Welcome Back! I am so glad to be back with the blogging world, and even more excited to be trying out the feel of our new home here on WordPress.
I am also beyond excited to start sharing with you all the fun projects we have been working on to get ready for my favorite time of the year! This week I am going to share all the pretty little things we have been making for the beautiful Christmas tree we have up this year, but today I want to start by sharing these sweet mini-trees that are so easy to make!
A few weeks ago, I took a quick trip to the local Goodwill store. I picked up 2 sweaters in the colors that I wanted and one children’s book (more on that later). I already had these two Styrofoam cones hanging out on my craft shelf, so I put them to work.
I cut off the sleeve of the sweater and slid it over the cone. Using straight pins, I pinned the sleeve right to the edge all the way around the bottom of the cone.
Then I trimmed the excess off the top (and a little from the sides as the cone narrowed) and use straight pins to pin all the edges to the cone. Because I used a thick sweater the straight pins are not even visible.
I absolutely loved the hombre effect of the sweater I used for the larger cone! These final look is so warm and soft, and fits perfectly with my theme this year!
I promise I didn’t waste the rest of the sweater! Stay tuned for the rest of the week to see how I used the remaining pieces of the sweaters.
