Ruffled Felt Christmas Tree
This little felt tree was super easy to make, and we will enjoy it for many future Christmases :)
Here's how I made it.
*A ton of green felt (I used dark and light-get about 8 sheets of each to be safe)
*A styrofoam cone (get it in the garden section-not the craft section-waaay cheaper option), this one is 12" tall
*Yellow felt for the top (with optional embroidery floss + stuffing)
1. Cut out a bunch of circles of green felt.
2. Fold a circle in half twice, then pin in whatever pattern you want onto the tree form.
3. Repeat a gazillion times.
This is a fun craft to do while you are watching a movie or something, as it is sort of time consuming.
If you want to make a star for the top, just cut a 2 stars out of some yellow felt. You can use a template if you want, but I just drew it (not as precise, but more charming, I'm sure). Then stitch it together and stuff it with batting if you want to add some volume.
So cute :)
