I love the day after Thanksgiving! One of my favorite things about it (it ranks right up there with gnoshing on tasty leftovers all day) is decorating the Christmas tree! 🙂
Sadly, our tree was missing a little something. I filled it with ornaments and lights, but the top was still bare. :/ Time to get to work!
First I had Fella draw a star on a piece of paper (because for some reason I couldn’t draw a proper star if my life depended on it), cut it out, and traced it twice on the gold scrap. I snipped it out.
I sewed the two sides together. This fabric was thin and stretchy, so my star ended up looking a bit wonky. :/
I turned my star right side out and stuffed it.
So my star was almost ready! All I needed was a way to attach it to the top of my tree.
I sewed two sides of the shoulder pad together and turned it inside-out.
So now I have a star and a thingy to attach the star to my tree. I combined the two by hand-stitching a pretty rhinestone button through the pad and the star.
I know it looks a little cattywompus, but I find it charming. 🙂
Of course, since we have a curious kitty cat, a big tree could be dangerous (imagine Gypsy climbing all over it and knocking it to the ground!). There’s nothing wrong with a teeny tree! 🙂
I hope you guys are having a wonderful holiday season. Happy tree trimming! 🙂
