This Felt Tree Ornament Craft idea was super fun to make with the kiddos.

It can also give an intro to sewing with a needle and thread for age appropriate kids too.  It’s fun to see them accomplish something on their own.  It really helps to boost their self-esteem but more importantly, it teaches them real-life skills they will use in the future.  Just think of how many times you needed to sew on a button that came off or maybe even hem up a pair of new pants you wished fit you better?

This craft project idea could lead to a love for sewing!  Next thing you know you will be at the craft store scooping out the sewing section for a brand new sewing machine.  I say this because this is exactly how my kids got started sewing!  Not many kids today know how to sew.  I don’t think they’ve been introduced to it to even know if they might enjoy it or not.

Christmas Tree Felt Craft Instructions
