I thought it would be fun to have a large felt tree in the children's section of the library with felt ornaments to trim the it with. The tree on the book shelf is about 2 1/2 feet tall. I made a slightly larger one to hang in my Storytime room as well. The kids will have fun decorating a tree over and over!
What you will need:
- Large piece of green felt
- lots of colorful felt for the ornaments (scrap pieces work great for this)
- Permanent markers
- Tape (to adhere felt tree to shelf)
- Pictures of ornaments to trace(optional)
Here's the tree all decorated and attached to the side of the shelf.
The tree is just waiting for little ones to decorate it.
I made a basket of ornaments for the kids to use. I will be making a few extra sets incase ornaments get ruined or disappear. :-)
