DIY Mini Felt Trees

It's nearly December! Get your home ready for the holidays with festive decor. One of the easiest ways to transform your space is with holiday accents for the mantle/windowsill/ledge.



Whether or not you have space for an actual Christmas tree, you can definitely DIY some mini felt trees, adding a bit of greenery to your room during the winter months. Let's face it you can't go wrong with shades of green for the trees, we also added a bit of texture using cork stoppers for the stumps. But don't feel limited you can add different felt accent colours to work with your palette.

Materials:

- 9"x 12" Felt Sheets- Hunter/Apple/Emerald Green
- Cork Stoppers
- Glue Gun
- Scissors
- Sharpie
- Templates










Step 1) Take your two tear drop templates and trace them onto the felt, we cut about a total of 80 pieces


Step 2) Take your semi circle template and create a cone shape, glue the ends together. Start gluing the more rounded tear drops at the bottom and use the longer tear drop shapes for the top of the tree. 

Step 3) Lastly take your cork stopper add glue generously on top and press the cone down onto it 


No home is ready for the holidays without a festive wreath and lights. Combine your mini trees with felt holiday wreaths and string lights! Bring a little extra magic to any room by adding felt to transform any space into the perfect holiday backdrop. For the full tutorial click on the images below.
