Felt Christmas Trees

Because these trees have a simple shape, they are quickly sewn together and using felt will guarantee that they also will not fray. Once they are sewn, they are simple to assemble.

Instructions:

Tutorial - Felt Christmas Tree 1
1. Print out the pattern so that the height of the tree is 14 cm and create a permanent template out of cardboard. Then cut out two 10x15 cm rectangles out of the felt and place them on top of each other. Place the template on the felt and then the ruler exactly on the edge of the tree and cut the shape out. Repeat for the two remaining sides.

6. Press the stick into the hole so that the bottom of the stick reaches the bottom of the hole. It is not necessary to glue the stick because the hole and stick are both 4 mm and the stick fits tightly into the hole. If it should wobble, you can add glue if you want.
