This year is no exception!
Over the next few days I will be sharing a few items I have created for this year’s theme, giving you a sneak peek at my holiday décor!
Fabric Christmas Trees
These unique Christmas Trees can be created in no time as they are so easy to make.
Using these easy DIY instructions, Fabric Christmas Trees can be created using Styrofoam cones, a small bit of fabric, Styrofoam and berries.
Here we go!
I could only find two sizes of cones, and one of them was just too small. I wanted to have three trees of varying sizes. The problem was solved by carving a base for the smallest cone as well as one of the larger cones out of a sheet of Styrofoam and gluing them to the base of the cones.
A pointed top was created out of Styrofoam and glued to the top of each cone, using a wire to anchor it on. This gave each tree a pointed top, rather than the flat top the cone originally had.
Two coordinating varieties of fabric were cut into approximately 1¼ inch wide strips.
Once the glue on the cones had dried, I began by wrapping the first piece of fabric around the cone, starting at the top and leaving approximately 1 inch between the strips.
When more length of fabric was needed to complete the look, I simply pinned an additional piece into place. A little glue would work for this too, but the pins were faster.
Once the first piece of fabric had been placed, the second piece was added, overlapping the first strip of fabric. I liked the raveled look of the fabric. It gives the trees a distressed or rustic look.
To add a bit of additional interest to the trees, I fashioned a mini berry garland using a bead garland I found at Joann Fabrics on Christmas clearance.
To create the mini garland, I unwound the pieces of the original garland from the main stem. This left me with small pieces of the garland. The small pieces were simply twisted together to make a long piece of miniature garland.
The mini garland was twisted around the Fabric Christmas Trees. One was twisted in one direction and another one in the opposite direction, creating a “crisscrossed” look.
Once the garlands had been added to the trees, small round berries cut off of a berry stem were added to give an ornament touch to the trees.
And the Fabric Christmas Trees were complete!
These will work perfectly with my Christmas theme this year!
Stop back soon to see where they end up!
The possibilities are endless – I’m excited to see the trees you make to fit your own holiday décor!
