DIY Felt Ornament โ„๏ธ ๐ŸŽ„

Hello everybody and welcome to Blogmas Day 22!

Have you ever seen those 3D paper snowflakes that are super trendy pretty much everywhere these days? Here isย a single one made with felt. I saw this idea on Pinterest and Betz White inspired me to make one!
Avete mai visto quei fiocchi di neveย 3D fatti di carta? Immaginatevi ora uno singolo fatto di feltro. Ho visto questa idea su Pinterest e Betz White mi ha ispirato a farne uno!

What you will need is:

  • Thick felt
  • Chalk liner pen
  • Fishing line
  • Xacto knife and scissors
  • Glue gun

Occorrente:

  • Feltro abbastanza spesso
  • Penna bianca o gesso
  • Filo trasparente
  • Taglierina e forbici
  • Colla a caldo

This shape is actually called Ogee and it’s made out of a square and a few straight cuts! The 3D snowflake has 6 of these shapes but just like Betz White I liked a single one. You can either make 6 or also a chain full of these!
Questa forma si chiama Ogee ed รจ creata usando un quadrato e ritagliando delle linee! Il fiocco di neve 3D che conoscete ne ha 6 di queste forme, ma io come Betz White ho preferito farne una singola. Ne puoi fare 6 e creare un fiocco di neve, o anche farne diverse e appenderle tutte insieme una sotto l’altra.

1. The first thing you need to do is cut a square of felt. Mine was 18cm x 18cm (almost 6″-6″).
1. La prima cosa che devi fare รจ ritagliare un quadrato di feltro. Il mio misura 18cm x 18cm.

2. Next, mark a diagonal line across the square from corner to corner. Then mark lines about 2cm apart (3/4″), all parallel to each other, using the white pen or chalk.
2. Poi devi tracciare una linea diagonale che va da angolo ad angolo. Traccia delle line distanti 2cm l’una dall’altra, usando la penna bianca o il gesso.

3. Using a ruler and an Xacto knife or felt cutter, cut along all the lines. Remember to leave about 5mm (1/4″) from the diagonal line. Repeat until you made all the cuts.
3. Aiutandoti con un righello e una taglierina, taglia tutte le linee. Ma ricorda di lasciare 5mm dalla linea diagonale. Ripeti fino a quando non hai tagliato tutte le linee.

4. Now you need to lift the corners, starting from the center, and glue them together using a glue gun. Turn the pieceย over and lift the corners of the second square. Repeat always turning over the piece every time you glued each corner.
4. Ora devi prendere gli angoli, partendo dal centro, ed incollarli insieme con la colla a caldo. Gira il pezzo e prendi i due angoli del secondo quadrato. Ripeti fino all’ultimo pezzo.

5. Using a needle create a hanging loop with fishing line and add some felt balls (optional). I also added a mini bell.
5. Aiutandoti con un ago inserisci il filo trasparente e delle palline di feltro (facoltativo). Fai un nodo in modo da appenderlo. Ho aggiunto anche un campanellino rosso.

6. Hang it wherever you want!
6. Appendilo dove vuoi!
