Making a Christmas Tree Skirt

I'm making a felt Christmas tree shirt. I want to write Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on the skirt, but just don't have many ideas of which way I could do this. Fabric paint most probably wouldn't work. Maybe making some sort of banner with the sayings on it and gluing it on the felt? Anyone have any other suggestions? Please help.

I have"Glistening snow write" by They have other writers. This one is like snow and sparkles. I'm sure any craft store has these writers also.I think it would complete your tree skirt.

I have seen the pre-cut letters in craft stores. They have adhesive backings and come in all sizes and colors. They may work. If the adhesive doesn't hold well, you could glue gun them on.

I just recently used letters that I drew myself on fabric with pencil and then cut out to applique on a wall hanging. It looks really neat because you can add shape to each letter differently and you aren't stuck with plain stencil looking words.
