Felt Christmas Trees

Today’s all about Christmas trees here at KOD! I’ve got a couple of projects to showcase that show there are more options out there than just the traditional evergreen boughs. Gail from Purple Hues and Me created this trio of red trees by cutting felt leaves and adhering them to cone forms. What a simple way to make a statement on a tabletop or mantel!

Christmas Tree Advent

This advent calendar created by Rach at Family Ever After totally knocks my socks off! I can only imagine the time that went into all the detail of cutting and stitching each adorable little felt pocket, but isn’t the end result amazing?!? I can definitely see this becoming a treasured Christmas family heirloom!

Felt Mistletoe

Make-Mistletoe-from-Felt-ItsOverflowing1

When West Elm sold out of felt mistletoe before November even ended, Aimee from It’s Overflowing gathered a few basic crafting supplies to recreate the holiday plant. Floral wire gave life to yarn and felt and made it super easy for Aimee to shape her mistletoe. These are adorable to hang on gifts or in hallways for extra smooches!

Felt Leaf Tree Skirt

Remember that pretty felt wreath pillow from yesterday? Well, Jody from Homey Home Design loved it so much she decided to whip up a matching tree skirt this year. Jody sewed a simple tree skirt and then added her felt leaves and pom poms with fabric glue. If just the thought of making your own tree skirt wears you out, Jody encourages that it was much simpler and took less time than expected. Maybe she’ll add stockings to the collection next year!

Felt Wreath Pillow

Here is a beautiful, yet super simple, DIY holiday pillow from Jody at Homey Home Design that features a felt wreath with pom pom berries on a drop cloth pillow cover. I love how Jody shows that you don’t have to be a master seamstress to make a pretty pillow. A little fabric glue does the job quite nicely with this wreath!

Poinsettia Tree Skirt

Gail from Purple Hues and Me was truly inspired by a lovely white poinsettia stocking made by Yvonne of StoneGable. When she later stumbled upon an expensive poinsettia tree skirt in Neiman Marcus’ Christmas collection, she knew Yvonne’s tutorial was the ticket to creating her own. I can only imagine it was crazy tedious to cut out all those petals, but the outcome sure is beautiful!

Glitter Photo Ornaments

I love this sweet idea from Jamie at C.R.A.F.T. to create a Christmas tree with a family theme. Of course, a family-themed tree necessitates family photos, and Jamie and her mom whipped up a passel of glittery photo ornaments for only nine cents a piece. How’s that for budget friendly?!?

Dot Christmas Tree Skirt

Jen from Beauty in Bloom replicated the look of a dot and ric-rac tree skirt to create a colorful Christmas tree last year. She used her old tree skirt as a template to sew the new skirt and then glued on her ric-rac and dots to complete the look. I love this fun, unique design and the fact that Jen saved $50 by making it herself. With all the expenses that come with the holidays, that’s much-needed money in the bank!
