How to Make Wall Felt Christmas Tree


Don't have enough money to buy a Christmas tree?? This is not an excuse for not keeping the Christmas spirit at home, especially when we have children.

Creating a felt tree that we can stick to a wall is a fun and economical option that will sure gets us out of trouble when we are short on budget.

Seriously, this is super easy and super fun. And you’ll love watching your kids decorate their trees over and over again!

However you can still buy one ready made from Amazon HERE

Check out these ideas we've collected for you .. Look how simple it is to make one:

You Will Need:

How To:

  1. Fold the green felt square in half and use some chalk to draw the shape of a tree, so that both sides are symmetrical when unfolding ... The wider the tree is the more ornaments it can hold.
  2. Sew the buttons all over the surface of the tree. These will be the "hooks" or "hangers" to which the ornaments will be hung.
  3. To make the ornaments, use a glass to form some circles and cut them out. Decorate them by adding different patterns on them. Polka-dots, stripes, zigzags, pretty much whatever you want you can do.
  4. Now you want to either hot glue or sew on your ornament patterns.
  5.  And if you want to make some square ones or star ones or oval ones, be my guest. Get as creative as you want or keep it as simple as you need!    
  6. Sew a small thread or ribbon on the back of each ornament to be able to hang it.
  7. Stick the double-sided tape across the back of the felt tree. Then stick the tree on the wall (The wall should be clean and free of dust so that the glue of the tape works well)
  8. Place the ornaments by hanging them over the buttons of the tree
  9. If your kid is a younger toddler, and you think buttons will be a choking hazard you can make your tree more kids friendly without using them .. After making and decorating your ornaments, use this little bottle to make them stick! .. and here is how to use it: Lay your ornaments on some newspaper or something and then lightly spray. Let them sit for a bit and then they will easily attach to your tree.... You can use Velcro to stick the ornaments
  10. Now hang up your tree and have fun with your kiddos!
