Holiday Craft Gifts

First up - for my niece and nephew. My sis-in-law told me that they have their own table top trees this year. It was her idea for tree skirts....one I thought was just perfect. Funny thing is, I had just made a treasury post of some lovely full size versions I found on Etsy.

These were what I came up with...the red one for her & blue for him.



Second...through 18th....
I was browsing around online & found these cute little fabric stacking trees on The Small Object. And the tree skirt fabric bits were just perfect for this project. I gave out a tree to each family at the Xmas Eve get togethers.

As much as I love them, I will have to make a small change if I make them again...sturdier fabric. The solid color fabrics I used were too flimsy to hold up well. I suppose I could just use a fabric stiffener along the bottom edge if I had to. And I am sure to make them again - they were too cute & simple not to!
