The Simple Cheer Felt Christmas Ornaments Kit from Dimensions includes precut felt pieces, presorted thread, cording, stuffing, needle, and instructions.  I really like the fanciful look & colors of these retro inspired felt ornaments. They remind me of something you might see in How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss.

Handmade felt ornaments last throughout the years and bring back fun memories of holiday crafting.  Use finished felt ornaments to trim a Christmas tree, embellish a wreath, or decorate gifts!

Starting your ornament craft projects now is a great way to get a head start on the busy holiday season.

Bucilla felt kits usually require more precision cutting, detailed embroidery & embellishments.

While they do take more time to create, the end result is amazing! Your finished felt ornaments will be treasured holiday keepsakes.
