No Sew Toddler Christmas Tree

Felt Tree with Ornaments the PERFECT toddler craft!

On the first day of Christmas my Mommy Gave to me…..
My very own Christmas Tree!.
(yeah, not quite how the song goes…. but it works for me!)

So a few months ago I pinned this felt tree to make for the Little Man this year.  Well, I remembered the idea but lost the pin so I tried to make it by memory…. I’d say it turned out pretty good!

Toddler Tree
Yep, that’s right… it cost me less than $5 to make and the Little Man LOVES it!!!  The BEST part is I did it in 30 minutes while watching TV… yeah, I’m a multi-tasker! Winking smile
What You’ll Need:

1/2 Yard of Green Felt (make sure you get felt and not fleece- ask the ladies in the craft department—they’ll know… why yes, I am speaking from experience (I did think felt and fleece were pretty much the same thing).  I paid 7.99 a yard… so basically 4 bucks. Smile

Then pick out some felt pages for your ornaments… they were on sale 6 for $1… so I got 6!
How to make it:


This is OHHHHH SOOOO SIMPLE!

Fold your green felt in half.  Then draw the outline of the tree…. the folded half should be the center of your tree- so you’re technically only drawing half a tree.

I know it’s a little hard to see in these picks… but you get the gist….right!?
Next, hang your cut out tree on the wall…. I just used some good thumbtacks that the Little Man can’t figure out… you could use double sided tape or velcro I’m sure.

Then, use the felt sheets to cut out ornaments.  TIP: Don’t get fancy like I did with some of these… the round circles work the best… the ornament ones won’t lay flat and the Little Man gets frustrated and won’t play with those.  The ribbon ones- although cute, if he puts it on backwards it won’t stick.  So, just stay with simple shapes.
The great thing is that felt sticks to felt so you don’t need anything to attach the ornaments to the tree!
