a plaid christmas tree

Over the weekend, I started to panic when I realized that we didn’t really have any Christmas ornaments! So you know, I just whipped some up real quick like so the tree wouldn’t be naked.

I decided on a plaid Christmas tree. It says Christmas, but we could also use them as winter decorations later.

If you want to try to make your own, just draw a shape onto the fabric. I used some cookie cutters as patterns. I sandwiched the fabric with some batting and a little ribbon or twine, and then sewed on the outline. Then I took some pinking shears and cut out the shape. Tie a little bow or knot, and you’re done.

And because I can’t stop, won’t stop, I fashioned a plaid star for the tree topper too.plaid christmas 5

We decorated the tree at night by Christmas tree light, while drinking hot chocolate.plaid christmas 6
