Quick Christmas Make

If you’re wondering how to entertain the children in the week from when they break up to Christmas Day, how about making some of these lovely Christmas tree decorations as shown to us by one of our customers? Simply cut a series of circles of different sizes from your chosen fabric or fabrics. Sew a loose running stitch around the outside of each circle then pull up to gather into the centre  and stitch into place (this will make a smaller puffy flat circle). Thread a large-eyed needle with several strands of metallic thread. Start by knotting the thread through a large bell or button at the base. Thread on each gathered circle, starting with the largest and knotting the thread in between each layer so they stay separated. Finish with a small bell or button after the last circle, then tie off so there is a hanging loop for your finished tree. Simple but effective and fun!
