For Christmas last year, we couldn't bear to put up a regular Christmas tree with the baby walking - filled with anxiety by the potential for disaster. I was searching for how to give a toddler a Christmas tree in our small home because I thought it was important she have a tree to admire for Christmas #2 and stumbled on the idea of a felt Christmas tree. It was brilliant and I knew instantly that I needed to make one.
I dove in head-first to the project without a single idea about how to work with felt. Then, my anal-retentive, almost perfectionist Aries trait kicked in, reminding me of why I don't do crafts. I stared at the large felt piece before me blankly. I couldn't just cut without a plan ... I'd have a crooked tree with branches that weren't even close to mirror image. *sigh* Yep, this is why arts and crafts aren't typically on my to do list. I over think, over analyze, and totally take the fun out of it.
I finally figured out my game plan and constructed the most wonderful toddler felt tree I'd ever seen (not that I'd seen many). When finished, I was amazed at how much I loved this project, and even have plans for additions to this year's tree that I didn't have time to complete last year.
If you're limited on craft time but desire a felt Christmas Tree for your tot this year, contact me! I'd be happy to provide my services for a fee based on time and materials and save you the trouble of doing it yourself. Tree and ornaments will be hand-cut, so no two sets will be alike.
