Quick Christmas craft

Last year I had cut out lots of different Christmas tree’s out of different fabric and never got around to doing anything with them, then I realised I still hadn’t put up any craft tutorials as I had planned to so I thought I would share this super quick and super easy one.
This craft is perfect for children but could also be really fun for adults, although I would recommend decorating your trees a little more than I did, but I might decorate mine soon.
All you will need is:
  • All purpose glue
  • Ribbon
  • Felt (or other thick fabric)
  • And 15 minutes of your time.
Start by choosing the correct length of ribbon.

If you are going to hang it of something you may choose to make a hoop at the top possibly bottom of the ribbon.

Then using a template or even a cookie cutter, draw and cut out the amount of trees (or a different shape) out of your fabric.
Place the cut out shapes evenly along the ribbon, when you are happy glue them all down.
Wait a couple of minutes for it to dry and then they are ready to be hung. If you have some extra time why not try decorating them?
You can also make this to hang horizontally, as my younger cousin did with the one above. You don’t have to stick to Christmassy colours or even just trees try stars or candy cane shapes. You may also need to iron them lightly; the above one really does needs to be ironed!
Do you like my fairy lights? They are from Ikea and I love them!

Would you like to see more crafts or are you not really interested?
