  • Step 3: Using scissors or a craft knife, cut the ornaments shapes out of the foam board.
  • Step 4: Drizzle tacky glue onto the foam board shapes and place them onto a sheet of felt. Let dry.
  • Step 5: Using scissors, cut the felt so it's lined up with the foam board shape.
  • Step 6: Repeat Steps 4 and 5 for the second side of the foam board shape.
  • Step 7: Decorate your DIY Christmas ornament by gluing on rickrack and other colors of felt. Let dry.
