DIY Christmas Tree Shirt

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Christmas is approaching fast! 
If your like me you have already started planning out the perfect Christmas outfit for your little one! With so many parties and get togethers this time of year you will always have plenty of chances to wear it! 

Here is a darling DIY Christmas Shirt that everyone will love! And the best part is you can make it in less than 10 minutes!!

Here is what you will need:
Green ribbon (can be patterned)
Red or Pink Ribbon (can be patterened)
Fabric glue
Fishing Wire
T shirt

First start by cutting 15 3 inch strips.

Then take your fabric glue and glue the end of the wrong sides together.

Do this with all 15 strips.

Then you will start on the bottom layer of the tree. The bottom layer is made up of 5 strips. You may want to use a ruler to make sure that everything is even. Then glue the tops of the ribbon to the shirt with your fabric glue. 

Start the next row by placing half of the ribbon over the previous row so that they over lap. Each row start in a little more and use one less strip.

This will make the tree.

 Next start on the tree topper/bow. This is bow tutorial is also on our blog under "The Perfect Bow" if you need more detailed instructions. Take the center of the bow and fold over each side of the ribbon.

Pinch the middle and wrap it with fishing wire.

Take another piece of ribbon and tie a basic knot. Fold that knot over the center of your bow.

Pinch the back and wrap in fishing wire.

Glue the bow to the top of the tree and you are done!

We love how easy it is but yet it is so cute and different! 

Enjoy your Holiday Season!!

  4. How does this wash? Do the ribbons come off?

  5. Love! You should add one brown ribbon to the bottom for the tree stump.

  6. Your directions say to cut the strips into 3 inch pieces if I am reading them correctly, however the strips seem longer on your picture. Is it possible they are 5 inches? Thanks! Love the directions BTW.
