UPDATE: Enjoy this cute project for one of our Christmas trees in our former home. We’ve moved and are giving our new-to-us home a complete remodel. I’ve completely changed my style! Click HERE to take a look.
Today, I’m happy to be participating in the All Things Home Christmas Craft Showcase with 14 other bloggers. We had so much with the All Things Home Christmas Home Tours, that we wanted to keep the party going!
When I put together the Christmas tree in my basement, I decided that I needed a garland to along with all of the other rustic decor on my tree. I knew that I wanted to do something in burlap and then while shopping in Joann Fabrics on day, an idea popped into my head.
It’s a little hard to see in this photo with the tree lights on, but can you see the garland?
If you’d like to make one for yourself, rest assured it was super easy.
Fabric(s) of your choice
Star stencil – Click HERE to see the one that I used
Two-sided fusible web – I used Pellon EZ-Steam II
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Following the directions on the fusible web package, fuse together two layers of fabric. I used burlap on one side and red ticking on the other.
Using the stencil, trace the outline of three different sizes of the stars onto the fused together fabric. Cut the stars out.
Cut your desired length of twine. My tree is in a bit of a corner, so instead of wrapping my garland all the way around the tree, I chose to make several 6′ lengths.
Attach the stars to the twine with a spot of hot glue on the back of the star.
I alternated the sizes of the stars and the burlap side and the red ticking side as I attached them to the twine.
I love the garland and think it adds just the right finishing touch to the tree!
Go visit all the other ladies for more Christmas craft inspiration!
