I love to make felt Christmas ornaments. You may have spotted a few of these in the past:
You know what you don’t see on that list? A tree! How have I never made a tree for the tree? Let’s fix that right now.

To make one of these you’ll need:
Trace two trees and two trunks onto the paper side of the fusible web. Cut out loosely and iron onto the appropriate felt colors.
Cut out on the tracing lines. Peel the paper off all pieces.
Press the two trunks with web sides together to fuse.
Lay out one tree on your ironing board with web side up. Center the trunk at the bottom, with the top of the trunk overlapping the bottom edge of the tree by 1/4”.
Lay the ribbon or cord looped at the top, with the ends 1/2” inside the tree. You can tie the ends together with a piece of thread if necessary to keep them together.
Top with the remaining tree, web side down, and press to fuse together.
Using the green embroidery thread, stitch around the edge of the tree. Try to catch the cord in your stitches to help hold it in place.
Switch to brown and stitch around the trunk.
Sew the buttons at the top of the tree, back to back.
Hang on your tree, or use as a cute gift topper.
These are so quick, I could make a whole forest!
