Spread some joy this holiday season! Today we’re sharing the pattern and tutorial for these holiday décor felt letters. You can make your own “joy” or craft whatever word feels fitting for the holiday season. Make one or a whole bunch and decorate your home with some words that will put everyone in the Christmas spirit. If you like the idea of having some other felt decorations for Christmas, you could also craft our felt bulb ornaments

Joy to the World

There are so many ways you can use these holiday décor felt letters in your home. You could do what we did and adorn your felt word with ribbon and our crepe paper mistletoe (see pictures for inspiration). Our felt reindeer would be super cute with this, too!

Of course you can always set your felt word on your mantel. Or attach each letter to a string and hang it like a banner. If you do use your felt word as mantel décor, you could also make some holiday wall art to go along with it.

What word do you think you’ll make? When you’re ready to craft your holiday décor felt letters, download our alphabet pattern below. If you’re using a cutting machine, you can use the SVG file. And if you’re using scissors, we have a PDF template for you.

I’d love to see what holiday words you decide to make for the season—and how you style them! An easy way to share them with us is by posting pictures on Instagram or Facebook and using the hashtag #MadeWithLia. Happy holiday crafting ~ Lia and team
