These easy, Scalloped Felt Christmas Cones will add a little whimsy to your Christmas décor. When is the last time you crafted with felt? Sometimes, I think felt is overlooked for newer, flashier products, but there’s a lot of creativity in a sheet of felt. It’s perfect for these Christmas trees – it’s cozy, inexpensive, and available in lots of colors and prints. You all had such great ideas for the Paper Pinecone Tree Ornaments I shared a few weeks ago, and I can’t wait to hear what you would do with these Scalloped Felt Christmas Cones.
To make Scalloped Felt Christmas Cones, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 6” and 9” cones
- Cardstock (for pattern)
- Felt, ¼ yd. each of red, green and cream
- Jingle bells, two red
- Thick, white craft glue
- Tools needed: Scissors; tape measure; straight pins; disappearing fabric marker
To make Scalloped Felt Christmas Cones:
- Measure the circumference of your cone, 1-3/4” up from the bottom. Add ½” to this measurement and this will be the length of your first felt strip.
- Print and cut out the pattern. This pattern is half the length you’ll need. Trace around the pattern onto the cardstock, and then flip the pattern over, match up the straight edge, and draw the other half. Cut out pattern and if needed, piece the ends.
- Trace around the pattern onto the red or green felt. Cut out felt and pin the strip around the cone, with about ½” extending past the bottom of the cone. The scalloped flounce will rest on the tabletop.
- Repeat, using the cream felt for the second row. Continue adding layers of scalloped felt in alternating colors, overlapping each layer by about ½”. You’ll need shorter felt strips as you work your way up the cone.
- Once the cone is covered, glue down the top of each strip; keep pins in till glue dries.
- Glue a jingle bell to the top of the tree.
Where would you display these cozy, scalloped Christmas cones? Would you change them up at all?
Merry Christmas crafting.
