Crafty Christmas # 4


Made it! Another finish in my crafty Christmas challenge and the pressure is on to keep sewing and making! Lots of ideas but of course time is not on my side!

This is cute wee hanging tree is a great fun way of using up your scraps!  I made another slightly wonky tree!!! and cut circles from leftover pieces of wool and then stitched on a wee star and blanket stitched them on to the tree with a button star for the top!

I used a cinnamon stick for the tree trunk and I'm going to hang it from my kitchen cupboard for a festive touch!


Many thanks for leaving a comment!


Best wishes

  7. Oh Christine,
    I just love your little tree! What a great idea for using up scraps. The stitched stars are so sweet and the blanket stitch adds such a nice detail. And I understand what you mean about ideas but too little time. I hope you're enjoying your holiday season. Thank you for sharing your inspiring projects.

    Hugs

  8. I like these a lot. Even real trees are a bit wonky sometimes so that was a good idea making a wonky one :)

  12. That is too cute, I love the cinnamon stick idea, making it nice smelling too, I made something close to this a few years back, but I used the sticks I save from buying caramel apples :)
