The sewing Christmas trees


I love tinsel trees like this. It reminds me of the tree my 98 year old grandmother used to put up every Christmas. She would drape shiny foil paper garlands and hang antique Dresden style ornaments on its glittering branches. Ahh, sweet Christmas nostalgia.

Here's a couple of 5 minute tiny Christmas trees I made from Puchi Collective's miniature tinsel tree tutorial. They are little homage Christmas trees to the gentle art of sewing and handmade creativity. I wish everyone a lovely handmade Christmas and a sparkly, creative and abundant new year!
