What you need
Red Embroidery Thread
3 inch (7.5cm) Green Ribbon
9 white buttons
You can follow the measurements below or make your decoration any size you wish.
Cut 2 circles with a diameter of 3.6 inch (9.2 cms) for the middle section. Using a blanket stitch, stitch the two circles together. You could also glue these if you do not have sewing skills. Cut 18 circles with a diameter of 1.6 inch (4 cm)for the outer circles.
Sew them together using a blanket stitch as you did for the middle one. Do this 9 times. Sew each one to the main circle as shown.
Embellish your ornament with the buttons around the edges.
Add a felt cutout to the middle – we created a present in using glitter felt and green ribbon.
You could also create this decoration using ready made felt cut outs or iron on Christmas patches. Sew the ribbon onto the top to finish.
