Make a Christmas tree out of felt with their hands, master class
Before starting work, obtain patterns for specific parts. Ready patterns print, cut out and transfer onto your fabric. Number of parts «twigs» count yourself. Look at the size of your chosen cone.
Twigs going very simple. After you cut the required number of parts using glue gun, place and fix a small button on the rounded edge of the «branches». Then staple between the sharp ends.
If you use the cone height to 30 cm as suggested in this MK, you need 16 rows of branches to fill the entire cone. The tree generated from the bottom up. For the first two next, you will need to cut out 20 pieces. For the third row will need 9 branches. For the fourth series you will need 8 items. For the fifth, sixth and seventh will need 24 items. For the eighth cut of some 7 items. For the ninth and tenth rows will require 12 parts. For the eleventh and twelfth cut the 12 items. For series thirteen, fourteen and fifteen have a total of 15 parts. For the last row cut out 4 pieces.
After you cut out and collected every twig start to build the soma of the crown. Determine the location and conditionally mark for yourself where you will start a new series. Following a number of branches must be placed with a small offset. That is, the branch of the next row should be glued between the two previous ones, in other words, staggered. But notice sometimes it’s pretty hard to make in connection with the design of the future tree.
Twigs glued with a glue gun starting from the bottom row. Attach to the cone thread is the place where you glued the sharp corners of the pattern. Gradually lifting. Don’t forget to glue the small buttons on the rounded side of the twigs.
Not dosleep few at the top stop. Directly the top of the cone, close the cloth. You can now finish gluing twigs.
The tree is decorated. Start creating jewelry. Take a white and red cloth, the pattern, cut out two pieces. Details superimposed on each other and sew small stitches in a contrasting thread. Ready jewelry place on the crown, stick them with hot melt.
For the top-stars take the yellow felt. Using patterns, cut out the necessary details. In the center of the star glue the button, and the edges of the sprocket baste the beads and which stitch stitch both parts, but don’t forget to leave a small hole for a cotton ball, which is pushed inside of the sprocket and close the seam. Then in cotton wool to insert the wire. Now that your star is it volume.
There are very few and your tree will be ready. Ready to put the star on the top of the tree. For this purpose the free end of the wire sticks directly on top of the cone through the tissue. If you are caught on the way the glue on fabric, this process will be hampered. Help yourself with a thin nail or a needle thicker. Wire in the cone too secure with drop of glue.
Now hang the garland. Small colored buttons sticking on all the crown. That creates the appearance of a garland. That’s all! Your Christmas tree is ready. The process is simple just to devote time to bonding of small parts that will be perfect practice for children’s fingers. Happy New year!
