Hi all! I am so excited to be here at The Project Girl today! Can’t you tell by my heavy use of exclamation points?!!

Ok. Calm down, Kate. Get to crafting already.

As soon as I saw the beautiful Lost & Found Christmas Cotton fabrics Jen designed for Riley Blake Designs I knew they would make perfect fabric loop Christmas trees. I made similar trees last year using plain burlap, but using Jen’s fabric really stepped this decor up a notch. There are an endless number of ways you can combine the fabrics for this projects so get creative and have fun!

To make a fabric loop Christmas tree, you will need a styrofoam cone, a hot glue gun, a couple of hot glue sticks, scissors, a sewing machine, thread, and some Lost & Found Christmas Cotton. For each tree you will want 1/2 yard each of two complementary fabrics. I chose the Christmas Trees pattern in Cream and the Christmas Stripe in Red for one tree and Christmas Trees pattern in Green and the Christmas Stripe in Red for the second tree.
