How to make a No Sew Felt Nativity Ornament
- felt fabric
- fabric glue or hot glue
Print out the no sew nativity ornament template and cut out all of the pattern pieces.
Choose different colored felt fabrics for the ornaments.
Trace the patterns onto the chosen felt fabrics and cut them out.
If you are making this project with younger kids, an adult can cut out the pattern and felt pieces to make this project easier.
See the photo below for the colors we chose, but feel free to choose any colors you like for your ornament!
Use hot glue or fabric glue to glue the nativity ornament together. I recommend fabric glue if you are making this ornament with young children.
Glue the roof on the top of the house piece and attach the long strip along the bottom of the house.

For Mary, glue her scarf onto her head.

Place Mary and Joseph on either side of the stable and attach them with glue.
Next, glue the manger over the bottom edge of baby Jesus’ body, so it looks like he is inside the manger.

Finally, take a small piece of ribbon, form a loop with it, and glue it on the back of the stable to complete the Nativity ornament.
