Tutorial - Felt Christmas Tree Bunting

Christmas Tree Bunting






Materials:

·         Felt in various shades of green  - (I made 14 for Merry Christmas) – amount will vary on the size of your tree and how many you want to make
·         Heavy weight fusible interfacing – same amount as felt
·         Ribbon – approximately 2.5 - 3mtrs long
·         Buttons or alphabet tags
·         Scissors
·         Pinking Shears
·         Christmas Tree template - at end of this tutorial



STEP 1

Cutting the trees

Following manufacturer’s instructions iron the interfacing onto the reverse side of the felt.
Using the template cut out the Christmas trees. I spaced mine out to fit 3 on a piece of felt. (see the picture below)
Using the pinking shears cut the bottom of all the branches except for the very top branch



STEP 2

Stringing the bunting
Work out the length of your ribbon and determine the spacing of your trees. Using the buttons, alphabet tags or beads stitch the trees onto the ribbon.




STEP 3

Finishing
Hang your bunting over a doorway or window or wall
