How to Make Cottage-Style Burlap Christmas Trees
I have seen trees made from everything while looking on online. I had this old burlap coffee bag sitting around waiting to have something done to it, so I decided to make some Christmas trees with it.
They are nothing fancy and I didn't even use the sewing machine. I just used hot glue but you could sew these or use material glue. I knew I wouldn't be washing them.
Tools and materials:
- Old burlap coffee bag
- Hot glue gun
- Old jewelry
- Small cheese box
Here is my old coffee bag I had.
1. Cut & glue the burlap bag
My pattern is a little crude but it all came out good in the end. First, I cut out my shapes and hot glued the front and back together, leaving a hole to fill them with stuffing.
2. Stuff the Christmas tree
I used my spindle to put the stuffing in. You could use a dowel or stick also.
3. Glue the spindle
Then I glued my spindle trunk into the tree.
I tore some muslin and old fabric into strips, made a bow, hot glued them onto the top side of the tree, and attached an old piece of jewelry to that.
5. Glue the tree to the stand
I glued the trees into some old small cheese boxes I had and filled them with some greens.
