Christmas Tree Garland

Well, it's supposed to be a Christmas tree garland, but, as my husband pointed out, there are no tree trunks, so it's more like a triangle garland.  You don't think the stars at the top elevate it to tree status?

I have been working on this all month.  I don't know why I started doing it, but I got it into my head to embellish some paisley felt with sequins.  
I only have small silver stars and they'll do just fine, but I'm going to hold out for some larger ones before I call this garland finished.  
As for the recipient, I'm not quite sure.  It started out with my sister-in-law in mind, because she's keen on blue, but I don't know that this is her style.  I'm considering giving it to a friend in California, because she likes the sparklies.  I guess, it's all flawed without those trunks, so maybe I should just keep it for myself.


  1. I hate to say this but I agree with Brian. Simply use your seem ripper to remove some stitches and add a little stuffed brown trunk to each one. They are cute as a button. I don't know how you'll be able to give them away.

  2. seam ripper. UGH
