St. Nicholas Ornament
by Mollie Johanson, Wild Olive: Handmade Crafts and Cuteness
This sweet little Saint Nicholas ornament is a quick and easy project for St. Nicholas Day—and to put on the Christmas tree later.
Gold, dark brown & white embroidery floss
Flesh colored felt *
Red fabric (or felt)
St. Nicholas pattern PDF
|Cut out the large face piece from flesh colored felt and stitch on a face, making french knots for the eyes.|
|Cut out the beard from white felt; stitch it along the bottom of the face.|
|On the red fabric, stitch the cross lines. You can do small stitches, or large ones, as shown.|
|Cut out the hat shape from the embroidered red fabric. Cut it to be just a teeny bit larger than the template. It may look a little strange, but don't worry! It will come out fine!|
|Stitch the hat onto the top of the flesh colored backing.|
|Take a piece of embroidery floss and
thread it through the top, between the felt and the fabric. Tie a
knot to make a hanger.
At this point, you can leave it and be done, or if you'd like to cover up your stitches, add a second large face piece from felt and glue it to the back.
|St. Nicholas is ready to go on the
tree! Keep him close as a reminder that we have a responsibility
to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Happy St. Nicholas Day!
*Wool felt is available from Magic Cabin
