One day while perusing Pinterest, I found several fun Christmas crafts that were on my level of craftiness. (Beginner) First up, this adorable felt Christmas tree. I checked out the link and it took me to a great blog called Apartment Therapy. Cute name, right? While I don’t live in an apartment, I still enjoyed the idea of having a small tree for the kids. This felt tree covered all my bases- small, not in the way, fun, and extremely easy and fast to make with my novice skills.
You can cut little strips to decorate the presents and ornaments if you would like, and hit it with a hot glue gun. No gun? No problem! Keep it simple without the add-ons. That way you can avoid the hot glue strings as you can see in my picture. (Although I heard that a blow dryer can make those strings disappear.)
If I have not expressed my deep love for the dollar tree enough, let me say it again. I LOVE THAT PLACE. Everything really is just a dollar!
I wanted to put a letter on each box to spell out NOEL, so I fired up the Silhouette machine, chose the ELEPHANT font, and bumped up the size to 288pt.
Last but not least, the most time consuming (but still easy) project, was more felt Christmas trees. This time for mommy, not the little girls. I also found this tutorial on Pinterest and decided to make my own.
Do you have any more fun & easy Christmas projects for me? I would love to hear about them!
