How to Create a Felt Tree
It takes only a few minutes to create a forest of felt trees! Gather these materials before you start: foam cones, colored felt, florists wire, glue, bells, trim and ribbon.
Step 1: Cut and glue felt
Cut two to four pieces of felt freehand, adding scalloped edges. Cut an additional piece of felt without a scalloped edge for your bottom layer. Wrap the bottom layer around the tree, trimming so it folds over the bottom edge slightly. Glue the felt to the foam. Repeat, gluing on remaining layers from bottom to top.
Step 2: Top with felt
Top the tree by snipping the felt, folding it over and gluing it to the top of the foam surface.
Step 3: Add a bell
Thread florists wire through a bell and bend the wire in half, bringing the ends together and sticking them into the top of the form.
Step 4: Decorate the tree
Wrap trims and ribbons around the tree, gluing as needed. We used velvet ribbons, lace and doilies to complete the festive look.
