“Crafternoon Craving”-Felt Christmas Trees

Obviously, I love to cook.  This whole blog is based on that hobby of mine.  Hobby #2, I love to do crafts and DIY Projects.  Aside from cooking, I am filling extra time trying out crafts, especially all the cute ones I find from Pinterest.  I thought you might want to see some of the projects I have been up to.Since this blog is about food, I am going to use a food metaphor :) Just like we sometimes get an “Afternoon Craving” for certain foods; i.e candy, chocolate, something salty, fruit, etc., I get “Crafternoon Cravings”.  I know, its a stretch but roll with me here.  I am going to start random posts of my “Crafternoon Cravings” for when I get the craving to do something crafty!  “Crafternoon Cravings” won’t be that often because this blog is primarily for my projects in the kitchen, but these cravings do happen occasionally :)For this “Crafternoon Craving” I found this project on Pinterest and thought It would be a great Christmas craft project to make my home a little more festive for the holidays.  I whipped up all three of these while my kiddos were napping, so if your looking for a fast project to whip up, these trees are a great one!{Note my circles are not perfect, like I said, I whipped them up really fast :)}FELT CHRISTMAS TREESfrom: iVillageWhat you’ll need:Styrofoam conefelt (whatever color you choose)marking penround object for tracingscissorsdressmaker’s pinsHow to make it:Use your round object as a template to trace circles onto the felt (or if you are in a hurry like me, just eyeball the circles and go to town).  Cut out the circles and pin them to the Styrofoam cone, starting from the bottom.  Pin the circles in a row, overlapping slightly as you go One you’ve finished the bottom row, start again, overlapping the second row slightly on top of the first.  Continue row by row, until you’ve covered the entire cone.How easy is that?!Have fun!Linking up to these parties and here
