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.
This week, I will be sharing a different DIY Halloween Tree Ornament every day. Today, I gotta tell ya, might be my favorite! How can you not love plush felt Bride of Frankensteins lined with aqua ball fringe? The best part is these guys are EASY to make and NO-SEW. Yup, you heard me! Let’s craft, shall we?
- Treetopia Lively Lavender Christmas Tree
- Stencil 1 Halloween Stencils
- Black craft paint
- Stencil brush
- Colorful craft felt
- Ball fringe
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
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.
Using a hot glue gun or craft glue, add ball fringe to the inside edges of one of your pieces of felt.
Again, using hot glue, attach the two pieces of felt together—leaving a small opening at the top.
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!
I collect vintage Halloween masks, so for me these DIY felt ornaments were the perfect accent for my Lively Lavender monster mask covered tree! As I always say, if you can’t find the perfect ornament for your themed Christmas (Halloween) tree, just make your own!
