- Fabric (large enough for 8" circle)
- Ribbon/Twine for hanging
- Sewing materials
To assemble your tree, fold it over right to left and keep going until you reach the top. This took me a couple of goes to get the folds right so that it left a neat edge at the top, but all it needed was a couple of small adjustments along the way.
For the hanging at the top I used some ribbon (reused from those tags you find in jumpers!!). I tucked in under the back two folds and secured with a bit of bondaweb, but you could also stich into place.
To make sure everything stayed in place I gave it a good press and also added some more bits of bondaweb between the layers for extra security. I used quite thick fabric, so with thinner cotton it may stay in place just by ironing.
I haven't put our Christmas tree up yet (it is still November after all!!), so this is hanging up in my craft room for now... But I think I am going to have a search through my fabric scraps and make some others in different colours to join it! What have you been making to get into the festive spirit?!
