{Tutorial } How to make a glittered felt christmas tree

Here is another tutorial for making a lovely Christmas Tree.  This tutorial is quite simple and should be easy enough for small children to participate in making these trees.  Why not make a bunch of them in various Christmas colors and arrange them on the dinner table as your center piece this year.  Give every child one to have for their own after dinner is over.

This tutorial is from Lorajean's Magazine and I hope you will visit her site and browse her other tutorials.

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.
 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)
