A Framed Christmas Tree

Artwork / Craft:

My home is yet to experience its Christmas makeover - but I am trying to get together some great things for the house this year. Thom is now 2 and I think this will be his most exciting Christmas yet so I want our home to feel festive.

I had a empty picture frame at home and thought it might be nice to dress it up for Christmas!

This was really simple to make and I used more of my scraps!!! - I am secretly very pleased how well I have been doing lately using up my scraps rather than purchasing new fabrics!

I sewed together a few scraps in strips and then cut out a triangle shape.

Next I laid the tree out onto the card and placed the frame around it to ensure it was centred properly.

Then I glued it onto the backing with a little spray glue. This just helps secure it for when you are sewing it onto the card. 

Next a simple straight line stitch around the tree and you are done! 

Pop it into the frame and display it with all your Christmas goodies!

PS - apologies for the poor quality photo above - couldn't figure out how to make the glass reflection go away :)
