25 Days of Christmas Crafts - Day Two - 3D Felt Tree

I have packed up more of the everyday decorations to make room for the Christmas Decorations.  I plan on putting them all up this year as it will be the last year in this house.  So, as I pack things up they will stay packed away until I move.  Going to begin looking for a new place in the New Year.

Today's craft is a felt tree that you can hang on the tree or as in the above example, on a curved hook.

You will need felt (I choose white but you can use any color you would like.), 
chenille stick, beads, a scissors and an awl
(or something to make a hole in the center of the felt.)

First, for each tree cut felt squares (each stack represents felt for one tree)...

Cut five squares each of the following squares:
1/2 inch square, 3/4 inch square, 1 inch square, 1 1/4 inch square, 
1 1/2 inch square, 1 3/4 inch square & 2inch square

Once they are cut, poke a hole in the center of each using
the awl or sharp scissors.
Please take care not to hurt yourself when making the holes.

With the holes made, string them unto the chenille stick beginning with the
smallest squares and continuing through the largest square.  Five of each size.

Make a small circle out of the chenille stick at the bottom of the 
to keep the felt squares from falling off.

At the top, string seven beads onto the chenille stick and curve into a circle,
making a loop to hang on the tree.  

Once the beads are on and the loop is formed, arrange the squares 
as shown in the photograph to look like a tree.

This is really an easy craft once the squares are cut.
As you can see, I made several.

Enjoy today's craft...
That's all for now...
Talk with you tomorrow...
