Wool Holiday Trees

I love making these trees…I made 11 of them this past weekend and have the blisters to show it!  Last year I made a bunch of them too!


This year I made more bright colors with lots of bright pinks and blues. 


Making these is a great way to de-stash my wool addiction supply which I might add has seemed to be incredibly way out of control!  You can go here and here to see how they are made.


I think I am down to 8 giant storage containers of wool felt. 


Hoping to get it down to 5, but it’s probably not going to happen not looking good!


You can find these in my etsy shop


I am linking to these great parties!

Wow! Cute!
I think I like these ones most, but your older ones were also nice. It must be pretty cool to have such a huge stash of felted wool :)
Have a nice week!

Liefs, Audrey

I love these. I too have a BIG stash of fulled jumpers waiting for me to do something with. Was going to do some wreaths but I think I prefer your tree's.
