The girls and I decided to make some felt Christmas trees and we have put a little tutorial together for you:) Jenna designed the templates and cut them out for us. These little trees look so sweet on the mantelpiece or you could attach a loop at the top of the tree and turn it into a Christmas tree decoration to hang on your tree… They are also awesome pin cushions for the festive season…
Cardboard Templates, large triangle and small triangle for base (we just recycled some old boxes for this)
Dimensions for triangles:
Large triangle: 5 inches tall, base 3 inches.
Small triangle: 3 inches on each side.
Cut out your templates from cardboard, one large one for the three sides and one small one for the base of your tree. Place your template on your felt and mark out three triangles for the sides. Mark out one small triangle of the base. Cut out your felt triangles and start sewing them together as seen in the photo below. We have used blanket stitch to sew up our trees, blanket stitch is so pretty and you could use a bright thread to make it stand out.
These three above were made by Jenna.
Erin attached a star and needlefelted some decorations onto hers as well as sewing her blanket stitch in a bright colour for extra effect…
