Christmas ideas are sneaking in on the Crafty Side, it’s never too early to start.
Here are some cute, little, “tree”mendous decorations. You can use them to hang on the tree, or hang on handles or door knobs. You could even stitch them onto a long ribbon and make bunting or a garland. I made these a few years ago and have used them to decorate in different ways.
They are very simple to make out of some fabric, a bit of batting, some trim and ribbon.
You cut three square – one 3 inch, one 2.5 inch and one 2 inch from the fabric. Vary the pattern on the fabric so each part of the tree has a different pattern, or cut them all from the same material. The choice is up to you, you are only limited by your own imagination.
Fold each square to form a triangle. Cut a triangle piece of quilt batting slightly smaller than each of the fabric triangles and pin it inside each triangle.
Sew each triangle shape closed. Glue coloured bead ribbon or coloured cord along each edge and a sequin star at the top.
Now it is time to glue it all together. Place the biggest triangle on the bottom add the second and overlap the base onto the point just a bit, and then the smallest triangle on the top. Make a loop out of ribbon and it is ready to hang.
I pinned them onto the back of a window topper curtain in the kitchen and they make a festive garland by the window.
Are you making any decorations for the holidays? It’s never too early to start.
