DIY Felt Christmas Trees with Holly Berries

DIY Felt Christmas Trees – these sweet little trees cost me around $10 to make and they look so festive on my buffet table.

My FIRST DIY Christmas post of the season!! Yay!! I might be on top of Christmas over here on the blog but as for my house…well, that’s  different story 🙂  If you follow me on Instagram, I have been showing my “stories” of the never ending pile of Christmas decor that I need to put up. I need to kick it into gear over here! One of the things I can’t wait to display are these cute little trees I made last year but never posted about. The green and red are just super classic and can pretty much go with any type of decor style.

Materials needed to make DIY Felt Christmas Trees:

– 4 inch wood dowel
– 2 circle wood pieces
1. Stain your wood dowels and wood bases with a dark stain of your choice. I used  Minwax Stain in the color Jacobean. Wipe dry with a soft cloth. Drill a hole in the center of the base for the dowel to fit inside of. I added a drop of hot glue in both the base and the cone to make everything more sturdy.
 2. Next take your felt and cut A LOT of leaves. I think for these 2 trees I cut about 70 leaves which turned out to be 4 sheets of green felt. Starting from the bottom and working your way up, glue each leaf to the cone. Remember this tip because I learned the hard way 🙂

3. Take the bunch of berries and cut each berry off of the stem and sporadically hot glue them to the felt.
