We love that these trees have so much individual style and sparkle--depending upon who did the decorating! Straight and tailored, snowy and plain, fancy and sparkly....we love it all!

How We Did It

Felt Christmas Trees
"What shall it be today?," we wondered. "Buttons? Glitter? Ribbons? Sequins?"
Felt Christmas Trees
First we needed tree shapes. Maddie drew trees onto scratch paper, and then cut the shapes out. Felt can be difficult for a little girl to cut, so I used these templates to cut the felt.
Felt Christmas Trees
Madeleine wanted our trees sewn and not glued, so we sewed them up, leaving the tree trunk open at the bottom for stuffing.

We lightly stuffed the trees...then got down to decorating!

La la la, la la la la.... (Maddie did lots of humming and singing while we worked)...

We had to decide how tall our trees would stand on sticks, so we laid them down, and marked how long we'd cut the dowel--leaving it long enough so support our trees (inside) about half-way up. We put a bit of glue on the tree trunk, to keep the stands in place,,,

...then made our stands. For this, we just made a round ball of clay, and flattened it just a bit. Some were left as they were, and some were decorated with a bit of glitter glue.

And then just as we were finishing up, it began to snow! Here's our lovely winter wonderland...
