How To Make A Glitter Fabric Christmas Tree

  • Create a tree template and cut out the desired tree shape from 6 sheets of NEW A4 sticky back glitter fabric. Glitter red, silver or gold would look equally as fabulously festive as green!
  • Place 3 trees glitter side down and lay strong thick wire down the trunk and foot of each tree
  • Lay the other side of the tree on top, glitter side out, creating 3 pairs of glittery trees with the wire sandwiched between the self adhesive glitter fabric
  • Glue all 3 trees together along the centre trunks creating a rocket shape
  • Glue buttons onto the tips of the stems
  • String beads, buttons and sequins onto thin wire to create a tinsel effect and wrap around the tree
  • Finish off with diamant√© button tree top and a wire hook should you want to hang the decoration up, or bigger glass beads on the feet of the tree if you want to use the tree as a table centre piece
