An "ombre-esque" denim Christmas tree.

  • How to make a christmas tree. Denim Christmas Tree - Step 1
    Step 1

    Here's how I made it.

    I went through the denim stash and pulled out 5 shades of denim. Tip: consider the back side for a color variation.

  • Step 2

    I made a pattern by wrapping a piece of paper around the Styrofoam cone I was using for the base. I then divided up the pattern into five sections.

  • Step 3

    I then cut out each piece from the denim with a half inch extra around all sides. This is to allow for the top edge to be folded over and the bottom to be under the next layer.

  • Step 4

    Then I simply pinned each piece of denim in place starting from the top working my way down. The top piece went on with no folding over, but starting with the second one I chose to fold the top edge over to the underside. Totally your call. (You could even fringe the edges for a more fluffy look)

  • Step 5

    Hot glue could be used as well.

  • Step 6

    I haven't decided how I am going to decorate this tree. I did test drive dangle earrings with french earring wires and they hooked nicely over the top folds.

  • Step 7

    I was also thinking of pinning beads and sequins on to. Hmmmm

  • Step 8

    Got any other wacky ideas crafty-peeps? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear about them!
