55.) Felt & Paper Clip Skates | Krokotak
My grandmother made little knit skates like this for our tree one year with the paper clip runners, and they were always one of my favorite ornaments to hang on the tree.

As an admitted camera buff, I totally fell for these flashy little cameras 📸.

We live on some land with a fair number of trees and tend to find abandoned nests from time to time. So I decided to use this little nest to house our little owl felt Christmas ornament.

62.) Dachshunds | spabettie
63.) Angels | Sustain my craft habit
There is a whole nativity set of felt ornament templates available to buy, but this little angel ornament is a free download. Isn’t it precious? As is the rest of the set!!
64.) Vintage Campers | House of Hawthornes
These little pink campers are one of my personal faves on the list. I’m digging the whole colorful retro camping package.
65.) Christmas Cacti | Dazzle While Frazzled
Cacti are all the rage. And personally, if given the choice between a prickly, for-real-type cactus, and a soft-colorful-non-prickly type, I think I gotta go with this felt variety.
66.) Christmas Pointsettas | Weekend Craft
Michelle used her Cricut for this craft. I don’t have one of those, but apparently, you can cut special felt sheets on them! Isn’t that awesome?! She shows you all the details of how to make one of these on her tutorial.
67.) Home State Felt Ornament | Crafty Staci
Isn’t this SUCH a great concept for a felt Christmas ornament?! Hawaii residents, not really sure how you guys would pull this one off…and New Mexico residents, yours may look a little boring, but for those of us in most of the other states, this would look fantastic hanging on the tree!

My daughter’s favorite animal is a pig. And since I was trying to create felt Christmas ornaments that could be removable from little houses, cases, nests and what-have-you, I thought a “pig in a blanket” would be a really fun idea to tackle. The little pig even has a curly-que little tail!
74.) Elf Boots | The DIY Dreamer
75.) Cactus Baubles | My Poppet Makes
I thought these little cacti were such a cool and original idea! Look how she made the spikes! And the felt pots are precious.
76.) Mini Christmas Banner | Oleander and Palm
