Tiny Tree DIY
Here's a step-by-step guide on making your own little ornament. The only stitch you need to know is whipstitch (check out my Stitch Guide for more info).
- Green fabric
- Scraps of black, pink, yellow, and red fabric
- Bakers twine or yarn for ornament loop
- Mini pompoms
Step 1: Cut two tree shapes from green fabric, approx 3"x3.5" each.
Step 2: Cut 6" of twine or yarn for ornament loop. Connect ends with a knot.
Step 3: Place looped twine between the two tree shapes.
Step 4: Whipstitch all the way around the tree shape, leaving a 1" gap for stuffing.
Step 5: Stuff until full, but not bursting.
Step 6: Whipstitch gap shut.
Step 7: Cut small star from yellow fabric
Step 8: Cut eyes, mouth, and cheeks from fabric scraps.
Step 9: Use fabric glue to attach face, star, and pom poms. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
