Step 1: For best results, first cut circle templates out of cardstock to reuse over and over. Cut 4-5 circles in descending sizes in order to make a tree shape. Note, I did this using basic household items like cups as a template.
Step 2: Use the paper stencils to cut about 8-10 large circles out of the colored felt that will be at the bottom of the tree.
Step 3: Cut another 6-8 slightly smaller circles out of the next color and repeat with each color in slightly small circles.
Step 4: Assemble with a small amount of hot glue between each layer.
Step 5: The layers will appear very choppy at first. Use the scissors (very sharp ones will work best) to make very small cuts and even the layers so that it appears like a more seamless tree shape. Remember, you can always cut more away, but you can’t put it back!
Step 6: Lastly, glue the pom pom to the very top as a “star!”
