Felt Cone Christmas Trees

Last week I got together with some of my girlfriends and had a fun craft night. We decided to get some styrofoam cones and transform them into Christmas trees using various fabrics, ribbon, beads, etc. This is what I created:



What You Need:

  • Styrofoam trees in various sizes
  • Felt
  • Ribbon
  • Glue

How To Make It:

  • Cut felt strips - one straight edged and the others with the bottom edge scalloped - enough to cover tree.
  • Glue straight strip to bottom first, then layer over with the scalloped edge felt strips until you reach the top.
  • Cut a circle of felt and glue to top of cone.
  • Decorate using felt flowers, ribbon rosettes, beads, etc.
These trees turned out really cute and were super simple to make!


Happy Holidays!
