Additional Information


Fur Tree


  • 1/2 yard of fur
  • scissors or rotary cutter & mat
  • Paper for pattern
  • 16" Styrofoam™ cone
  • Tacky glue
  • Stand for base
  • 20 gauge wire for star
  • Board & nails to make star
  • Paint & sandpaper for stand


  1. Paint the tree stand and, when completely dry, distress with sandpaper.
  2. Using the pattern paper, roll the cone in the paper until it is covered. Trim away excess paper until there is a paper pattern for the cone.
  3. Lay out the pattern pieces on the fur back, making sure the nap of the fur is in a vertical direction on the cone. Trace and cut out.
  4. Using tacky glue on the surface of the cone, lay the fur around the cone. Make sure to smooth the fur over where it meets at the joint.
  5. To make the star, draw a 4" circle on a piece of wood. Make 5 equally spaced dots on the board and hammer a nail into each dot.
  6. Wrap the 20 gauge wire around the nails, as if drawing a star on paper. Do this 4 or 5 times. Remove star from the board and wrap around the star inter cross sections to secure star. Make a straight twisted wire piece to fasten the star to the tree.
