DIY Decor

Almost everyone has those special items that make their annual appearance around this time. The nutcrackers on the mantle, family ornaments on the tree, among countless other traditions. If you’re searching for a new idea to add to your holiday look, then look no further!

Fabric Christmas Trees

Simple to build, and with a classy look that will stay no matter the holiday decor trends that follow, this great idea also reuses any old fabric or clothing you may have lying around at home. A beautiful decoration with added eco-consciousness!

Materials: 

  • fabric tree template
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • 20″x30″x3/8″ cork-backed, foam core board or even a strong cardboard will do in a pinch
  • craft knife
  • 3/8″ ribbon
  • white craft glue
  • old sweaters or other holiday-themed clothing or any fabric you desire
  • marker
  • 1/2 yard of felt
  1. This craft begins with printing and cutting out the template at different sizes for a variety of fabric trees, before following that with tracing the outline onto the backing of your choice. 
  2. Using your gathered fabric to cut out similar, but slightly larger triangles, glue them to the backing and finish the back side with either a piece of felt cut to fit, or more of the fabric. 
  3. The final step is to mount it on a base, either with a slot cut into a rectangle of corkboard, or again, a very strong cardboard. Your christmas trees are now ready to liven up your mantle, tables, or anyplace that needs some holiday cheer!
