Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Felt Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas!!
I mean Happy Pinterest Monday!!
Whoops.
I have been feeling very Christmas-y lately
and have been itching to do that felt Christmas tree that is all over Pinterest.
And guess what I did!
And I love it!!!
I am so glad AP over at I Love You More Than Carrots  and Keep Calm & Carry On,
The Gingerbread Blog has done this link up for Project Pinterest!
It is defiantly my kick in the booty to get this pin done.
I am so happy with how it turned out too!




I think my tutorial may be a little easier than the one I have seen floating around Pinterest world,
and I am going to provide you with some little extras so keep reading.


Supplies:

-Green felt (half of a yard)
-fun colorful pieces of felt (the squares can be purchased at Joann's for very cheap)
-Yard Stick
-Sharp scissors
-Sharpie
-Cups of different circumferences
-Glue gun if you want to get really crafting with it


Lay out the big piece of green felt.
Trace a bit triangle on it using your yard stick and sharpie.
Cut it out using sharp scissors.



Now, trace circles using cups of varying circumferences.
Draw as many circles as you want as ornaments.
Cut them out.

If you want add some extra fun ornaments then you can make some candy canes ornaments,
you can also add some polka dots and stripes to your ornaments.
I decided to make some ornaments chevron too for an extra punch of sass.
This is where the hot glue gun comes in handy.
You do not have to glue the pieces on but if you want them to stay,
I would.

Presents under your tree are a must, cut some large squares and don't forget the bows!



Final product with with the Star and all!
The bows, polka dots, stripes, chevron stripes and star were all hot glued.


This Christmas tree is C approved!

Your sweet face will love this,
and so will you!
It will keep them entertained for hours for a bit.

I love this! It was on my to-do list for last year but never got done (the no-sew ruffled tree skirt and being 36 weeks pregnant at Christmas meant my to-do list had to have some things taken off of it)
