All you need for this tree is a tree form and ribbon! You can gussy it up if you want, but if you’ve only got some cardstock and ribbon, you can make this tree, y’all. It’s too stinkin’ cute, too! I wanted a red truck theme for mine. See the live tutorial >>HERE<< to watch me make it!

Toga Party Tree

chunky yarn tree

This was just a random, out of the blue tree that I made one day. I don’t have a tutorial for this one, but it’s pretty easy to explain. I used chunky yarn to wrap around the entire tree. Then, I wrapped the jute twine around as shown. Last, I stuck in small pieces of boxwood in random spots. I don’t even know where I was going with this tree, but it ended up reminding me of someone in a toga outfit, hence the name. Lol Totally random. Ever had those projects? Lol I still love it and I use it for my bathroom Christmas decor, because it kind of reminds me of a terry cotton robe, too! Haha! 

No Sew Stuffed Fabric Trees

Last, but certainly not least, as this is my most popular item on our Etsy store, are my no-sew stuffed fabric Christmas trees! These are so much fun, y’all! And if you sew, feel free to sew these, but if you don’t or you prefer not to sew, these are hot glued, y’all. What?! Yes, ma’am, I said hot glue. Watch our quick tutorial >>HERE<< on how we make them! You’ll want to make lots and lots!
