Ribbon Christmas Tree
When I received the main feature range of Christmas ribbons - Christmas Charm - from Crafty Ribbons I was instantly in love with the colours. Not the standard bright red, but a slightly darker shade and a few gorgeous greens. I wasn't sure what I was going to make but this idea formed and grew...
I glued strips of ribbons on to calico (re-purposed from a fabric storage unit) and cut out two tree shapes. I zig zag stitched them together leaving a hole at the bottom. I used some toy stuffing to give it a little body and placed it on a kitchen roll holder! Yes, that's right... the stem and base is a kitchen roll older - it was the right size so why not?! Perfect upcycling!
I finished the bottom edge with a couple of widths of lace, in scarlet and kiwi.
This tree is on display on the Crafty Ribbons exhibition stall. If you'd like to make one you can free style the shape and get the supplies on the list below, or grab a kit to make a smaller hanging version.
