Christmas is coming and the crafts are happening. If you have little ones running around your house, here is a project for you!
I’ve seen several felt Christmas trees on pinterest so this isn’t really a new project, but I wanted to show you how I did mine to help inspire you!
I had a large piece of green felt that I cut into a Christmas tree shape (fold in half and cut a tree shape). I then stuck the tree onto the wall using Command mounting strips. I was pretty concerned that the kids would rip the tree right off the wall, but after about two weeks we are still good. But if you have the type of children that will immediately rip things off the wall, you may need to experiment with something else.
The ornaments came from Michaels. I found a kit for making a garland that was basically a set of felt Christmas shapes. These worked perfectly. Obviously you could cut your own, but this was easier for me.
Finally, I added a garland that I found in the Target dollar spot. I used more Command hooks and attached one on either side of the tree. The pom pom garland can then be hooked onto it. My one-year-old doesn’t get this at all but the three-year-old does. So you may or may not want to use this with your kids.
I’ve been storing the ornaments in some Christmas gift boxes at the base of the tree. They look pretty and also add some fun for the little boy who loves opening and closing boxes.
