Fabric Wrapped Christmas Trees


This year, I am all about keepin’ it simple.  I started my Christmas decorating in my breakfast nook this year.  I spend a ton of time here, so I want it to really reflect my personality.  I love all things aqua and white, fabric, glitter, and chippy paint.  So, when decorating my nook, I started with my glitter in glass ornaments, added a sweet little countdown to Christmas, then hung JOY chargers with ribbon.  The only thing missing was a centerpiece…something simple, made with some scrap pieces of fabric.
I found these heavy cardboard cones at Michael’s and just knew I could use them somewhere.  I had no idea what I was going to do with them, then it hit me…cover them with fabric, and group them together…won’t that be pretty!
I wanted each tree to be a little different, so I gathered three different fabrics.  I cut long strips of white fabric and sewed a simple ruffle to wrap around the large cone.  I ripped strips of aqua to wrap diagonally around the middle cone, and I ripped thin strips of dropcloth fabric to wrap from top to bottom on the smallest cone.
For each tree, I started by hot glueing fabric at the top and working my way down.
Once I had them all wrapped, I grouped them together on an old silver platter and placed them in the center of my table…aren’t they sweet and simple?  The perfect addition to my little nook…

    Thanks for linking up to our party! I made some similar trees using scraps from my grain sacks. I was actually shocked at how well they turned out. :o) Happy Sunday Jessica!
