Felt Christmas Tree Decorations

DIY Felt Christmas Tree Ornament

These trees are really simple to make and look cute hanging on the Christmas tree. You’ll need a few things – felt, buttons/beads, ribbon, thread and toy stuffing – but you don’t need much sewing ability to make something quite effective. Find the guide for Felt Christmas Tree Decorations here.

Gingerbread Christmas Tree Decorations

Gingerbread Christmas Trees

I wanted some tree decorations that looked like real gingerbread, but that would last year after year. So I created a little craft project using non-edible cinnamon dough. They even smell festive too! Find the guide for Gingerbread Christmas Tree Decorations here.

Folk Art Christmas Tree Cross Stitch

Folk Christmas Tree Cross Stitch

Download this simple folky cross stitch pattern and create a frameable festive piece for your home. You’ll need to supply your own fabric and thread, but this means you can stitch it in your own choice of colours. Download the Folk Art Christmas Tree Cross Stitch Pattern here.

Pastry Christmas Tree Centrepiece

Pesto Pastry Christmas Tree

I made this tear-and-share pastry Christmas tree with pesto filling a few years back, and it looked great on a Christmas party table, as well as being delicious. You can also make a dessert version with Nutella-filling as a sweet alternative. Get the Pastry Christmas Tree Recipe here.

Fingerprint Air Dry Clay Christmas Tree Ornament

Get the whole family involved to create these effective keepsake tree ornaments from The Mad House. They’re colourful, fun, and oh so simple to make. Find the guide for Fingerprint Air Dry Clay Christmas Tree Ornaments here.

Calligraphy Flourish Christmas Trees

I love calligraphy, and Christmas is the perfect time for using this skill on gift wrap and Christmas cards. As an alternative to lettering, follow The Postman’s Knock’s tutorial for creating Christmas trees using calligraphy flourishes. Is it me or would these make the perfect home made gift tags? Find the Calligraphy Christmas Tree tutorial here.

I love knitting projects – especially cute mini ones that can be completed in a few sittings.
