Directions:

Print, Draw or use Cricut Design Space to make the cone shape. If you’re going to hand draw the cone, you can click on the Hand Draw link above and trace image from your screen onto paper. Then trace it onto the cardstock or cardboard. Otherwise, use the links above to access the cone. Once you’ve gotten the cone, drawn, printed cut it out. If you’re using Cricut this step is already done.

Next cut the same pattern out of one of the white felt sheets. You’re going to glue this to one side of the cone pattern. Next using the other sheet of white felt cut 6 – 1″ strips lengthwise (longest side). Then the remaining piece cut 1/2″ strips. When you’re done cutting the strips hold two strips together and a cut triangle edge or zigzagged. They don’t have to be perfect cuts it won’t be noticeable after you’ve completed the tree. See image above for a visual of what I mean. Set aside.

Fold the cone shape with the felt side in and secure in place with your glue gun. Start at the bottom of the cone and add a strip of the white felt to the cone.The first strip should hang over the bottom edge some. See image below for a visual. Secure them into place with your glue gun. Continue this until you’ve gotten about 1/4 of the way to the top point. This is where you’ll notice that the triangles seem big for this area. You’re going to use the 1/2″ strips to finish up the tree.

As you can see from the above image I used a scrap piece of cardstock for my cone shape. You can use anything that is sturdy. Old cereal boxes, Amazon shipping boxes, post office priority boxes all work great. You’re going to cover the inside and outside of the cone so the writing or designs won’t matter.

The tinsel tree next to my felt tree is super easy to make as well. It’s the same concept with the cone, but instead of using felt you’re going to wrap a tinsel garland around it. Both of these Christmas crafts are very inexpensive to make and can be done within an hours time.
