I have an antique farm table in my living room and I like to do a holiday display on it, I like to do snowmen and trees. You can make a great fabric tree that is so easy and looks so great. You can also make the pattern in a minute and make them in all different sizes. 3 different sizes look great together with 2 snowmen and some greens. Here is how to make the trees.
Step 2 – After you have sewn 3 trees turn to the right side and press your tree making sure you
press the opening so the edges are turned under.
Step 3 – Stack all 3 fabric triangles on top of each other so they all are lined up. Now you have a stack of the 3 triangles, you will need to sew a straight line down the center of the three so they are now stitched together. Now you have a tree with 6 sections.
Step 5 – This is the fun part. You get to decorate your tree as you want. I added a rusty star, some rusty wire and safety pins. My living room is prim so I made my tree to match. Making these trees in a shabby chic fabric looks really great. Do you have a child at college? How about making a tree to send them in their school colors. Do you have a garden room? One of these in a flower fabric and then just glue the bottom of the tree to the top rim of a vintage flower pot. You can do so much with them and they do make great gifts. I have found people truly love gifts made from the heart.
