Pretty Poinsettia Felt Christmas Ornament

This felt Christmas ornament inspired by poinsettias was a lot of fun to make, and it was really easy too! No sewing machine required.

Skills Required: None. You’ll be cutting, hot gluing, and then attaching a button. You’ll need a needle and thread . . . but you can also just use hot glue.

I love making homemade Christmas ornaments to hang on our tree! This felt Christmas ornament inspired by poinsettias was a lot of fun to make, and it was really easy too.

No sewing skills required, unless you want to put a little stitching on the button in the middle. It’s really neat because it’s mostly made up of little felt circles. The more you look at it, the cooler it gets!

If you enjoy felt Christmas ornaments, especially the no sew kind, I’d love for you to check out the tutorial below.

Gather These Supplies

  • Red felt cut into 14 1-1/2″ circles and one 1″ circle (you can use the template here)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • 3/4″ or larger button
  • Ribbon for hanging
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery floss or thread (optional)

Roll a small circle of felt into a small cone and secure with hot glue. Be VERY sparing with the glue so it doesn’t make a mess. I didn’t even squeeze the trigger of my glue gun, and just used the small amount that was dripping out of the front.

Glue the remaining small circles into cones. Alternate gluing left over right and right over left to make a pattern like the photo below.

Glue the cones into seven pairs to form the poinsettia petals.

Glue the pairs together to make a big ring.

To finish it off, grab your larger circle of felt, your ribbon, your button, and your thread.

Turn the poinsettia over and glue the large circle on the back, sandwiching the ribbon in between for hanging.

Sew a button in the middle of the flower with a piece of embroidery floss or thread. If you don’t feel confident sewing on a button, that’s no problem! You can just glue it instead.

Now you’ve got a lovely new felt Christmas ornament to hang on your tree!

DIY felt Christmas ornament shaped like a poinsettia

I’m thinking these poinsettia ornaments would be awesome to do in a few colors. You could do an entire red and white themed tree, for example!

Another idea is using mid-century modern colors to give your Christmas tree a bit of modern flair. There are so many options!

Red Poinsettia Ornament - I made a red felt poodle skirt and I was curious about what I could do with a large piece of felt left from the circular skirt. What a super idea - I plant to make one ornament for each Grandchild with their name and date embroidered on the back. Thank you for the great idea !
