mini decorated tree

Bring this cute little tree to life with handmade felt ornaments. What a fun activity for the family to do together this year!
Step 1

First, click here for the template and print, then cut out the pattern. Set aside.

Step 2

Cut pieces of pink felt about 4" [10.16 cm] long, then fringe the ends to make scarves. Tie the scarves onto branches of the tree.

Step 3

To make the mitten garland:
- Trace the mitten pattern onto different colours of felt and cut out the shapes.
- Cut a piece of yarn 70" [177.8 cm] long.
- ADULT: Hot glue the mittens onto the yarn, spacing them about 2" [5.08 cm] apart.
- Wrap the mitten garland around the tree.

Step 4

To make earmuff ornaments:
- Cut a 2" [5.08 cm] piece of chenille pipe cleaners
- ADULT: Hot glue a pom-pom to either end of the chenille pipe cleaner pieces
- Gently bend each chenille pipe cleaner into a half circle
- Lay the earmuff ornaments over branches on the tree

Step 5

Make a snowflake tree topper using iridescent chenille pipe cleaners. To do this:
- Cut 3 pieces 4" [10.16 cm] long and 5 pieces 2" [5.08 cm] long
- Lay two of the 4" [10.16 cm] pieces on your work surface in an “X”, then lay the third one vertically over the centre of the “X”
- Twist them together to make the base of the snowflake
- Fold each of the 2" [5.08 cm] pieces in half and twist one onto each of the ends of the snowflake, about ½" [1.27 cm] from the end.
- Twist the bottom, vertical piece onto the top of the tree.
