18 days till Christmas: Alternative Christmas tree

IMG_4103 (1)

If you don’t fancy all that pine needle mess when the tree is taken out after Christmas, or need multiple trees to Christmasify your house, how about a fabric alternative?

One option, as above, is simply to decorate a tree-like structure with bunting or patchwork quilted stars. If you’re not that fussed about it being 3D, you could simply make a Christmas tree quilt out of squares and triangles, and perhaps quilt tinsel, stars, candles, gifts or bells onto it. You could even attach little rings to it, so that you can still hang ornaments on your fabric tree.
