Teach your kids about sewing by making these charming felt + yarn ornaments together! It's simple, fun, festive and the sky is the limit as far as shapes and colors!

You will need:

1. Cookie cutters

2. Felt

3. Embroidery floss

4. Scissors

5.Needle (with large eye)
6. Marker
Layer two sheets of felt and place a cookie cutter on top of them.
Trace the shape of the cookie cutter and then cut it out with scissors.
Hand stitch around the edges.
Let kids help with this as the imperfections make the ornaments even more charming.
After you are done stitching, take a length of the embroidery floss and thread it through the center back of the ornament to make a hanger.
Tie it together at the top.
Most important tip: Have fun together!
