- Styrofoam: I used some old styrofoam that was in my attic and carved it into a Christmas tree shape. You can buy your own styrofoam tree or make your own like I did! It was very easy.
- Scissors: Use your favorite shears to cut the sewing pattern paper into 2×2-inch squares.
- Sewing Pattern Paper: Use any color or patterns you have! I love the delicate soft tan color vintage sewing patterns create.
- A Pen: Any kind of pen will work! You just need something sharp to stuff the paper with.
- Hot Glue: Hot glue allows this tree to retain its shape and keep the layers in place.
Note: Get extra creative and paint the sewing pattern pieces or stick some glitter or “snow” to the tree.
How to Make Your DIY Christmas Tree Craft
If you’re looking for a stress-free and minimal craft this year, you have found the place! Who said crafts have to be difficult?!
First, cut the sewing patterns into squares and make sure the styrofoam is in the shape of a tree.
Next, take a retracted pen and wrap a piece of the sewing pattern around the dip.
Put some hot glue on the end of the sewing pattern paper and puncture the styrofoam with it. You want to make sure you are stuffing the sewing patterns into the styrofoam.
Repeat the steps over and over again until you have a fully stuffed Christmas tree craft. The tighter and closer you stuff the sewing patterns, the fuller the tree will be!
This is what the tree should look like.
How to Use
This DIY Christmas tree is perfect for tablescapes, bedrooms, entryways, and so much more. You can even spray paint the sewing patterns gold or silver if you are wanting something different! I pull this tree out every year during the Christmas holidays.
Have some leftover vintage sewing patterns lying around somewhere? Put them to good use with this DIY Christmas tree!
