I have added the final touch to the tree – a fabric chain garland. And now, after much crafting, humming and hawing over patterns and ideas, putting up and taking down ornaments, scavenging the apartment for things to use as ornaments, buying a real tree (my first!) I present…
-random amigurumi I had (see if you can spot them!)
-a few ornaments I did keep from previous years
-an assortment of miscellaneous objects (ornament mailed to us by a local hospital, a couple of cell phone charms, crochet Christmas star coasters)
-and to finish it all off a fabric chain garland
Just like when you made paper chains as a kid, you can make a unique and colourful tree garland with fabric. To make the garland you will need strips of fabric and a hot glue gun or you can sew if you prefer. This is great if you have lots of scrap fabric you’re trying to use up.
