DIY Felt Christmas Tree

DIY Felt Christmas Tree - Craft Tutorial

I saw some similar felt Christmas trees on Pinterest this week and immediately fell in love with their whimsical Dr. Suess-esque quality.  I thought they would be perfect to recreate for my coffee table which is sadly barren of any holiday decorations.  They fill the space quite nicely and were simple to put together.

To make your own felt trees, you’ll need:  Felt, bamboo skewers, pom-poms, wine cork.  Start by cutting a 1-inch circle from your felt, and then continue cutting gradually larger circles (approximately 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch larger).  I used 11 circles for the large tree, 8 circles for the medium tree, and 5 circles for the small tree.  But you can definitely add more if you would like a fuller look.  Once your circles are all cut, skewer them on to the bamboo stick through the center.  Space out the circles to your preferred look.    Add a pom pom on top, and use a cork cut horizontally as the base.  To make smaller trees, cut your bamboo stick to your preferred size.  That’s it!
