14. Felt angel
We have started with the simplest Christmas felt crafts and now move on to those that require a little more elaboration. Although if you think about it, it’s not that they have much mystery, in the case of the Angel with felt, the first thing we have to do is create the triangle for the body, the circle for the head and some small rectangles for the arms and legs. From there you will have to cut out the hair and some details for the dress in felt of different colors, as well as to shape the face. What if you put some little wings on his back? He’s a Christmas Angel for a reason! Stick each element in its place and leave it as it is or put a loop on it to help you hang it where you like.
15. Santa Claus: Craft with Felt
Making a felt Santa Claus won’t take too much work either. What you do need to be clear about is whether you want the whole doll or just the face so that you can prepare your template elements that you will later remember on the felt in the corresponding colors: red for the suit and hat, white for the beard, beige for the face and black with a bit of gold for the belt. If you are only going to make the face you can fill it and put a rope as a pendant. If you are going to create the entire figure, do it simply by adding small details to make it much more beautiful.
16. Felt mistletoe

We don’t miss one! The red and white felt candy cane will be very funny, especially for the little ones in the house.

Draw on a separate piece of paper or cardboard the elements that make up this goblin and go one by one to the filter in the corresponding color.
