Today I’m teaming up with a group of friends for a dollar store edition of a Christmas craft. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to see what my friends are up to.
What I Used:
Like I said this is the dollar store edition. I knew I wanted another shot at those mini trees but I didn’t find anything at the dollar store that made me happy. Till I spotted this tree below.
There was nothing wrong with it but it was really not my style. Ha! This coming from someone who filled her tree up with sparkle and glitter.
The How To:
What do both of these projects have in common besides the same fabric?
They both have fringed ends.
That is what I decided my mini tree would also have. I cut the fabric strips about two inches in width and fringed one of the two lengths.
I made each successive fabric piece a little shorter going up.
The pompom on top was made with bakers’ twine and secured with a wire.
With a tiny opening at the top.
And my little scrap fabric mini tree was done.
It looks a little like it would fit right in with Dr. Seuss’ Christmas trees.
And just think of the possibilities. Depending on what type of fabric you use, you can have so many different trees!
And we won’t talk about all the pins in the back since it looks a mess.
But maybe I should address that. I plan on putting the tree in a corner of the bookcase so no one will see the sloppy pins.
Had I wanted to do a better job, I would have created a pattern in the back and made the closures all level with each other.
But since no one will see it and you know nothing about it, (shhhhhh) then that is that!
And I don’t have to look at that tinsel tree any longer! Would you ever guess there is tinsel hiding underneath?
If you have an old tree and it does nothing for you, don’t throw it away. Instead dress it up with fabric scraps! I hope that I’ve inspired you to try your hand at this and you too can make a dollar store fabric Mini Christmas tree!
