Felt Christmas Tree Craft for Kids

A few years ago, I found some green felt yardage at the thrift store. Trying to think of how I could use this for the holidays, I came up with the idea to make Christmas Trees with my students. 

Materials:

  • green felt or fleece or other stretchy green fabric
  • toilet paper tubes
  • cardboard
  • hot glue–for adult only
  • Elmer’s glue
  • plastic beads or sequins
  1. Hot glue one toilet paper tube to the middle of a piece of cardboard.
  2. Cut one 6-inch round, one 5-inch round, two 4-inch rounds. For younger children, trace circles for them to cut.
  3. To affix them to the tube, score an X in the middle of each round and stretch them over the tube.
  4.  Make cone shapes for the top of the tree and affix with hot glue.
  5. Hot glue a yellow star to the top–use yellow foam.
  6. Let each student decorate a tree using white paint, plastic beads and glitter.
  7. Have the children pour Elmer’s glue to the cardboard base and give them a handful of poly fiber fill to use as snow.
Each child’s tree is unique and quite charming!
