Ruffled-Christmas-Tree-Craft-Crafts-UnleashedSupplies needed to make these ruffled Christmas tree crafts:

For the larger tree, I used pre-made ruffled trim found at my local fabric store. You can easily ruffle your own fabric using a sewing machine or by stitching it by hand then pulling on the thread to gather the fabric. I had both the trim and ribbon sitting in my craft supply stash so I took this opportunity to finally put it to use.

Starting with the big tree, I glued the trim spiraling upward. You don’t have to use glue the entire time just enough to hold the trim in place. For the small ribbon tree, I ruffled the ribbon using my sewing machine then cut six pieces to fit around the cone. I layered each one slightly on top of each other. This way I ended up with a “seam” in the back, unlike with the trim, it was just one large spiral with a starting and ending point. Does that make sense? If you have any questions please let me know!

Then, I glued the candle holders under the trees to give them some height. I decided to leave them unfinished because I like the natural look but you could easily paint them to fit your preference.

For the big tree I used a large wood star from my craft supply then a small star from this pack. I added silver glitter to give them a little shine. You can never go wrong with glitter especially during the holidays!

I’m so happy with the way they turned out. I want to make a whole table display of them now!
