If you have ever visited a Scandinavian country at Christmas time, you will notice how the colors of white and red dominate the holiday decorations. This simple and charming color combination is perfect for creating stitched felt ornaments for your tree.

Felt Scandinavian Heart Ornament 330




Time required: about 30 minutes

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

- white felt
- red embroidery floss -4 strands - (two strands doubled) are used to
  stitch around the heart and the snowflakes
- batting
- embroidery needle
- trick marker for transferring markings onto the felt
- heart cookie cutter or other heart template


1. Cut out 2 hearts from your felt.
2. On one heart, trace snowflakes and cross stitches onto the heart. The trick marker has the advantage that the markings will disappear within a few hours or if you slightly dampen the markings with water. Now the stitch over the markings with embroidery floss.  Secure the ends on the backside of the heart.
3. Place the two hearts over each other with the right sides on the outside. Blanket stitch around the heart until you are shortly before the end. Fill the heart with stuffing and then blanket stitched closed.
4. Create a loop using embroidery floss and sew onto the top of the heart as a hanger.
