  • Christmas tree patterns;
  • the cloth;
  • threads;
  • needles;
  • filler (fabric or synthetic winterizer).

Sew a Christmas tree

  1. Make a piece. Draw the shape of your Christmas tree on a piece of paper and cut it out.
  2. According to the patterns, carve out two identical cloths of the product, not forgetting about 0.5 cm allowances.
  3. Connect the parts and sew them around the edge. The lower part is sewn at the very end.
  4. Fill the Christmas tree with filler and sew the bottom.

  • green felt (can be different shades);
  • foam cone;Christmas tree
  • scissors;
  • pins;
  • curves for circles.

  1. Prepare the curve in the form of a circle. The diameter of the circle depends on the size of the tree: the larger and larger the tree, the larger must be the diameter.
  2. Cut out circles from felt fabric. If you have a fabric of different shades, then cut out from different fabrics. It is worth noting that about 100 circles are needed for a small tree 20–25 cm high.
  3. Fold all the circles so that you have a cone.
  4. After that, attach them to the base of the foam using small pins. We start working from the bottom and gradually “put on” the branches of the Christmas tree row by row.

  3. After that, make a paper cone and glue the needles to the base. Remember that there are large needles below and small ones above.

Bulk tree

This option is similar to the previous one, but here instead of needles they use circles. To create a Christmas tree, cut a huge number of circles of the same size. Then glue them with one side to the cone. In this case, you need a large number of circles, as they fit tightly one to another.


This Christmas tree is made of the same materials as the previous one, only here a metal rod is necessary for the base (if not, thenChristmas treeuse a ballpoint pen).

  1. Cut paper circles of different diameters.
  2. Divide the circle into 12 equal parts, starting from the middle.
  3. Cut the obtained parts along the lines to the middle of the workpiece.
  4. Fold the corners to each other and glue them.
  5. After that, the workpiece is strung on the rod. It is worth remembering that the circles with a large diameter are at the bottom, with a smaller one - at the top.
  6. The top can be decorated with a star or a small cone.

The number of blanks depends on the height of your tree. The minimum number is fifteen layers.
