project: oh christmas tree pin

O Christmas Tree Felt Pin

Oh Christmas Tree, or Oh Tannenbaum, is a classic, and perfect to Craft a Song of Christmas, so I made a little tree pin. But really, the entire time I was making it, I was humming a different song that is a bit more jaunty. You have to admit, this felt fir does look like the happiest Christmas tree, even if it isn't decorated much.

I kept my brooch simple with just a few snowy boughs (so it can be worn after the holidays!), but you could easily decorate yours with star stitches, french knot berries, or swags of garland.

Here's what you need:

Wool Blend Felt
Embroidery Floss
Small Safety Pin or Pinback
Craft Glue (like Aleenes)
Oh Christmas Tree Pattern PDF

O Christmas Tree Felt Pin

Cut out the three layers of branches from green felt and the back layer from brown felt. Also, cut a small rectangle of brown felt, which will be used to hold the pin on the back.

Embroider the face onto the middle section of branches, and add any stitched decorations you want.

Use craft glue to start layering the branches on, starting at the bottom and working your way up.

Make sure that your rectangle of felt fits through your pin, then apply a layer of craft glue on the rectangle.

Place the felt piece through the stationary side of the pin and glue on the back of the tree so that it doesn't show on the sides.

Once the glue has dried, your pin is ready to wear or gift! It really is a happy little tree!
