This simple to make fabric Christmas tree centerpiece can be made to match any decor from rustic to very formal. It all depends on the fabrics chosen. A whole forest of them could be put together in an afternoon.
A buffet would be very elegant with these Christmas tree centerpieces sewn in white on white or how about silver lame? On the other hand, burlap or homespun trees on that sideboard in a country kitchen is just as eye catching with no ornamentation necessary.
for each tree you will need:
1/2 yard fabric
cut 4 trees on fold
unfold, with right sides facing: sew 2 together all around leaving space open on bottom for stuffing,
[repeat], creating 2 units
clip corners and curves
turn right side out
place one unit on top of second
sew a seam down the center-this connects the 2 units and creates 4 sections
stuff very, very tightly 4 sections through openings left at bottoms, stitch openings closed
Now, embellish to your heart’s desire with beads, lights & trims or leave as they are in the beautiful fabrics you chose.
Your tree is ready to display.
