When I think winter, I think evergreen trees. Here are some easy to make stylized evergreen trees made out of fabric. They can easily be made by children and given as a charming Christmas gift.
Here are some of the trees done by one of my students from my winter sewing/crafting workshop 2010.
Make the tree stump(s)
Find a tree branch of the desired diameter. Cut tree stumps using a miter saw if you have one.
Keep in mind, if the stumps are too small in diameter, the trees will fall over.
Make the tree top
1. Cut Fabric
Use a plate to mark a circle on your fabric and cut out. Next, cut the circle in half. Each half can make a tree.
Fold the semicircle in half with the good side of the fabric facing in. Use a sewing machine or hand -sew a straight line up the side as shown in the photo. Make your cone wider or narrower by adjusting your sewing line.
3. Turn and Stuff
Cut off the extra fabric. Then, turn the cone right side out and add stuffing.
Using large stitches sew all the way around the bottom of the cone.
Pull the thread from both ends until the fabric is gathered together and the hole is gone.
6. Tie A knot
Knot the thread.
Add glue to the stump and glue in place.
8. Let Dry
Use a glass or another object to weigh down the tree top until the glue is dry.
10. Make More
Make a whole forest of trees!
