Felt Christmas Tree TUTORIAL {by Tatertots and Jello}

Today we basically have a celebrity guest blogging with us--a crafting celebrity, that is!

Jen, of TT&J is best known for her neato subway art projects and burlap creations--and for being the sweetest blogger ever!

She has also played a HUGE roll in putting my little blog on the map in the blogging world--and for that I will be forever grateful!

She is also one of my FAVORITE people to follow on facebook because she always posts the BEST ideas from other craft bloggers!

And today, we are blog swapping {hip hip hooray}!
Head over to TT&J to check out my latest Anthropologie Inspired Necklace Tutorial {the post won't be up until later this afternoon}

And now I hand you over to the incredible Jen!


Hello Little Miss Momma readers!!
I'm Jen from Tatertots and Jello and I am so excited to be here!

Can I tell you how much I love Ashley??
She is so honest, funny, talented and adorable!!

I'd love to share a little project I made recently--
Whimsical Felt Trees!!

I am loving felt lately. I saw a tutorial from Thompson Family Life and fell in love with her felt trees. I just had to make some!! Danielle has a fantastic tutorial. I did a few things differently. One thing is that in addition to using felt, I found some flannel in different colors that I used on the cones.
I found the ribbon at Hobby Lobby. I used some scrapbook brads as embellishments.

You will need:

Felt -- at least 2-3 different colors for each tree that you make. You can also use flannel, but it is thinner so keep that in mind.

Glue gun

Styrofoam Cones


Vintage buttons or scrap booking brads.


• I found the easiest thing to do was wrap the whole cone in one felt or flannel first. Then once that layer is glued on, you can add another layer or two of felt.

• Then you can add ribbon and buttons or brads over the layers of felt.

• The last thing I did was cut a small circle to fit over the top of the cone.

• If you don't want to use Styrofoam cones, you can use scrapbook paper and roll it up so that it cone-shaped. This would be much cheaper. Then make a bottom out of scrapbook paper as well and glue it together. Cover the bottom with felt as well.

• To make the scallops, you can trace around a small glass or something round, or you can hand cut the felt. I also used pinking shears.

They are so bright and colorful on my whimsical family room mantle.

Thanks for letting me come over, Ashley!!!



Aside from being a crafty superstar, Jen is GORGEOUS, right?!
Be sure to stop by Tatertots and Jello later this afternoon, because I will be showing you how to make this fun necklace:

And then head over to Under the Table and Dreaming to enter the Little Miss Momma Etsy Shop GIVEAWAY!
Happy Crafting!
