Fabric Strip Christmas Tree ~ PTI MIM

Happy Friday everyone! I finally found time to get crafty and try Melissa Phillips super cute MIM project. You can find all the details on Nichole's blog.

After seeing Jill's tree in a spool, it inspired me to put mine in this old wooden shoe mold that I have.

The rusty bells are really tiny but I thought they would be really cute on this along with a couple of old buttons.

I die cut two primitive style stars in and distressed the edges a bit and added some gold glitter around the edges and put them back to back on the top of the tree.

So there you have it! My primitive little shoe tree! Thanks Melissa for the sweet inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

  9. Great job on your fabric tree, Birgit. Your wooden shoe makes the perfect tree stand. I didn't even attempt that challenge...no interest in buying fabric scraps. Sure saw some cute ones on the site, and Melissa's was typical of her style.
