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.
