String-Light "Wall" Tree with Felt Star Ornaments

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. 


  • Star templates
  • Wool felt, 18 by 18 inches, by Ecrue                                                          
  • Ribbon
  • Mini white lights, 2 1/2-inch spacing, 50-light strand (used for tree's interior)                                      
  • Mini white lights, 2 1/2-inch spacing, 100-light strand (used for tree's perimeter)                                                         
  • Adhesive mini hooks, in Clear, by Command                                                          
  • Floral wire
