The Pin Junkie: Felt Ribbon Candy Ornaments

Last week I shared a project for a garland I made with dollar store supplies.  That project prompted me to completely redecorate my little tree with a whole new theme which I'm calling "sugar and spice" which includes these felt ribbon candy ornaments.  Old fashioned ribbon candy always reminds me of my dad since it's one of his favorite holiday treats along with English toffee.

We always buy a big tree to decorate for Christmas, but it takes time to get it home, get it inside, and set it up.  Sometimes I get impatient and can't wait for the Christmas decorating to start, so I get out my little tree and decorate it with ornaments I've made.  This year I made these fun felt ornaments inspired by old fashioned ribbon candy.

Materials:
felt
rotary cutter
cutting mat and ruler
needle and thread
ribbon

How to Make Felt Ribbon Candy Ornaments

Cut strips of felt 9 inches long and 3/4 inch wide.  Cut three strips of felt for each ornament.  Then, stack the strips on top of each other, making sure to align the edges. 

How to Make Felt Ribbon Candy Ornaments

Fold the three layers of felt back and forth.  With a threaded needle, pull the thread through the folded layers of felt.  Add a piece of ribbon for hanging. Tah-dah!  They look like old fashioned ribbon candy!

Here's what my "sugar and spice" tree looks like this year.  
I think it still needs some candy canes and presents!

    1. Is it just me or is ribbon candy getting harder to find at the stores? The only place I've been able to find it was at a specialty candy store and that was a few years ago.
