Funky Felt Christmas Tree
- a Dollar Store transformation -

One of the 12 Days of Christmas projects featuring threads in the "Make Mine 3-D" holographic thread set from Kreinik

Decorate this funky felt Christmas Tree with fun holographic threads. Dollar Store supplies make it fast, but you can also make it all from scratch. Put your own twist on the decorations by adding jewelry, buttons and any other ephemera.

Materials needed:
• Dollar Store felt Christmas tree*
• Threads: (we used threads in the Make Mine 3-D: Holographic thread set by Kreinik)
 Kreinik Fine #8 Braid holographic color 026L Punchy Purple
 Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon in holographic colors like 002L Chromo Gold, 001L Solar Silver
• #22 Tapestry needle
• Dollar Store miniature round ball ornaments
• glue gun or fabric glue

• If not using a purchased felt tree, make your own by using the Tree Template and two pieces of white felt, hand sewn together with white sewing thread and with some stuffing inside. Make a star out of yellow felt and sew or glue to the top. Hot glue it to a wooden stand painted green or brown to be the tree base.

Instructions:
1. Embellish your felt try first by using the Fine #8 Braid in a running stitch to replicate garland.
2. Sew an outline on the star with the Fine #8 Braid in the running stitch.
3. Wrap the miniature ball ornaments with colors of 1/8" Ribbon. Use your needle to tuck the ends into the center of the ball. Hot glue the balls to your felt tree.
4. Continue embellishing as desired. We added felt dots on the tree, and bows and pompoms to the tips of the branches. Have fun embellishing and decorating your tree!
