String-Light "Wall" Tree with Felt Star Ornaments

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2010


In a child's room or a hallway, a string-light tree is as festive as an evergreen.

To create one, use adhesive hooks (four along the bottom, one at the top) to hang lights in the shape of a Christmas tree. Felt star ornaments add to the twinkle effect -- ivory and white are particularly chic, but you can make them in any color.

  2. Iron 2 pieces of felt together with iron-on fusible interfacing.

  3. Trace star onto felt, and cut out.
