DIY Felt Flower Christmas Tree

If you got a chance to see our Christmas Living and Dining Room tour the other day you may have noticed the little Felt Flower Christmas Tree I made for our coffee table…. and today I am back to fill you in on a few more details about how exactly this little guy came to be.

 DIY Felt Flower Christmas Tree

 

To make this you need:

 -a tree cone (I used one of my DIY 10 Cent Tree Cones)
- felt (I used 8.5×11″ sheets from both Michael’s and the Dollar Tree)
- a hot glue gun
- scissors

 

I made four different styles of felt flowers for this tree.  I learned how to make them following a few of the tutorials that I pinned on my “Getting My Craft On” Pinterest Board….  head over there to see these easy tutorials for yourself.

One of the best tutorials I read was this one by Rebecca at the Crafted Sparrow- she actually teaches you how to make five types of felt flowers in the same post!

Basically, I started by making a whole pile of felt flowers….

and then just glued them to my cone… trying it keep it fairly random – working from the bottom up…

Although making the flowers was (admittedly) pretty time consuming, I just did it while watching a movie one evening and that made the process a little more entertaining.  Once the flowers were made, gluing them onto the tree cone didn’t take very long.

And once it was finished I was glad I didn’t call ‘er quits half way through…

      Thank you Thalita- I love how it turned out but it was a little time consuming. You may want to start now to finish it for next year (kidding). I love all the texture so it was worth it!! Happy New Year to you!!

      Hi Kelly – to be honest, I had to do it in a few stages. I’m pretty impatient too but I knew I wanted to finish it. I had planned to do a felt flower wreath as well but the tree was enough for this year!! lol.
