I would like to begin this post by saying that this project took a lot longer than I had anticipated. My vision was to have three "trees" each of different sizes. The "trees" would be covered with green felt rosettes.
The materials I used included: 3 foam cones of differing sizes, 3 different colors of felt, glittery stars, and lots of glue by way of a low temp glue gun.
I began with the smallest cone. I used a small glass to trace circles on the different colored pieces of felt. Then I cut them all out and turned them into rosettes. Here is a link to a rosette tutorial: http://mrspriss.com/2010/03/12/tutorial-felt-rosettes/.
Once the cone was covered I glued a star on top. Then I started in on the second and third cones. I spread this work out over a week. I'm pleased with the finished product and glad that it's over!
I have a hard time getting good light in our family room. The colors didn't come out as vibrant as they are in person. For kicks, I took one picture in "Expressive Mode." It's truer to the colors.
