This year Christmas is all about trees and over the weekend I had Seven trees to decorate. I got five completed and only two more to go. One of the trees I made from burlap to match some of my other decorations. I first started with a large styrofoam tree.
Next I took the burlap and laid the tree on it sideways.
I then anchored the burlap to the top of the tree with floral pins.
I proceed to roll the tree with the burlap.
Once it was completely covered. I cut the burlap on an angle.
Next I secured the back with more floral pins along the seam.
At the top I sewed the opening shut since it was beyond the styrofoam but I wanted the tall point.
On the Bottom I folded and secure all pieces with floral pins as well. It doesn't need to look pretty since it is just the bottom and no one will see it.
To decorate it just a little I took gold braid thread,leftover from my cross stitch days and added it to the tree.
Every 2-3 inches I wrapped a piece around the tree and tied it on the back side.
You could use any type of ribbon and also could hang little ornaments from the ribbon as well. I chose the gold since it fits with my gold and silver theme. Once it was done, I placed it with my twine trees and other decorations and I think it looks lovely.
