Materials Needed:

  • 2 coordinating fabrics
  • fusible web (Wonder Under)
  • sharp scissors
  • iron
  • ribbon

Trace Pattern Onto Fabric

Print template and cut out ornaments you want to use. Tip: Enlarge patterns or cut outside the printed lines to create bigger ornaments. Trace pattern onto front of fabric using a pencil or chalk. Cut out the area of fabric around the traced shape — but don't worry about cutting out the actual ornament at this point.

Layer and Fuse Fabrics

Cut a piece of fusible web that's approximately the same size as your fabric. Flip fabric over, place fusible web glue-side-down (has a slightly shiny, rough texture) and press for 5 to 8 seconds with a hot, dry iron (Image 1). Allow to cool, then peel off the paper backing — your fabric now has an adhesive side and can be applied to another piece of fabric. Place fabric glue-side-down onto the back side of coordinating fabric then fuse the two layers together by pressing again with the iron (Image 2).

Cut Out and Embellish

Use sharp scissors to cut along traced pencil lines (Image 1). Embellish your ornament by adding a small amount of glue then attaching pom-poms, sequins or upholstery trim (Images 2 and 3). Use a hole punch or nail to create a small hole in the ornament's top then thread through ribbon for hanging (Image 4).
