How to Make a Whimsical Felt Tree

These aren't your typical Christmas trees! Make a Whimsical Felt Tree, complete with charming accents like felt flowers, buttons and striped baker's twine. Use pretty pastel felt and display them all winter long, or opt for bold red and green to match the rest of your Christmas decor.
  • 1 Cover the cones with felt

    Cover paper mache cones with 2 colors of felt. Scallop the edges of the top piece of felt for an extra accent. Then, make a felt flower with a pom pom center and glue it onto the cone.

  • 2 Embellish cones

    Embellish the cones with buttons, baker's twine and trim.

  • 3 Decorate spool

    Glue the wood disc to the bottom of a spool. Cover the spool with coordinating felt and trim. 

  • 4 Glue on poms

    Glue tinsel poms along the bottom edge of the cone.

  • 5 Attach the cone to the spool

    Insert the cone into the paper mache cone. Push the end of a paper straw into the center of the cone. Glue the other end of the straw into the center of the spool.
