I love to decorate for the holidays and, obviously, hand made home decor is my favorite.  With all the things that have to get done during the holidays, it can be hard to squeeze crafting in.  One thing I love about my sponsor Foamology’s products is that I can quickly and inexpensively create wall art.  I used Design Foam to create a faux quilted Christmas tree to deck the walls with.  Beautiful Robert Kaufman fabric gives the project a gorgeous elegant touch.


Supplies:

 

Step one:  Use this template to plan and cut your fabrics.  Each square is 3×3 inches.  Cut the amount needed plus an extra inch on each side. (For the pieces that will wrap around to the back, add 3 inches.)

Step two:  Add the fabric strips as shown in the template.  Simply tuck in the edges of the fabric, and the foam will hold it securely.

Step three:  For the edges of the piece, peel away the backing and press the fabric into the adhesive backed foam.  I completed the tree first, using fabric with gold in it.  Once the tree was complete, I began to fill in the background with black fabric, like a starry night.

Step four:  Glue the star to the top of the Christmas tree wall art.

Step five:  To keep with the elegance of the fabric, I added some pretty costume jewelry as ornaments.  Tie a length of cord onto a jewelry pin, then press the cord into the folds to hide the cord and hold the “ornament” in place.

When you’re ready to display you holiday tree wall art, simply peel off the backing and adhere the entire piece to the wall.  I love my faux quilted Christmas tree!

This project is part of a challenge I’m participating in as a member of Fairfield World’s Design Team.
