We've already make a tree with burlap (which easily adheres to the felt board). Now we are excited to include the reversible felt tree in our toolkit!
A reversible tree makes it easy to change in an instant from one season or story theme to another.
This tree is easy to make and allows for a lot of flexibility in design. Your tree doesn't have to match ours exactly!
- black and brown felt
- glue gun or white glue
- white chalk
1. Outline a tree and y-shaped branches on black felt with white chalk.
2. Place the black felt on the brown felt and cut out the black and brown tree and branches together.
3. Glue the matching brown and black branches together.
4. Glue the brown and black tree shapes together with the branches inserted between the two pieces of tree.
This is what your finished tree might look like. The design will vary depending on the sizes and colors of your felt pieces and your own imagination.
In fact, please share your ideas or finished tree with a comment or photo below!
Use the the brown side for autumn or forest activities, then simply flip the tree over, revealing the black side, to include Halloween and night time play.
