You know how sometimes you go into Christmas overload and just can’t get enough holiday spirit around you? I’ve been stitching constantly and my poor scissors were feeling left out of the holiday fun. I decided to make them a Felt Christmas Tree Scissors Pouch so that they could feel festive while I’m stitching the evening away (I’m not crazy!).
- green felt
- yellow/gold felt
- brown felt
- green floss (I used DMC 700)
- gold floss (I used DMC E3852)
- “garland” floss (I used DMC E130)
- beads (I used Mill Hill 00777)

Print out the pattern, cut out the pieces, and use them to cut out the corresponding pieces of felt. Take the smaller piece of Christmas tree and stitch a garland. I just free-handed it, but you can use a washable fabric pen/pencil to draw it on before you stitch if you prefer.
Decorate your tree with bead ornaments. I used the green floss so that it wasn’t as noticeable and just attached each bead with a single stitch.
When the smaller part of the tree is decorated, attach it to the bigger piece. Don’t forget to leave the bottom open!
Stitch the star together, making sure it is secured to the top of the tree. Attach the tree trunk to the bottom.
Finish off the Felt Christmas Tree Scissors Pouch by adding garland and bead ornaments to the bottom of the tree.
I love the sparkly detail!
I love how snug my scissors are in their new pouch. If your scissors are a different size than mine, you can size the file to fit them. There’s no reason your scissors shouldn’t feel the love this holiday season!
