DIY Doc McStuffins Ornament Supplies including glass balls, felt, pipe cleaners, glue, markers and paint. |


Step 1: Carefully remove the ornament cap from the glass ball ornament.  Pour some of the base paint inside the ornament and swirl around until completely coated.  Add paper snow to the paint for Lambie to give her a textured look.  Let the Doc McStuffins ornament dry.

Step 1 is to coat the inside of the glass balls you are choosing with paint. |

Step 2:  While the ornaments are drying in step 1, you can cut the embellishments from the felt.

Doc McStuffins Ornament

Make braids out of the brown felt and use a pipe cleaner piece to keep them stiff.  We show you the front and the back of the braids.  Cut a headband from the purple felt and a pink flower from the pink glitter foam.

For Doc McStuffins, use pipe cleaner and brown felt to make two braids for her hair. |

Lambie (Doc McStuffins Ornament)

Cut ears from the white felt and the center of the ears from the pink felt.  Cut the bow from the pink felt and cinch in the center, either with glue or with a small strip of the pink felt like we did here.

For Lambie, use pink felt to cut ears and cinch them with glue. |

Chilly (Doc McStuffins Ornament)

Cut a circle from the black felt to use as a base for the hat, cutting a circle out of the middle that will fit over the top of the ornament cap.  Cut a rectangular piece of the black felt and secure together with glue.  Then glue that to the circle to make the snowman’s top hat.  Glue a strip of green ribbon as the hat band.  Cut two pieces of blue felt to make the scarf.  Fringe the two ends of one piece and glue to the band of the other.  Paint stripes with light blue paint.

For Chilly, cut black felt pieces for the base of the hat, circumference of the hat, and top of the hat. Then use a green strip for the hat's band, two pieces of blue felt for the scarf, and then use paint to make light stripes on the scarf. |

Hallie (Doc McStuffins Ornament)

Cut two ears and two nostrils out of the purple felt.  Cut two teeth and a small rectangle out of the white felt.  Glue the white felt piece to a small piece of pipe cleaner, along the bottom edge.  Glue red ribbon towards to the top of the white felt piece and you now have the nurses hat.  Bend the red pipe cleaner into a pair of glasses.

For Hallie, cut purple circles for the nostril and white felt for the teeth. Use white felt and red ribbon for the hat and red pipe cleaner for glasses. |

Stuffy (Doc McStuffins Ornament)

Cut two nostrils and two dragon ears from the blue felt, making sure that you leave extra felt on the end of the dragon ears.  Wrap the extra felt on the dragon ears around a small piece of pipe cleaner and secure them with glue.

For Stuffy, cut small black circles for nostrils, and two long pieces with flaps with blue felt for the ears. Wrap the ears around pipe cleaner and glue in place. |


Step 3:  Replace the ornament caps on the Doc McStuffins ornaments.  Paint the outside face colors for Lambie and Hallie, the hair on Doc and nose on Chilly and glue on all of the felt embellishments on the characters.  Let them dry.

Step 3 is to glue everything on and paint the background for the faces on the ornaments. |

Step 4: Using the paint markers, draw their faces on.  Let them dry.

Step 4 is to draw the details of each face onto the ornaments with markers. |

Step 5: Tie ribbons to the top for hanging.  You may want to use different colors for each of the different characters represented on your Doc McStuffins ornaments.

The last step is to tie ribbons around the tops of each ornametn. |
