hedgehogs? I’m actually making some of these as toys for my hedgehogs and thought some boy and girl hedgehog ornaments made would be cute to add to my tree. Thank you
Hi Michelle, I do have a little hedgehog pattern and he’s the perfect size for an ornament! He’s part of my woodland collection which you can find here: https://www.theyellowbirdhouse.com/product/felt-woodland-animal-patterns/
Love the ornaments especially the houses and cones, cupcakes and donuts.

Hi, I was wondering if I can get all the pattern on this website, please?
They all are so adorable, and I want to make them all!
Hi Zoe, Each ornament has a link to the original post with the pattern and tutorials. Have fun sewing them all! 😀

Hi Wendy, no, there is no cost associated with any patterns that I’ve labeled as free. Some patterns may require a sign-up to access, but that’s all. 🙂
