october makebreak: 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" 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 colors of felt and cut out the shapes.
  • Cut a piece of yarn 70" long.
  • ADULT: Hot glue the mittens onto the yarn, spacing them about 2" apart.
  • Wrap the mitten garland around the tree.
Step 4

To make earmuff ornaments:

  • Cut a 2" piece of chenille pipe cleaners
  • ADULT: Hot glue a pom-pom to either end if 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" long and 5 pieces 2" long.
  • Lay two of the 4" pieces on your work surface in an “X”, then lay the third one vertically over the center of the “X”.
  • Twist them together to make the base of the snowflake.
  • Fold each of the 2" pieces in half and twist one onto each of the ends of the snowflake, about ½" from the end.
  • Twist the bottom, vertical piece onto the top of the tree.
