If you want to try making a felt trees for kids but don’t have the time to make all those ornaments, I’m here to the rescue! All you need is a Cricut Machine (I used the Maker machine but Explore and Air will do the trick) and the free link below (please note that you need a Cricut Access Membership to avoid paying additional fees to Cricut as well). Learn how to make this DIY Felt Christmas Tree for Kids with my free Cricut Make-it-now link!
I designed these ornaments in Cricut Design Space using some images from Cricut Access and making adjustments so the ornaments were easy to put together once all the pieces were cut. The stocking consists of 2 layers (white and red on top).
The gingerbread man consists of 2 layers (white with brown on top to create the bow and buttons).
And the snowman consists of 3 layers (black for the back, red for the buttons and white for the front).
The Cricut Free Link includes access to my 12 images in different colors.
DIY Felt Christmas Tree for Kids with Free Cricut Make it now link
- 1 Yard Green Felt (to make tree)
- Various other felt sheet colors (red, blue, yellow, orange, white, black, brown, etc) – 2 sheets per color should suffice
- Cricut Maker Machine (you could use Cricut Explore or Air for this as well, but FYI, I used the Maker Machine)
- Free Cricut Link to make it now in Cricut Design Space (get it in my private library)
- Green masking tape (to hold the tree to wall)
- Wrapping paper or newspaper (optional – to make a tree template)
1.Use the wrapping paper or newspaper to cut a large tree template. I did this step first to make sure my tree turned out the way I wanted without messing up the felt. You could also cut out 3 large triangles to form a tree.
2. Use the template to cut the green felt in the tree shape. I used green masking tape to attach to the wall but you could try command strip or other methods.
3. Cut the felt ornaments using my free Cricut link.
4. Glue the ornament layers together (if needed).
5. Let the little ones have fun playing with their new tree!
You can also make a little bag to hold the ornaments when not in use (maybe I’ll do a future post with one soon!).
