Christmas tree tutorial

I am so excited to share with you the EASY instructions on how to make this felt glittered tree. I really am super happy with the way they turned out.

Here is what you need:
  • Felt  (I used white)
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Craft glue
  • Clear glitter
  • Styrofoam cone  (or any cone shaped thing)
Note: I didn’t use a Styrofoam cone I used a cone shaped wire tree from Dollar Tree last year, but I think they aren’t there any more. You can find foam cones at Dollar Tree or any craft store.
____________________________________________
Step one
Cut felt into large medium and small strips.
 cut 4 large strips (2 in wide)
cut 4 medium strips (1 1/2 in wide)
cut 2 small strips (1 in wide)
______________________________________
Step Two
Cut deep scallops into each strip

___________________________________
Step three
Glue along scalloped edge of each strip and glitter generously.

______________________________________
Step four
Hot glue each strip onto the cone starting with the large strips at the bottom and ending with the smallest at the top.

_______________________________________________
Step five
Cut a half flower shape (for tip of tree)
____________________________________________
Step six
Glitter and roll the half flower in a cone like shape. Glue this to the top for the tip of tree.
