Modern & Crafty Christmas Tree

I wanted a non-traditional Christmas tree for our studio and yet wanted to decorate it with hand-crafted decorations. Is that strange?

We made these simple decorations from our red & creme printed fabrics, stuffed with a little corn fibre and trimmed with pinking shears. 25 cm of baker's twine was sewn into the seam for a loop. Very easy to do!

If you need an extra Christmas tree for an office space or elsewhere, this one was purchased from IKEA for under $10, stands at 1 metre high and of course, can be stored away flat-packed.

Or perhaps you could use it throughout the year for displaying other items or at a market stall? It wouldn't look like a Christmas tree.

You can find fabrics for decorations and other small projects in our scrap or fabric packs here.

A non traditional tree and hand crafted decos - not strange at all. I have a wire tree wrapped with white raffia, and lots of different hand made decorations. I plan to make some for this ywar's tree from my favourite fabric - red mushrooms.
