Instructions

  • Print and cut out the template - this is a free download.
  • On the template you will find two different sizes, choose the size you want, cut it out, place on the felt and trace. You will need 2 parts for the tree (back and front), 1 rectangle for the trunk and a star shape.
  • To make the tree leaves part, prepare the needle with thread. Hold the 2 tree cutouts together, starting from the side, stitch them together with flat, blanket stitches. 
  • Pause stitching when you reach near the top of the tree. This is where the ribbon will be inserted.
  • Cut a piece of satin ribbon to the size you want then fold it in half. Insert the open ends of the ribbon between the 2 tree patterns, on the top end. Start to stitch again, making sure to catch this ribbon and continue to stitch down the other side of the tree.
  • Using your scrap felt pieces, stuff the tree inserting through the bottom opening.  Once the tree has been filled, grab your square piece of felt.

  • Insert about 1 cm of the rectangular felt piece between the tree parts, in the middle part of the bottom end. Continue to stitch along the bottom side to secure the stuffing and the tree base in place. Secure the ends of the thread and cut off any excess.
  • Attach colorful buttons to decorate the felt tree.
