I asked my daughter what kind of ornament she wanted to make and of course, she wanted to create a Peppa Pig Christmas Ornament for the tree. We made these wonderful Pigeon and Duckling ornaments from Mo Willem’s books last year and she wanted to make her own.
I love creating with felt because the color is great and it’s fairly easy to work with just not a four year old. I had my eight year old cut out the shapes and then my daughter glued together the felt pieces.
Pick your book, any book, my daughter loves any and everything from Peppa Pig the ornaments were inspired by her to make my daughter happy. She promptly requested to watch Peppa Pig after we were finished.

I drew an outline of Peppa Pig’s head on to paper so I had an idea what I wanted it to look like. Then I cut it out and then used it to cut out the head. There were scraps of felt that I used for the rest of the face because it didn’t really need much at all.
I used the beige felt for the ears and nose, the darker pink to highlight the nostrils, cheeks and mouth and then the black and white felt for the eyes. And then I used the silver ornament hooks to poke a hole through it and it’s ready to go.
These are some of our favorite Peppa the Pig books my daughter enjoys.
