DIY: No-Sew Cocktail Ornaments

Make a friend their favorite drink... to have year round! These no-sew felt cocktail ornaments are the perfect gift because not only are they cute on a tree, they'll look great displayed all year.

What you'll need:
  • felt (I try to use wool felt as much as possible but that tends to get expensive)
  • thin cardboard (I always keep cardboard scraps when I come across them for projects like this)
  • hot glue
  • paper or cardstock for the template
  • rick rack or ribbon
  1. Create a template for the drink of your choice. If you don't want to freehand it, find a photo online and print it out. 
  2. Cut out your felt pieces as well as a cardboard piece for the inside (make this smaller).
  3. Glue your cardboad piece to your "glass".
  4. Add the ribbon or rick rack. 
  5. Now glue a piece of black felt to the back. Your cardboard and your ribbon should be sandwiched between the gray and the black at this point. 
  6. Trim the black felt so it's just slightly larger than the gray.
  7. Glue the "ingredients" of your drink to the front and you're all set!


  1. I love these! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Super cute! I think I just found my 2012 homemade gift idea for my sister-in-law. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thank you all! The best part is that these can be made year-round to decorate your house with your favorite drinks! Smaller versions would make great gift tags too.

  4. What a cute project! I love it so much that I decided to feature it in our roundup of handmade felt ornaments! Check it out here:
