Hi everyone, here is a quick mini project for you, this is a great one for children too, let's see how to make a puff Christmas tree! There are 2 different types, one is threaded onto some dowling and stuck into a cotton reel(pictures at the bottom) and one is a hanging decoration.
You will need: 2 different fabrics, needle and thread, scissors, a small bell or gold button, and a cotton reel & dowling for the standing tree.
Step 1: Cut out 7 or 8 circles in descending sizes of each fabric.
Step 2: If you are making the tree on a cotton reel, cut a small hole in the middle of each circle for threading onto the dowling later. You do not need to do this for the hanging tree.
Step 3: Hand sew a running stitch around the edge of a circle, and pull tight to gather it together (see picture), fasten off securely. Repeat for each circle.
Step 4: Either thread the circles onto the dowling (at the base add the cotton reel) in size order or thread the circles together with string if making the hanging decoration. Add a bell or button/bow up the top to finish!
