Mini Tree OrnamentsFabric Fuse Modern Tree Christmas Ornaments

The holidays are by far my favorite time of year and having a little one this year makes them even more special! This year we aren’t doing a big tree because my little dude will pull it down so instead, we have mini trees all over the house! The ornaments and tree are housed in my craft room and are my favorite of them all!! I love putting a modern twist on something traditional.

Modern Tree Christmas Ornament Instructions:

Fuse the Fusible Fleece to your fat quarter for the backing of each ornament. Pick your first few scraps to work with, one for backing and 1 to 3 for trees. Make sure the background and the trees are contrasting enough to stand out. img_3099Take your tree fabric and cut out a triangle. The key is to just wing it. I started with my ruler on one of the bottom corners and cut across to the middle of the top. Then repeat for the other side. I like them a little wonky. Now place your trees onto your background fabric and trim the background to be at least a 1/4” around the parameter of your tree.img_3098

Fuse the tree to the background fabric by using the fabric fuse liquid adhesive. Let dry. Place your fused front tree and background onto the fat quarter/fusible fleece. Trim out the backing to the same size as the front. Pin together. Take your pinking shears and cut around the entire parameter to prevent fraying and to add a decorative look.
