Hexagon Flower Ornaments

**This tutorial is intended for personal use only.**

I am in love with these rainbow hexagon blooms. They're so yummy and petite and measure just under 2-1/2 inches.


To create these ornaments, I hand stitched hexagons together to form two 6-petal flowers.


With wrong sides facing each other, the hexagons were joined together using a ladder stitch.


I lightly stuffed the flowers with polyfill before closing the final seam.


A button was sewn to both sides of the flower center. To give it a slightly tufted look, the thread was pulled tight as the buttons were being sewn on.


They look so cute tucked between the branches of the Christmas tree.


Hope you're enjoying the holiday season!

Aloha!

Oh, the flowers are so cute! You have placed them on a tree. I can also picture them decorating a circular wreath on a front door.

Hope you & your hubby are feeling well!
