With the holidays approaching quickly, I’m working on fun decorative holiday projects that are quick to make but still look luxe. I think plush cuddle fabric is a great way to achieve a “wow” finish with little effort. The fabric is so beautiful to look at and so soft to the touch! I used two beautiful pieces of fabric to quickly make this happy holiday tree decor.
This post first appeared at Fairfield World, where I am on the design team.
Step one: Cut pieces of the cuddle fabric to fit the cone. Pin the fabric onto the styrofoam. The pinheads are hidden nicely by the plush fabric.
Step two: Cut a strip of contrasting color cuddle fabric to fit the base of the cone. Sew the side together to make a tube, and fill with Poly-Fil. Pin the piece to the cone.
Step three: Gently insert the dowel rod into the cone, and hot glue it into the pail.
Step four: Glue the knob onto the top of the tree.
I can’t wait to make more of these! With all the different cuddle fabric to choose from it will be easy to make a set that complements each other but doesn’t all look exactly the same. My 5 year old liked this project so much that she took my scraps of cuddle fabric and a mini styrofoam cone to make a tiny Christmas tree for her doll house! What are you waiting for? Have fun crafting and creating!
