A shabby chic ruffled Christmas tree.

Hello wonderful Crafty Scrappy Happy friends!
I hope you had an AMAZING holiday.
I hope you ate wonderful food.
And gave thanks for all you have.
I am sorry that I was away----
but I am not sorry for the time I spent with my family and the memories I made.

BUT now, bring on the Christmas Decor!!!!

I LOVE the shabby chic look right now-
Sooo I was inspired to make this shabby chic ruffled Christmas tree.


Sweet and simple---let me show you  how to make your own!


Here is what you will need:
-Fabric
-hot glue gun
-iron
-scissors
-candle holder and "tree topper"
-beads and pins {for the ornaments}

1. cut fabric into strips
2. fold and iron fabric in half
3. cut folded strips 
{And don't worry NONE of these steps have to be perfect---
let me tell you what I always say---my crafts are NEVER perfect...
but I like them even more because they aren't!}


4. Next find a candle stand and a tree "topper" {I found mine at Michaels}
5. Start wrapping and gluing the fabric so that each layer overlaps to the STYROFOAMâ„¢ Brand Foam with hot glue.
6. add ornaments {I used beads from my DIY jewelry stash} 
use a pin to attach them but pushing them right into the tree.


ruffled and fun right?

I like the messy fabric look. 


especially amongst the mercury glass decor!


Andddd because as you know, I  am ALWAYS changing my decor around---I HAD to try another spot for my tree....



I hope you have an amazing start to your week and I look forward to showing you my holiday decor in the next few weeks!!!

Ohhh and before I forget again----

Thanks for the tutorial I always thought you had to cut and fold each of those square fabrics to make those kind of trees! Now I see it is much simplier. I love your style and the tree looks splendid!

I love that you placed yours atop a candlestick - that's a different and new way of doing this craft. Great thinking and pushing the envelope!

Oh, I love this! I have been having so much fun with the styrofoam trees so far this year. I really like your idea of attaching a candle holder to the bottom to give it height. Super cute.

Beautiful, I tried this last year in paper but the burlap is definitely much prettier.

It is beautiful! That candlestick really makes it, the combination of raggy and elegant are just perfectly shabby chic.
