Here's an idea... has a tutorial for making these fabric Xmas trees. Go there and download the pattern. I can see these in Tongan ngatu barkcloth with MOP buttons, or old wool blankets and embroidered lined up along the fireplace. I am having to think outside the square because I don't have space for a Xmas tree anymore, so I make decorations I can place around our home or from an old dried branch in a vase. Melissa at made some as have many others. Use felted jerseys, handmade felt, eco-dyed fabrics, old embroidered cloths, vintage fabrics, upholstery remnants etc. If you are like me, these will stay out all year. I love the linen cloth 'littlebirds' has used and her collection of sea treasures.
