I think we are all looking for some decor items we can make easily with our Cricuts and stash of supplies, right?
This idea came from just that. My stash of supplies and needing something tall on my mantel. The good thing is you can make these any size you want.
Here is a quick video to give you a close up of the Easy Felt Tree Decor
Supply list for the Easy Felt Trees
- Felt (I used the stiff sheets from Hobby Lobby)
- Wooden dowels
- Spools for base
- SVG for Tree Shape
- AMAZON SUPPLY LIST (#ad) Let’s you see the products in different sizes.
I used the rotary blade on my Cricut Maker on the tree cuts for the felt. I used paper for my stars and the glitter paper worked well with the regular blade.
I cut the 2 dowels at 13″ and one at 10.5″ long. They were really snug fit so I didn’t need to glue them in the spools.
IDEA: You could paint the dowel and spool if you want to but I liked the unfinished wood look.
Cut out the tree(s) using this SVG.
The hardest part for me is always picking the paper or product to cut. Next, I want to try burlap trees and add a buffalo plaid on the bigger one. So cute, right??
To glue the trees to the dowels I used hot glue. Try to get the dowel almost to the
Add ribbon and greenery if you want to at this time.
That’s about it. This one is really simple and this pattern can be cut if you don’t have a Cricut too. There’s a PDF in the file you can print, trace and cut from.
Also, this would be fun for a kid project (Girl Scout or Boy Scout, and you could donate them to a nursing home or use for Christmas gifts for mom when done).
Have you started your Christmas DIYs yet? I never feel like there is enough time to get them all done. Probably cause I have so many fun DIY ideas. How about you?
