Have you been seeing those cute felt pom pom trees everywhere like I have? I was inspired by a couple I saw at Pottery Barn. The trees are so easy to make! Join me for How to make felt pom pom trees! My favorite kind of project, easy and can be a no sew project too! Perfect in any color to match an individual style or to give as a gift. Inside every successful project the best poly-fil by Fairfield World. (This project is sponsored by Fairfield World but all comments and opinions are my own.)
You will need:
Fairfield World Polyester Stuffing
Fairfield World Poly Pellets
1 yard each of Kunin Premium Felt; Lagoon, Candy Pink (or color of choice)
1 to 2 Dozen Pom poms per tree
Holiday Ribbon by Gwen Studios
12" dowel or stick piece per tree
Mason Jar or Board
Fabri-tac by Beacon
Scissors, Marker, Measuring tape, circle template, needle and thread, sewing machine (optional)
These trees can be made easily in any size. The finished Lagoon Blue tree is 10" tall excluding trunk. The tree pattern is simply a quarter circle. You can use a string and pin anchor to create a circle or use a template like a round table top, plate or charger. A 25" circle will make four 10" trees. The Candy Pink tree was created by using a Lagoon quarter as a pattern and adding 2" on all three sides making a 14" tree.
Match up the two striaght sides and sew. This can be machine, hand sewn or glued. If using an adhesive clamp and make sure it is dried thoroughly. Hand stitch a running stitch around bottom of tree. Turn tree leaving seam on inside. If adhered it does not need to be turned.
Make sure point is pushed out and stuff tree firmly keeping shape. Pull stitches tight leaving space for trunk.
Adhere pom poms. Insert trunk. ( I did not adhere trunk inside tree as it would make easier storage to remove tree top or change out tree color for year round decor. If adhering to a piece of board. Affix trunks to board first. A small nail through bottom or I tried a new to me adhesive Rapid Fuse. It worked quickly and a solid fuse.
For gift giving, fill a mason jar with poly pellets, add a festive bow and tag. Insert tree. Making these trees is so quick and easy, you can easily have a forest very quickly!
Hope you are inspired by How to Make Felt Pom Pom Trees! I love easy projects that can be used year round and also given as a handmade special gift.
