{Scrappy} Burlap Tree

Today I am going to share a little obsession I have going on now--mini trees. You see, I go through phases where I really like something, and I make several of them--like all the many wreaths at my house. :)

Let's get started..

For this project, you will need:

Tree form--I purchased mine from Michaels
Burlap--two different colors
Glue gun & glue sticks
scissors

Start by cutting several circles. It is kind of time consuming, but put on a movie or show from your DVR, and the time will go by before you know it. :)

Follow the above directions to make the little 'poofs'--I'm not really sure what they are called. :)

Now glue them on. It actually doesn't take a lot of time for this step. Simply put a line of glue on your tree, and stick on several at once. Under the very first row, you will want to cut out & glue on a strip of burlap to cover the bottom triangles. It makes for a more finished look.


When you have your first color section done, move on to the next, and repeat all the way to the top.

And that's all there is to it!
Pretty little burlap trees that are perfect for the holidays! Enjoy!

Stopping by from Nifty Thrifty Sunday...

These are adorable! I am obsessed with burlap lately, ever since I discovered I can get burlap bags for free from our local coffee roaster. I can't wait to try these trees!

I recently made a burlap ruffled tree skirt, and it is adorable (and free!)
