Learn more about a tree skirt and button ornaments to adorn the Legacy Patterns Wooly Tree – a miniature Christmas tree.
I recently posted a blog about making a miniature tree by Legacy Patterns called A Year of Wooly Trees Christmas – December. To read about its construction, please read Mini Christmas Tree fun – Making the Tree.
Also included in the pattern were instructions and templates for a tree skirt sized just right for the 18″ tree. The JOY was supposed to be a tree topper, but I chose to use the star. I appliquéd the word to the tree skirt instead. The bells and holly are adhered with fusible web. I haven’t sewn them on yet – and may not.
There is a button pack to complement the tree. The tree pattern provides a circle template for felt circles on which to glue the buttons for ornaments…
Three of the ornaments used buttons from the pack and the fourth a tree button from the Jesse James Dress It Up Embellishments Christmas Collection A Whimsical Christmas pack. Pearl cotton worked well to hang the ornaments on the tree.
My next blog will cover three more ornaments: a button tree, snowman, and candy care – so check back soon!
