Anybody who has even walked past a craft night gathering probably has a box of felt stashed away in the closet. They might even have a glitter stick or two. Good news: That's pretty much all you need for this simple DIY.

If you're celebrating Christmas this year, make good use of your hidden craft box and have a great time with your favorite kids by making a felt tree with its own glitter ornaments. It'll keep little hands interested and occupied — and you'll be able to say you decorated for the holidays.
