This idea is all over blog-land and I thought it would make the cutest addition to the playroom!
I knew the babies would love it but what I didn’t expect is that I had SOOOOOO much fun making it!
Often times, I just want to be 5 years old again and play with crayons and glue and construction paper…
Remember those felt boards in Sunday school? I loved learning about Moses and Joseph and David while watching the story unfold on the teacher’s felt board!
Anyhoo, in case you forgot…felt sticks to felt…how easy is that?!
At Hobby Lobby, you can find some felt ornaments, those are the larger ornaments you see on my tree. I added some contrast to the ornaments I bought and made some other ornaments for the tree. And since all my tiny girls LOVE Frosty the Snowman, I did my best to give them Frosty!
I used the heavier felt on bolts for the tree and the snow man, then just used the thinner felt pieces for all the fun stuff!
I didn’t have any felt glue and you know that other types of glue don’t work well on felt, so I ended up sewing the trim onto the ornaments, presents and Frosty’s scarf! (You could try to use a hot glue gun, that might work!)
It doesn’t take much felt. The tree measures about 30″ X 29″ and I just eyeballed the white felt for Frosty and guessed. It depends on how big you want the jolly happy soul to be! And you could certainly make it easier by simply cutting a triangle for the tree and avoid the fancy cuts!
***To adhere the tree and Frosty’s body to the wall I used masking tape…I tested it & it didn’t pull the paint off!***
This project was super-duper easy and took only a couple of hours!
