Felt Christmas Trees

I shared these fun little guys on I {heart} Nap Time for her Crazy Christmas Crafters. I didn’t want anyone to miss out so here are my felt Christmas trees.  These little guys are so much fun to have around and there are so many things you can do to make them your own.  Here’s the basics of what you will need.

  • Wool Felt in various colors (I used a dark green, light green and a white.  I used one sheet of 18×18″ of each color to get all three of my trees made.)
  • Styrofoam cones in various sizes
  • cutting board and rotary cutter
  • sewing machine
  • glue gun

 

First off, I cut my wool felt into various sized strips from 3″-4″ for each color.

Then I wrapped the felt around the cone to get the shape for the felt to be cut into.  You will want to make sure to get some curvature with your felt.  This part is very tricky, but once you get it down it should work out okay for you.

Then I layered my felts on top of each other and figured out the way I wanted them sewn together.  I wanted my seam to show so I made sure to sew it so they would.  (Notice that I have curve to my strips now.  This helps them fold around the cone better.)

Once I got all my strips sewn together, I pinned one side down to make sure I had everything looking ok.  There is some give with the felt so I was able to stretch it here and there as needed.

Once I had everything the way I wanted, I ran a strip of hot glue down the inside seam, pulled and tucked a little more and ran another strip of hot glue down to tack down the outside seam.

I cut out a cute little star to top the trees and there you have it.  A fun little felt forest.  I sure love them!
