So, if you’ve been to Walmart in the last couple of weeks, you’ve probably noticed that they have already put out their Christmas department! I definitely have and have been inspired by some of the decor, so I decided to try to make some things myself! One being, the fabric Christmas trees! I have a live Facebook tutorial on my page if you’re interested, but I also wanted to give the written instructions on our blog!
What you will need for this DIY:
- fabric of choice
- stuffing fiber
- wooden skewers
- wine bottle corks
- wooden rounds
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- optional embellisments
The first thing you need is a template. I found this one in a Google search! Feel free to use this one or a different one, or you could even draw your own!
After you have your fabric and your template printed and cut out, pin it to your fabric and cut two trees. Once you have cut your fabric tree out, you will use your hot glue to attach wrong sides together, along the two sides. Leave the bottom open.
After your two sides are glued and dried, you can start stuffing your tree. I used stuffing from a used pillow that I was no longer using, and it just happened to be green. Perfect for tree stuffing! 😉 Make sure you use something pointed to get your stuffing all the way into the tippy top of your tree.
Once your tree is fully stuffed, you can glue the bottom shut, leaving a small opening in the middle. You will be putting your skewer through the opening, so it doesn’t have to be very big.
The pointed end of your skewer can be put into the wine cork. If you have room left between your tree and the cork after you put your skewer into it, you will need to break the extra amount off. Once it is the correct length, you will put hot glue onto the top of your cork and press it into your fabric tree. This will adhere the cork to the fabric and help stabilize the tree.
Once your cork is set, you can glue it onto the wooden round, so your tree will stand up! You can then add embellishments if you wish. I added a mini wooden tag to my largest trees.
If you will notice, there are three different sizes of trees. I just printed the template in smaller sizes. Easy peasy!
And there you have it! I hope I’ve inspired you to come up with creative ways to make Christmas trees! I hope you will follow us on Facebook and Instagram!
