Finding the perfect Halloween ornaments can be tricky business. Especially if you do Halloween like I do Halloween. Sure, orange and black are swell, but let us not forget the awesomeness of hot pink werewolves and lime green mummies! Especially when you pair them with a purple Halloween tree.

Supplies:

Use a dry brush technique when stenciling your Halloween ornaments.

DIY Halloween Stencil

Place your stencil onto your craft felt. Using a dry brush technique, apply paint. Dry brush means less is more, when it comes to paint. Too much paint on your brush will often times mess up your stencil.

Stencil as many ornaments as you would like. Allow the paint to dry. Cut out images, leaving a bit of an edge. Feel free to use more traditional colors, if that is your kinda Halloween. These would look amazing in white on black felt!

Place the stenciled felt on top of another piece of felt. Cut out the same size. This second piece of felt will be the back of your Halloween tree ornament.

Add ball fringe to the back of your monster ornament

Using a hot glue gun or craft glue, add ball fringe to the inside edges of one of your pieces of felt.

Make a pouch with the two pieces of stenciled felt so you can stuff your Halloween ornament.

Again, using hot glue, attach the two pieces of felt together—leaving a small opening at the top.

Fill felt ornament with batting so that it is stuffed.

Using batting, stuff the ornament. Be sure not to overstuff, use just enough to give it dimension.

Cut a small loop of yarn and insert into the hole. Using hot glue, close up your ornament with the yarn inside. All that is left to do is decorate your Halloween tree!
