How to Make Felt Tree Decorations

My tree has been looking a little bare since deocrating it at the weekend, however since watching the Great British Sewing Bee, I have been inspired to make my own decorations. I’ve used felt to make mine with, and they took no time at all! Here’s how I made them –

Felt Tree

You will need-

How to make

  1. Start by drawing out a tree shape onto plain paper and cut out, this will act as your template.
  2. Pin your drawn template onto the felt and cut out two trees.
  3. Cut a length of twine, approximately 15 cm long (the length will depend on how long you want to have the string). Sandwich the twine between the two felt trees.
  4. Make sure all the edges of the tree match and pin both together, and that the twine is kept sandwiched in between the two.
  5. Stitch around the edge of the tree making sure to remove the pins as you go around. Try to keep the stitching no more than 5mm away from the edge of the felt.
  6. Once you have finished stitching, cut off any loose threads and hang in pride of place on your tree!

Hobbycraft Content Marketing Assistant, I'm in love with all things craft, vintage and floral. I spend my spare time visiting craft fairs in the south on the look out for something that's a little bit different. When not out exploring by foot I'm on my bike riding around the country side or down by the beach.
