Cute & Easy Felt Apple Tree

Friday, September 05, 2014

September is here and that means fall is right around the corner.  Since we are officially back to homeschooling,  I decided to create a very simple craft to go along with Summer's first week of Tot School Printables from 1+1+1=1


This cute Felt Apple Tree can be used in many different ways, not limited to this specific activity.  For Summer, I'm simply using it for transferring and as a way to introduce counting along with her weekly color focus.

Ready to make your own, here's how!

What you will need:

-white crayon
-1 sheet of blue felt ( I used a sky blue)
-1 sheet of brown felt
-1 sheet of green felt
-scissors
-red pom poms (of course yellow and green would be great to add)


Directions:

Using a white crayon, freehand a tree canopy on green felt.  This can be as simple or as artistic as you want. Do the same for the trunk using brown felt. Cut out each piece.  Next, cut a strip of green felt to match the width of the blue background.  With scissors, make random fringe to represent grass.  Again, as simple or decorative as you wish.

Add each piece to the blue background, along with your poms poms and that's it!
