Oh, I don’t know how long ago, I showed you how to make quilted round ornaments. They are a fun and relaxing way to spend free time. Oh, especially when college football, pro football, or a baseball game are constantly at the ready to view this time of year.
Colleen and I took a break the day after the bridal shower. We both needed some quiet time. We pulled a table in by the television, pulled 2 Disney movies out to view (the football game hadn’t started yet and the baseball game was over), and made sure some snack were at hand. I grabbed my ever ready box of supplies and we got right to it.
This time around we decided to finally do our first tree. I have always wanted to make a few of them for my birds to sit with all winter long. As long as I don’t add ornaments to them, they really could stay out for a longer period of time.
Here is our jump off point…..
You can probably guess that I decided to do a traditional green tree first. If I like it, then I think a silver, gold, and red ones will follow. Can you hear Sam the Snowman singing “Silver and Gold, silver and gold…….”? Oh boy, Colleen and I started singing immediately when one of us mentioned a silver and gold tree would be great next time. But, I digress.
I decided to try placing the fabric in the same fashion I did on my ornaments. Familiarity would then lead into branching out and trying a new pattern.
I am so stoked by how our first tree turned out! This process start to finish took us 2 movies with no breaks, lol. Trimming the bottom with ribbon hid the seams of the fabric perfectly. There was just one more item I needed to add, but I needed Steven for this one.
A trunk! of course. Now the inaugural tree was complete! I think this was the smallest of the trio of tree styrofoam forms. So, now to gather silver scraps of material to build my second tree with….. Cyn
