I first saw these in the Stars Antique Mall in Portland this weekend. I just loved them, I snapped some photos on my iPhone and came home and made myself a few. I had everything on hand just needed to stop at the Dollar Store to pick up some poster board. Here is what you will need to make these fabulous fabric trees:
Fabric scraps (vintage table cloths, burlap, lace curtains)
I started by rolling the poster board into a cone shape and taping so it would stay that shape. I also needed to trim the bottom so it
Next i put one drop of hot glue on the inside of the fabric to glue it together and to form a sort of loop at the bottom. Then I placed a line of hot glue at the top of the scrap and placed on the tree form.
Repeat and mix up the fabrics you use.
I found a pack of 5 of the glittered ornaments also at the dollar store and glued it to the top. Bear with me this was my first one I made. I think the second one (pictured below) turned out better.
The cone was taller and more narrow. I need to figure out how to 'finish' the top so it looks complete.
The next two photos are the photos I took and what inspired me to make these. I plan on making a few more and using them to decorate.
Have you put up your tree yet?
