need a last minute christmas present? or just want to bring some cheer to your holiday decor?
check out these felt christmas trees! they’re fun and easy to create, and will put you in the holiday spirit in no time!
simply glue layers of felt over a styrofoam cone, and voila! cut the felt in an arch to match the size of the cone and trim edges with decorative scissors or rotary cutters with scallop, wave, or zigzag blades to add even more visual interest. add as many or few felt layers as you like, and experiment with your favorite colors. wool blend felt was used here, but any type of felt will do.
to decorate the tree, gather a collection of colored pearl head pins and various sizes and colors of sequins. stack a combination of the sequins on the head pin and push the head pin into the foam. scatter the “ornaments” as desired and you’re ready to sing carols and drink hot cocoa!
non-traditional colors for holiday decorations are so fun…pink, green and turquoise lend a different feel to holiday decor. say, why not group an entire forest of these felt trees in various sizes on a mantel or cake stand sprinkled with glittering snow?!?
wait…you hear that? chestnuts roasting on an open fire…
