To make this original and ecological Christmas tree, you just need some fabrics (you can recycle some clothes you don’t use anymore), wadding for filling or some old newspapers, thin string and a wooden base (that can be replace with other things that serve as base). First, draw the pattern of the tree in a paper. After that, with the help of the pattern, cut two pieces of fabric with the form of the tree. Sew both by the sides except the base. Fill the tree with wadding of the papers and then sew the base. Stick the tree to the wooden base and finally, embellish it with the string and whatever you want. For example, you can make a heart or a star in fabric. Furthermore, you can make a lot of adornments with this technique and hang them in the Christmas tree or in the door…
