Felt Christmas tree centerpiece
These felt Christmas trees have such a simple, modern feel, and you can make as big or small of a forest as you like. You only need wine corks, lollipop sticks, and green felt, so it’s a budget-friendly Christmas craft as well. Here, I brushed the felt with “Snow-Tex,” a paint that gives a snow-like texture. This step is optional.
You will need:
- Green felt (in different shades, if desired)
- Mix of 4-inch and 6-inch lollipop sticks
- Wine corks
- Snow-Tex (optional)
- Paint brush (optional)
Choose wine corks that easily stand on end without wobbling. Carefully drill holes in the wine corks about three-fourths of the way into the cork. Use a drill bit about the size of the lollipop stick diameter (I chose the 9/64 bit). Insert a lollipop stick securely into the drilled hole.
Cut the green felt into strips of roughly 6-inches by 1-inch. Start at the base and tie a strip around the the lollipop stick with a single, tight knot. Fill the stick. Trim the edges of the felt so the felt diminishes in size from bottom to top.
If desired, brush some Snow Tex on the green felt and let dry.
TIP: If desired, add a small dab of hot glue to the top of the stick and attach a small bead to prevent the felt from slipping off the top.
Arrange varying-sizes of trees on a cake plate. For an extra touch, add some faux snow to the plate (optional).
Felt Christmas trees are simple to make with just a few, inexpensive supplies (hmm, I seemed to have plenty of wine corks around, too). Craft a whole forest, or just a few. Display on your table, or anywhere around the house. For a different look, try a rainbow of felt colors and glue silver beads to the “trees.” These trees will fit into any holiday scheme you have.
