TRANSLATED FROM GERMAN (the grammar may be off but u can get the jest of it) Christmas Eve we do not spend in Vienna, but I still wanted a tree. A Christmas tree that you do not pour or dispose of. He was not allowed to be in plastic and he was supposed to be big enough to spread the Christmas spirit. So I had to be inventive and I sewed a DIY wall Christmas tree made of fabric.
Do you have a real tree this year? Do you want to save yourself the work and the dirt? Then my Ikea Hack, the DIY wall fabric Christmas tree is just right for you! How to sew a DIY wall Christmas tree made of fabric:
Fir tree fabric from Ikea (the motif is about 2m tall - I took about 2.2m) Sewing machine (mine is a W6 *) pen scissors tape measure pins Bamboo poles 1,5m * strong cord Nail and hammer
Put about 2cm the Known of the side parts, pin them down and sew them tight with the sewing machine. Put about 1cm of the top and bottom edge, pin and sew them tight. Now put 5cm of the sewn fabric over so that a loop is created. Cut them off and sew them tight. Insert the bamboo poles through the loops at the top and bottom of the fabric. Attach the cord to the upper pole - if it slides you can fix it with some glue so that the fabric will not wrinkle. Beat the nail in the wall, hang it up and you're done.
You can now just hang the tree or you can attach Christmas tree ornaments to it with pins. Is your tree decoration homemade? If you still have no idea which jewelry you would like to use this year, I have this year a special Advent calendar for you! I will show you a small, fast and super easy manual for homemade Christmas tree decorations every day! I hope you are looking forward to it as much as I am! On 24.12. Will this tree be fully decorated
Materials • 4 mini ornaments (about 1 inch in diameter) • Plain hair elasti • Jewelry wire • Wire trimmers
Directions 1. Cut a piece of wire about 10 inches long.
String the ornaments one at a time onto the wire. To start, center the
first ornament and loop the wire around the ornament hanger so it won’t
slide around on the wire. Repeat with the remaining ornaments, spacing
them about an inch apart. Don’t worry, once they’re secured on the
elastic, you won’t see the wire anymore.
3. Wrap the wire around the hair elastic, twisting it tightly several times so it’s secure. That’s it!
How to do it?
Will be needed:
- transparent bauble
- transparent, medium-thick film
- CD / DVD marker
From the foil, cut the shape of a bauble with a diameter slightly smaller than a bauble. It is important that in addition to the wheel there is a "stezdzelek" there, thanks to which the foil circle will not rotate in the middle of the bauble.
On the film prepared in this way, we draw pictures at our own discretion. However, it's worth remembering two things:
- the lower edge will be immersed in salt so it will not be visible
- with a high probability you will not be able to cut circles with the ideal shape of a bauble, so it is worth not to draw anything on the edges of the foil
We fold the pictures in this way into a Roland and put them inside the bauble, in such a way that the previously mentioned "dzyndzelek" was in the place of the pendant.
Foil after inserting into the interior should develop itself, but if you do not want to do it, we can help her a little stick (eg for skewers).
The foil that we use should be medium thick - too thin will bend, too thick can not be rolled up and put inside the bauble or after rolling it will not want to develop.
We add a little salt to each bauble (not too much so that the bauble would not be too heavy). We put on the metal pendant again and decorate with a ribbon.
