Table Top Trees

Categories: Party Decoration, Decor, Winter

These soft weighted Christmas Trees will make a great addition to your holiday decor. You can make them with your favorite fabric and embellish them as you wish or combined them with our Tree Toppers (Project is also on FairfieldWorld.com) in a variety of different colors and patterns. By changing the toppers these trees can be displayed all year round. You can play with the dimensions and make some as small or big as you would like. Why not make a giant floor tree for a child’s room or playroom. Because they are soft there are no worries if they accidentally get knocked over. Use your imagination to have some creative fun.

Instructions

Step One

Please note: 2 ½ yards of fabric will make all three trees but if you would like to make them individually you will need 1 yard for the large tree, ¾ yard for the medium tree and ½ yard for the small tree.

These instructions are for the medium size tree base but you can just increase or decrease the measurements by a couple of inches to make the large and small trees.

 

Step Two

Cut and assemble the tree template and base templates. Take your fabric and lay it on the table. Now fold it in half diagonally with right sides facing in. Place the tree template on top of the fabric lining it up with edge and fold. Pin and cut out from the fabric. Now take some of the remaining fabric and again, fold it in half, place the base template on top lining it up to the fold, pin, and cut.

Step Three

With the right sides facing in sew along the side edge of the tree using a 1/4 inch seam allowance and leaving a 3 inch opening in the center for stuffing.

Step Four

Now pin the base circle to the bottom of the tree again with the right sides touching, and sew using 1/4 inch seam allowance.

  

Step Five

To get a nice point on the top of the tree make sure you trim the seam allowance before you turn it right side out. Turn right side out. Pour about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of Polly-Pellets into the base, fill firmly with Poly-fil fiber fill and hand sew the opening closed. Embellish as you wish.

For the large base you will need to use 3 to 3 1/2 of Poly-Pellets and for the small tree about 1 1/2 cups.
