Craft: Make a felt or paper ice skate holiday ornament

I have always found that a handmade ornament makes a great gift, allows me to spend time with family and creates memories. Each year when we decorate our tree, we hang our special ornaments and talk about when each one was made.

I hope you enjoy making this one as much as we did!

My daughter and I created two versions, one out of wool felt and the other out of paper.

The felt version is a bit complicated, but not so challenging that my 11-year-old with a stomach bug couldn't complete it.

The paper version is a great option for younger children who can use scissors and glue.

Parents may still want to lend a hand, because it's fun to make together!

Cut out the template pieces and trace each piece onto the appropriate color felt. 

 Here is the template to make the ice skate ornaments for yourself! Enjoy
