Punching a Hole in Felt: 

How to punch holes in felt - using a leather punch felt

Using a leather or heavy-duty punch you can easily punch through multiple layers of felt. It’s best to do this AFTER sewing your felt ornament together.

You can stitch around the hole for added durability but if you are using good felt it shouldn’t be necessary.

Add Ribbons: 

Cut 8″ of ribbon and thread through the hole. Tie a knot and slide to the back.

Cut 5″ of ribbon and tie into a bow around the loop.

Fix into place with a quick stitch through the center to hold both the bow and the loop. Use fray check or clear nail polish on raw ribbon ends.

Finishing a felt ornament with ribbon - use clear nail polish to keep ribbon from fraying
