You will need:
Darning needle and basic sewing skills.
This DIY kit comes in a cardboard gift box and contains all you need to make two felt trees as festive decorations. It includes clear, step-by-step instructions and templates to make the pictured trees. (Larger tree 13cm/5" tall.)
To make the trees, you will cut out paper templates and trace them on to the felt. You will then cut out the felt, decorate the outer sides of each tree and then sew it all together.
This kit is suitable for anyone with basic skills in sewing, or a child ready to learn with help from a parent.
Making earth-friendly products is very important to me. This is a super environmentally conscious gift - if you take out the sequins/beads and glitter string, the whole kit could be thrown on your compost heap and would bio-degrade.
I am a felt-maker and sculptor with 16 years experience felting, and 11 years experience teaching a range of crafts. I make all the kits in my studio at home using high-quality materials, natural and locally sourced where possible and assembled in a smoke-free environment.
I usually ship within two working days of ordering.

Please note that colours may vary slightly from what is shown. I have done my best to represent the colours of the fleece accurately, but every monitor is different.
