A Fabric Strip Christmas Tree

Melissa posted a really fun little project on Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge this week, and the country in me had to give it a go!  She showed us how to make a little Christmas tree using strips of torn material.  I'm so sad now that I gave away most of my quilting fabrics, but I did find a few still remaining, and here's my little tree:


My little tree is about 6 1/2" tall.  I used a cinnamon stick for my trunk, and potted my little tree in a miniature stoneware crock.  My PTI item is just the Tiny Tag.    I love the music fabric and the bits of lace and the wood buttons!  This was really fun to make!  Next time I think I'll make it a little less wide, but I'm pleased with my results for this first try.  Thank you, Melissa!

How darling is this! I always put up about 7 little to medium-sized trees around our house during the holidays because I love the lights. This would make a lovely gift for a friend I have in mind. TFS!
