This no sew felt Christmas Ornament has layers of felt to give the ornament dimension. HTV is used to ass the fun decorative details. While my chosen medium is felt and HTV – this ornament can also be made from cardstock and vinyl, chipboard, or wood.For this Christmas Ornament DIY you will need:
Cricut (or other cutting machine to cut the HTV)

Gingerbread House Ornaments DIY (free felt Christmas ornament pattern) Instructions:
Step 1 – Cut Out the Free Gingerbread House Ornament Template
This felt Gingerbread house ornament has a lot of little pieces to it. I strongly recommend that you keep all the little bits in a sandwich bag ( or some other small bag) until you’re ready to glue the ornament together so you don’t lose anything.
Cut out 1 of the house background from the color you desire.
Cut one of the main house.
Next cut out the roof and the 2 window “snow” melts.
Set the felt ornament pieces aside.
Cut out the Door and the shutters. Set aside.
Cut out the two windows, and the door knob – set aside
Finally cut out the wreath and set that aside.
From the HTV cut out the house elements in white ( the main house, door, windows and shutters). Cut out the wreath decoration from pink or alternate color of your choosing. Weed the Vinyl and set aside.
Step 2 – Add the HTV to the Gingerbread House Ornament
Now it’s time to add all those wonderful HTV details to the ornament.
Let’s start with the main house. I find it’s easiest to line up the chimney bricks and then everything else should line up.
Iron on. Then peel according to the directions for your HTV.
This is how it should look – with outlines of where to place the other felt elements later.
Now it’s time to iron on the details to the felt windows. Center the HTV.
Iron on. Set the elements aside.
Add the details to the door and shutters.
Iron on and set aside.
Finally iron on the ornaments to the wreath and set aside.
With all of the HTV ironed on we have all the elements ready to assemble the felt gingerbread house ornament.
Step 3 – Bring the Felt Gingerbread House Ornament Together
Start by centering the main house onto the outline. Glue into place.
Next, using the HTV spaces as a guide, glue the door and the windows to the gingerbread house.
Now add the shutters to either side of the large window and glue into place.
Add the snow to the roofline and glue it into place.
Finally add the snow to the top of the rounded window, the bottom of the large window and glue the wreath to the center of the large window.
If desired make a loop with 8″ of ribbon and glue to the back of the ornament for hanging.
