Hi friends! I’m Brandy from BD Design
, where I blog about all of my favorite ideas from home decor to yummy recipes to party planning to simple DIY’s. Christmas is the holiday I look forward to most when it comes to decorating! There are so many ways to incorporate the magical spirit of Christmas in your home but it usually comes with a high price tag. So when I made these DIY felt Christmas trees for under $10 I couldn’t wait to share them with you.
Here’s what you need to make your own:
– Styrofoam 12″ cones
– 5 sheets of green felt
– 2 bunches of artificial red berries
– 4 inch wood dowel
– 2 circle wood pieces
1. Stain your wood dowels and wood bases with a dark stain of your choice. 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. I used 4 sheets of felt. Starting from the bottom and working your way up, glue each leaf to the cone.
3. Take the bunch of berries and cut each berry of and hot glue them to the felt.
