Felt Christmas Tree

It’s that time of the year again to start pulling out all of the Christmas decorations. Putting up the Christmas tree is always so exciting with the kids, I can’t help but get excited as they pick out their favorite items for the tree.

This year, my youngest is still a bit of a liability when it comes to the Christmas tree so we will be putting up a baby gate to avoid any safety disasters.

I’ve created this felt Christmas tree to try to entertain her. It is the perfect alternative for her to touch and play with (without destroying the real Christmas tree, no doubt that will still happen, but maybe this will buy me five or six minutes of peace).

Felt Ornaments Templates

Instead of a standard felt tree, I’ve decided to add some of kids favorite characters to make it extra fun for the kids.  Between superheroes, Disney Princesses, Ninja Turtles, and Minions, I am sure the kids are going to love this addition to our Christmas decorations. 

Tip: You can also add a string and add these ornaments to your real tree too!

You can download the patterns for this craft from the Freebie Library. The patterns include a Christmas tree outline, You can also check out the step by step tutorial below.

How to Hang Felt Christmas Tree

Since posting this original post, I have gotten a number of questions about how to hang the finished tree onto the wall. I use 3M command strips to ensure the tree stays stuck to the wall and to ensure that I don’t damage the wall.

Step 5: Cut it out. Then cut some strips of remaining felt cloth to serve as tree accents. You can also stick the ornaments now (or stick it later when the tree is mounted on the wall) using velcro or masking tape. I prefer Velcro as it is easier for the kids to take them on and off and play around with the tree.

Step 6: Mount your felt Christmas tree onto your wall. I usually use command stripes, as they are a great way to mount the tree onto the wall without doing damage. Just make sure you following direction for removal or the strip will remove paint from the walls. Don’t forget to stick the Star ornament too!
