Felt Christmas Tree Decoration

  1. Firstly, use the image as a guide to cut two Christmas tree shapes from the green felt squares.
  2. Take one gold tinsel pipe cleaner stem and bend three times as shown in the image.
  3. Using the yellow thread and needle, secure the gold tinsel down by stitching and wrapping the thread around the stem as you go.
  4. Next, using the yellow thread again, take the gold star gemstone and secure with a stitch as shown.
  5. Then, attach the red and white pom poms onto the tree ends using glue.
  6. Now, pin the two felt tree shapes together and stitch all the way round leaving a 2cm opening.  We used a blanket stitch.
  7. Use the 2cm opening to fill your felt Christmas tree decoration polyester stuffing and then stitch up.
  8. To finish, thread the red satin ribbon through the needle and pierce through the top of the tree, behind the gold star.
