tree ornaments

Happy December!  It’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl here kicking off December with a quick and fun Christmas Ornament Tutorial.  I love to make personalized ornaments and with Therm o Web’s HeatnBond® EZ Print Transfer paper its easy!   Let’s get started, December is flying by!!


Wide mouth mason jar lids

5″ square background fabric

5″ square Therm o Web HeatnBond® Fusible Fleece

Small pieces of green fabrics and brown fabrics

spool of ribbon


Heat n Bond® EZ print Transfer Sheets

Heat n Bond® EZ Pressing paper

Tree Pattern, click HERE

Words, click HERE

Piece of Christmas card stock cut into a circle the exact size of the jar lid

Begin by cutting a 5″ square of background fabric and fusible fleece.  Fuse the fleece to the wrong side of the background fabric.  This gives the fabric a little stability and softness.

Print out the tree patterns and roughly cut them out and iron them to the wrong side of the tree and trunk fabrics.  Cut on the pattern line, peel off backing paper.

Center the tree on the background fabric and press into place.

Top stitch around the tree and trunk three times in black thread.  I like the stitching to look “sketchy” but it’s hard to not sew along the same line each time – you need to purposefully not follow the pattern.

Print out the words in REVERSE on the EZ Print Transfer Sheets for light fabric.  Cut around the words and heat set in place.  Let cool then peel off the paper.

Punch 2 holes in the mason jar ring – I used a tree applique ornament 5

Thread the ribbon through and knot it in a loop.  Cut a second piece of ribbon and tie a bow.  Center the design and push through the mason jar ring.  Trim off excess and hot blue into place.  Hot clue excess fabric down and glue all the way around the inside as pictured below:christmas tree applique ornament 6

Place the card stock circle in the back to cover the mess!

Hot glue the bow to cover the holes.  Finished!  Now go make one for all your friends!!!christmas tree applique ornament 7I sewed a button to the top of this tree.  You could easily sew buttons to each tree or add other embellishments.  I love being able to add a word to a fabric craft!  I’m off to make more – think cats, owls, gingerbread men, and birds!

    Hey Amanda!!
    I am making your Christmas Tree Ornaments for Christmas and I was wondering if it would be at all possible to send me the words in reverse as my computer does not have the ability to flip the image.
    Thank You
