I decided that instead of having a battle over the littles tearing up the real tree this year,
they needed a tree of their own to play with!
Now they can decorate and more importantly UN decorate their tree as many times as they please.
(This is some serious entertainment... it just MAY have to stay out all year long!)
I started out by cutting a triangle then I cut out different size squares for presents and embellished them because all every Christmas Tree HAS to have presents under it, right?!
I grabbed my hot glue gun and glued the presents to the tree so they cannot be removed.
Hot glue LOVES felt!
Then I cut out different ornaments and lights, some plain, some with dots, some with stripes!
(have fun with it!)
Slap those cuties onto the Felt Tree and...
...now the littles have their own tree to do with whatever they please!
If all goes as planned, your tree will remain in tact through the Christmas Season!
How did you attach the tree to the wall?
I actually used little dots of hot glue since the wall is brick. The hot glue peels right off the brick! Other readers have suggested Command Strips or double sided stick tape, but I have not tried these ideas.
How do you get the ornaments to stick to the tree?
Felt sticks to felt!
How much felt did you use to make the tree?
About one yard.
The tree measures 36 inches tall and the base of the tree is 29 inches wide!
