- Time:1 hour
1Take your Kelly felt and make a 2-1/2 inch fold. Fold it over two more times. Now, cut as many circles, 2 inch in diameter, as your folded piece of felt will allow. You will need between 85 and 100, 2 inch circles for a medium sized Styrofoam cone.
2Follow the instructions the same as step 1, but make your circles 1 inch in diameter. Cut between 25 and 30, 1 inch circles.
3Take a 2 inch felt circle and fold it in half, then fold it in half again, giving you a felt triangle with a 90 degree angle. Put some hot glue in the fold and near the corner at the bottom of the triangle.
4Place folded 2 inch felt circle on 1 inch felt circle, standing up with the fold facing the center of the 1 inch circle and pinch the center at the bottom to give it shape.
5Follow Steps 3 and 4 two more times to finish each 1 inch circle.
6Make as many felt pieces as you have 1 inch circles, with three 2 inch circles on each.7Begin to hot glue the finished felt pieces onto the Styrofoam cone, placing them close enough together to cover all of the foam underneath. You can also paint the Styrofoam cone Hunter Green to ensure you wont see White under the felt.8Once your Styrofoam cone is covered with the finished felt pieces, make a bow and adhere it to the top of the Styrofoam cone.9Hot glue buttons such as Mini Cookie Cutters, Glitter Holly, Pearl Snowflakes, Red Poinsettias and A Keepsake Christmas as embellishments.
