Felting Up a Tree
***I don’t know how but I failed to push PUBLISH on this post last night. My bad. So don’t be surprised if there is an onslaught of Bower Power posts in the next few days! PEACE OUT! oh and God Bless us every one…because it is the holidays****
Another easy Christmas tree craft for you to try your elfie hands at while preparing for the fat man’s arrival This time, it’s just as simplle as the pom-pom tree but just requires a few more straight pins and a little more time.
You start out with a styrofoam tree and some sheets of white felt – I recommend AT LEAST two….but three to four would be great for a really full looking tree. Oh and then you are gonna need pinking sheers and a sleigh full of straight pins. (heehee…sleigh, cause it’s Christmas….and because I’m a dork)
Then you cut your ‘leaves’….they are about an inch long and all different shapes, widths and sizes. I discovered that folding the felt in half or even in quarters helps reduce the cutting time.
Then you just take a pin and go around the tree filling in the space with leaves. I used yellow pins (because that’s all I had) but I really want to make this with a giant styrofoam tree (they were all sold out at Hobby Lobby because they put their christmas stuff out right after Easter!)
I kinda love it…I think I would love it more if I did three with this one as the smallest. Also – taking pictures of your bad boys in front of the tree with some serious bokeh makes me fall in love with it even more. Like I would totally pull a Noah and write 365 letters to this cute little thing.
Any more tree crafters out there? Any unique materials? Any tree felters? Not to be confused with tree feelers…because that’s just plain weird
