This is why I love Pinterest. I saw this idea on there a while ago and just had to do it for Littlebit this year. I knew she’d be mega interested in the real Christmas tree and thought I could use this one as a diversion, it’s working so far!
- a large piece of green felt
- various coloured felts
- scraps of material
- fabric scissors
- tailors chalk
- Christmas craft kit including pipe cleaners, pom poms and foam cut outs
- a selection of cookie cutters
- wobbly eyes (for the gingerbread man)
- hot glue gun
I folded the felt in half lengthways, marked it up with tailors chalk then cut the tree shape out.
I used cookie cutters as templates for my “baubles” and then got creative with the colours, bits and bobs and glue. Really easy and done in about an hour and a half, yet Littlebit has had hours of fun out of it already and it’s only the 7th December.
