I really didn't have a plan for how I wanted to decorate these trees, so I just did whatever I felt like doing. The tiniest tree is covered in baker's twine "garland", little felt "lights" and is finished off with contrasting thread on the exposed edges...it was by far the most time consuming of the bunch. I went with vintage lucite bead "ornaments" on the middle tree and finished off the big one with 1cm felt balls I had on hand - I just cut them in half and made a cross stitch on each to hold them in place. In the end, these trees are great!
On Sunday, after trying to find their permanent home somewhere in the family room, I got really frustrated because they kept toppling over. I had myself convinced when I made them that the bases were wide enough that they wouldn't be too topsy, but they were. Stupid plush. I did the first thing that came to mind in the end, and glued unfinished wood cubes I picked up at the craft store to each of the bases. They stand up tall and proud now, disguising our router and modem on my great grandma's steamer trunk/television stand.
I hope to put together a tutorial for these in the next little while - with my luck, by next November. Luck you! They're really easy and are perfect for hand-sewing or machine sewing, but all of the embellishments should probably be done by hand. So keep your eyes out for that and don't give up on those last minute craft projects. You'll feel so much better when they're finished.
