Decorate Your Holiday Table!

You will need:

  • enough felt for (2) 8-shaped pieces per person
  • contrasting felt for scarf
  • neutral colored felt for face
  • gel pen or sharpie to draw in face
  • flower designed material, or felt of a color to draw flower on
  • stuffing for each doll/ornament
  • ribbon to attach at top of doll


Here’s how to make these lovely Matryoshka Doll Ornaments!

Step 1: Cut out two matching 8-shaped pieces (larger on bottom) of felt for each doll.

Step 2: Cut out a fish shape out of a different color felt. (This is a scarf for the doll) Then cut a circle out of the middle.

Step 3: Cut a circle(use peach or brown, depending on the skin color you want) a little larger than the hole in the middle of the fish shape. Glue this onto the fish shape, then glue the fish shape the “top” of one of the 8-shapes.

Step 4: Cut out a flower shape, and glue this to the bottom of the 8-shape. (This is a great place to locate the name of the person you are making the place-marker for!)

Step 5: Use a gel pen or Sharpie to draw eyes and a mouth.

Step 6: Use blanket stitch to sew the two 8-shapes together; stop about 3/4 of the way around and put stuffing in it, then continue and knot off when finished.

Step 7: Sew a ribbon on to the top to complete the ornament.
