Today I would like to Spotlight some art tutorials for making christmas trees as festive holiday ornaments ..

1) Funky Patchwork Style Christmas Tree Ornaments

I love the simplicity of these little christmas tree ornaments, great for using up some small leftover pieces of fabric
and who could possibly resist the inclusion of a few polkadots..and in lime green ..now if only that fabric was in my stash :-)

Here another version for the knitted Christmas tree..
if you use a knitting wool with a high content of natural fibres then the tree ornaments can also be felted
I like the way these almost look like they had a dusting of wintery snow
