With just a few supplies, you can create something wonderfully Christmassy to decorate your home with. Lucie shows you how you can create the perfect Christmas Tree Garland.
A good while back ( too long for me to admit to!) Lisa at White Tree Fabrics sent me this little bundle. I had promised to make something Christmassy.
I wanted to make a new Christmas garland for my kitchen dresser and had seen some small fabric Christmas Trees with cinnamon sticks used as trunks, on Pinterest.
To up scale the project a little, I cut the fabrics into strips of various widths and sewed them altogether, before cutting out my trees.
What do you think?
I love how each one is subtly different.
Mind you, for a seemingly simple project too many of these made the bin instead of the dresser! I soon learnt to check that I had ‘right sides together’, and to remember to sew the string in, and not to get the string caught in the side seam and that too many seams within the tree made turning them right side out very tricky and not to have the hessian as the fabric at the base as it just unravelled as you turned the tree the right way.
But very much worth it I think.
So the dresser is now dressed!
