While the ornaments dry, cut out a star shape from a piece of yellow felt.


Apply adhesive strips

Apply adhesive strips to the back of the Christmas tree. I used UGlu adhesive because the strips are strong but also easily removable.


Decorate the tree

Stick the felt Christmas tree to the wall, then apply the ornaments and the star. The felt ornaments will stick to the felt tree without any kind of adhesive.
