How to: Make a Fabric Scrap Holiday Tree

Pin It

Hi Dolls!

I hope you're all having a fan-tabulous Thursday!  :)  So I thought I'd show you a little something I made last week, which btdub, I was sure J Chen would hate but made anyway.  Cause I'm sweet like that!  ;-)

Now, I would agree that this isn't my "usual style".  It's a little more shabby chic/country than my typical contemporary creations.  BUT, I do what I want.  So there you go.

Oh, did I mention this is the easiest creation ever? :-)  

So I bought these floral tower thingies back in October for my craft shows (to hang my hairbands on).  Well, as the season progressed, I found better ways to display them and no longer had a need for these dudes but I couldn't just have them sitting around....J Chen gets a little fussy about that.... ;-)

Chenyways, less talk.  More tutorial Action.

So, ingredient list then?  
Weird Iron Floral Towers--I got mine at Hobbit Lobbit over by all the millions of artificial flowers.
Christmas Lights
Scrap Fabric, cut or ripped to approx. 7"x2" inch strips

Step One:  Wrap your lights around the tower.
Step Two:  Tie your scraps on the tower.

Step Three:  Plug that sucker in and ROCK IT GIRL!
We keep one the kitchen counter....
and one on the cool desk that we use
purely for decor :)

Oh, and guess what?  J Chen actually liked them!  Well, when they're lit anyway.  :)

 Big (wasn't that soooo easy?!?) Smile,

Brandi, I have watched your progress over this last year and am soooo impressed that I aspire to be just like you! I am really trying to become more computer literate and more social media educated. What can I say----these are not 'my things'---I am an artist and writer--not a techno wiz! Anyway, I applaud you, your talent and your marvelous marketing. thank you....candy western......... p.s. those food photos always made me drool

That is so cute! I would never have even thought of doing something like this-you are obviously very creative!

I am hosting a Christmas tree link up as part of my 12 Days of Christmas series at my Christmas blog. I would be honoured if you could stop by and link up this wonderful idea/post!

Best Christmas wishes,
