What you'll need

  • Jumbo craft stick
  • Brown acrylic paint
  • 3 shades of green felt, dark, regular and light
  • Gold felt
  • Felt glue
  • 8" piece of yarn
  • Pattern
Helpful Tip:

This project can be dressed up more by gluing sequins or beads onto the felt as lights or ornaments. You can use glitter glue to add shiny garland! For really young kids, cut out the pieces for them and let them glue everything together.

How to make it

  1. Paint craft stick brown and set aside to dry.

  2. Cut triangles from three different shades of green felt using the pattern (see image).

  3. Cut a star from the gold felt.

  4. Glue the felt triangles to the brown stick, starting at the bottom. Leave some of the bottom of the stick exposed as the tree trunk (see image).

  5. Glue the star to the top of the tree (see image).

  6. Fold yarn into a loop and glue to the back of the craft stick.
