Give your Christmas tree a bit of character with these sewn miniature versions of itself! This project is especially handy if you have small kids because this ornament won’t break if they pull it off the tree. You can make it in a few minutes with a bit of felt, ribbon, and some glitter if you want it to sparkle.

Ribbon candy

The downside to candy Christmas tree decorations is that “someone“ eats them way too fast and they become ugly empty like that. These ribbon candy decorations are the solution for that because no one can eat them! You just fold the felt a bunch of times, do some stitching, and they’re ready to go onto the tree.

Add a bit of magic to your tree with this adorable gnome ornament. Gnomes are said to be nature spirits that live underground, often interacting with humans in either helpful or mischievous ways. This is one of those projects that are extremely simple with an amazing result. You don’t need to sew anything here, you can use a hot glue gun to join the pieces. Shape the beard, set the nose, form the hat, and put them all together to finish the gnome!
