Felt Reindeer Ornament

Oh I am SOOOO excited to share these ADORABLE cute Felt Reindeer Ornaments. Actually it is a two for one craft.. you can either make a Rudolph Brooch or a reindeer ornament. The brooch is a little easier for kids to manage, the ornament is great for a more experience sewer. It is still easy, but you have to manage “holding” bit in place. We love DIY Christmas Ornaments and hope you enjoy this one too! This is a great project to get kids into sewing and we have a fabulous resource of Kids Sewing Projects FOR CHRISTMAS, as well as more general sewing projects for kids for you to browse and check out!

We have a little video for you, which shows how to make the Reindeer as a brooch. The Brooch is a little easier to make if you are working on this with kids! I do rather adore the ornament though. But they are both cute!
