It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! Hi everyone :) 
This is my most favourite season and I have so many new holiday DIY's in the works, so keep checking in cause you don't want to miss these DIY projects. These elegant trees are soooo simple to throw together and they remind me of similar trees I've seen at Homesense. I threw these together with scraps I had laying around. They are a great budget friendly project to get your home holiday ready. 

I've included three different sized trees in the pattern below! I hope you enjoy and make sure to share your projects on Instagram by tagging me @thelittleststudio!
If you have any tutorial or project requests please let me know in the comments below :) 

SUPPLIES:
  • Fabric Scraps
  • Thread
  • Pillow Stuffing or Polyfill
  • Polyfill Pellets or Rice

You will also need to be able to print the pattern on letter sized paper.

Cut out your tree piece and your tree base. I cut my tree piece on the Bias because I feel like it gives a smoother effect, but this step is totally optional. 

Fold your tree piece in half and stitch together. Leave a small opening so that you can turn your tree right side out. 
Picture
Take your tree base piece and pin it to your main tree piece. Pin together as shown! 
* Getting circles to fit together exactly as in this case, can be a little tricky. So pin first and you may have to make minor adjustments to make sure they fit perfectly.

After you have attached the base, trim out the excess fabric around the base and off the tip of your tree. Turn right side out!
Picture
Take your polyfill pellets or rice and put into a small sandwich bag
This is a rough guide for how much pellets or rice per tree size:
Large Tree      =1 Cup
Medium Tree  = 3/4 Cup
Small Tree      =1/2 Cup
Picture
Put your baggie of pellets/rice into the bottom of your tree and tap on a hard surface to even it out!
Picture
Fill the remainder of your tree with pillow stuffing. I recommend starting with very small amounts and filling the top of the tree first. 
Picture
Once you're happy with how full the tree is, take your needle and thread and do a ladder stitch or slip stitch to close your opening.

I may have to figure out how to use my seeing machine again. I have been making table top trees this year with both foam cores and handmade poster board cones. I think I can use poster board cones inside your stitched cone be leaving San opening at the bottom, rolling the poster board then releasing it and hot gluing the opening. Just hate gluing the cone shut
