The idea for felt Christmas trees has been all over Pinterest recently, but my absolute favorite has been this version from Johnny in a Dress. I love the simplicity of the triangle for the Christmas tree as well as the addition of felt presents at the bottom of the tree!
This kid-friendly Christmas tree is such a fun idea because it works just like those felt boards you had in Sunday school…the felt ornaments stick to the felt tree. Then, when you want to move them, just take it off and place it somewhere else!
When I saw that felt was on sale for $2.99 per yard at JoAnn’s last night, I knew we had to give this a try. I bought 1 yard of green felt (although I could have done 3/4 a yard) and I had the rest of the colors of felt on hand from other projects.
Update: I do not recommend using pushpins to secure the felt onto the wall as this could pose a hazard to young children. I would recommend using command strips/hooks instead.
I estimated about how high I wanted it to be a cut a straight line across my yard of felt. Then I folded the felt piece in half and used a straight-edge to trace the angled cut.
I then used push-pins to attach it to the wall (if you’re reading this, Prince Charming, the holes are REALLY tiny). :) Once again, please do not use push pins as I did. Use command strips/hooks instead.
And then I cut out circles, using a cup for my template.
I left some plain and on others I used a hot glue gun to add stripes or polka dots.
At first, I planned to have the tree in our kitchen. But then it looked a little too cluttered, so I decided to put it just around the corner.
The boys love getting to decorate and redecorate their very own Christmas Tree!
