Supplies Needed to Make Cloth Christmas Trees

This is a great Christmas craft to use up scraps. Don’t overthink the supplies!

I used a mix of fun pop of color for the fabric and some were more subdued trees that are gray with some fun ribbon for the stem.  I couldn’t find my stuffing so I used toilet paper.  

  • Fabric – use the fabric scraps you have on hand or pick up some fun holiday prints to coordinate in this holiday craft for kids

How to Make this Christmas Tree Craft

Step 1

Have your child trace a triangle shape onto fabric. Double up fabric when cutting so you end up with 2 triangles.

Step 2

Glue the edges of the bottom half of the triangle but leave the middle open so you can insert the “trunk” using ribbon. Note I use silicone glue that is in liquid form and it’s wonderful crafting glue but you can also use a hot glue gun (children should use with caution).

Step 3

Once it’s dry stuff it by folding toilet paper squares inside or you can use pillow stuffing if you wish.

Step 4

Glue the rest of the edges.

Our Experience with Making this Fabric Christmas Tree Craft

I made about 8 of these Christmas trees at first I used them as garland for a party and taped them to the back of some red/white twine.

Once I was done with that, I removed them off the twine and place them back on my Christmas tree as ornaments.

Using Craft Supplies You Have On Hand To Make These Fabric Christmas Tree Decorations

You can hang these anywhere, from a mantle, dowel rod, cabinets. These tree shapes look festive everywhere and how can they not? They’re little trees for Christmas!

But you don’t have to worry about spending a lot of money to make these small fabric Christmas trees.

Rather, use any pieces of fabric you have whether it’s cotton fabrics, linen, festive fabrics, faux fur, or whatever you bought at Joann fabric store.

You can use all sorts of mix and match scraps of fabric.

Plus, you don’t have to have festive string either. Use ribbon, a piece of twice, or even baker’s twine to hang them up.
