Christmas Tree With Vintage Car Ornaments Tutorial

Cute little cars and trucks with Christmas trees on top are all over in Christmas decor this year. Now you can make your own little car ornament with just a few basic supplies and in just a few minutes.

Step 1

Print out the PDF of the patterns for the ornament. This ornament is a bit large so if you want a smaller one, then just adjust your printer settings so that it prints smaller.

Trace the patterns onto the felt and then cut out the pieces of felt. You will cut 2 of the main body of the car pieces and 2 of the Christmas tree pieces.

Step 2

Add your embroidery details. You can keep this simple like in the example or you can add more elaborate designs.

The example has embroidery floss colors that coordinate with the felt which gives it a little bit of texture but you could use different colors to add a little more contrast or pop.

You could even do some fun personalizing by adding a family name or date onto the ornament somewhere.

Step 3

Lay down the back piece of the main body of the car. Cut a piece of embroidery floss to use for hanging the ornament. Tie a knot in it and glue it down on top of the back piece of the car. Alternately, you could use a piece of coordinating ribbon.

Step 4

Glue the front down onto the back of the car.  If you want to give your ornament a little more dimension, then you can add a little bit of Polyfil stuffing in the middle in between the front and back pieces before you glue them together.

Glue the front of the Christmas tree piece onto the top of the car.  Flip the car over and glue the back of the car onto the front one.

Great project to do with children.

I LOVE THIS!! Old-fashioned cars with freshly cut trees are one of my favorite holiday motifs! I will definitely be making this for Christmas

I love the image of the iconic vintage car carrying a Christmas tree tied to the roof. This project can be easily duplicated with a few pieces of colorful felt and a simple running stitch to secure them all together. Whether made as an ornament or even bit smaller as a package decoration it is really a sweet nostalgic idea.

Wow! This Vintage Car ornament is adorable- I want to make one for everyone on my list! Thanks for the great step by step instructions and photos.
