Denim Christmas Trees
Holiday table decor made from Styrofoam and denim fabric.
Approximate Time: one afternoon
- Styrofoam cone shapes
- denim scraps
- tacky glue
- wooden clothes pins
- sewing pins
- Cut denim scraps into one or two inch squares. Fold squares into triangle shapes and secure with glue, then hold in place with wooden clothes pins. When the triangles are dried, remove clothes pins. You can now begin covering the Styrofoam cones for the trees.
- Beginning at the bottom of the cone, begin placing the denim pieces in the direction you want your design to run. There are two designs here to choose from.
The hardest part is waiting for the glue to dry. Hot glue will result in melting the Styrofoam, so you must use tacky glue and hold each piece in place until nearly dry or the pieces will slide off. For the one design, you will need sewing pins to secure the denim.
- Complete the pattern on each row before moving to the row above it.
- Embellish the trees as desired with purchased or crafted items.
