These cute felt trees are everywhere and I have wanted to make one for my girls for a long time, but every single one I have looked at required a lot of cutting and sewing. I wanted my girls to be able to start having fun right away, so I came up with a tree that is just as cute and takes less than 30 minutes to pull together!
You will need:
- a large piece of green felt
- good scissors
- buttons or small ornaments
- white crayon
- sticky back velcro
- a felt board (we love and use a Little Partners Tri-Side)
Fold a piece of green felt in half. Use a white crayon to sketch out half of the tree on the felt.
Cut out the tree.
Find an assortment of buttons or small ornaments that will fit on your tree. I found these really awesome Christmas light buttons. If you buttons have loops on the back use a pair of wire cutters to trim them loop off. Place a small piece of velcro on the back of the button. Use the rough side of the velcro so that it will stick to the felt tree.
My kids play with our Christmas tree on a large felt board. We love this tri-side from Little Partners because not only is there a big felt board, but there is a basket at the bottom to keep all of the pieces together when they aren't playing.
