A Special Christmas Tree Just For Kids
Keep those tiny hands off of breakable keepsake ornaments by giving them their very own tree to play with! Kids will love decorating and re-arranging this kid-size felt Christmas tree.
Cut out the tree
Fold the green felt in half. Draw the outline of the Christmas tree along the fold, then cut out the tree shape.
Create ornament template
Draw the shape of an ornament on card stock, then cut it out.
Cut out the ornaments
Use the card stock ornament as a template to cut ornament shapes out of the colored felt.
Decorate with puffy paint
Use the glittery puffy paint to paint designs on the felt ornaments, then set the ornaments aside to dry.
Cut out the star
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.
