Felt Layer Christmas Tree

Since last year I’ve been seeing DIY for making small sized Christmas trees you can use to decorate your desk for example. They are so simple and cute to made I could let this year pass by without making them. I made both trees in less than 2 hours so is the perfect craft for a last minute decor.

Supplies:

  • Felt (dark green and blue)
  • Scissors
  • Cocktail Sticks
  • Circular Wood piece (30mm diameter)
  • Glue
  • Decorative Stars
  • Needle
  • Pencil

Each layer of the tree is made with a square shape smaller near the top. I started with a 12cm square and took 1cm each new square so, in the end, I got 12 squares from 12 cm to 1cm – from the bottom to the top. So I start drawing all the squares I need in the felt and them cut them out.

With the help of a needle open a hole in the middle of each square enough to insert the cocktail stick. Start from the bigger square up to the smallest leaving the same space between layers. I didn’t use any glue in this process but if the hole gets too big and the layer to wobbly you can ensure they stay in place with a bit of glue.

After placing the squares in place is time to glue the stick to the base this way your tree can stand up straight. I found these circular wood pieces at my local hardware store.

There is only one thing missing to be considered a Christmas tree: the star on top. I used 2 stars and glue then on opposite sides with the pointy side of the cocktail stick in the middle. And it’s done! Quick and easy Felt Layer Christmas Tree!
