tutorial: rosette christmas tree

Disclaimer: We have a small studio apartment and making a tree that stands on the ground is not exactly possible. And so I made a DIY tiny tree to match our tiny apartment.

To make this DIY rosette Christmas tree, you will need:

*matches (I apologize for the typo)

 

Tutorial:

Sounds easy from these steps but making this DIY rosette Christmas tree takes time. After a while, staring at a candle flame can make you go crazy. I suggest giving yourself a couple of weeks to make this. Adding a pretty star or an angel on top will also be great for that added holiday feel.

I know, I know, it doesn’t look much from the photos but this DIY Christmas tree is pretty in person. I’d invite all of you to my place if I could to check it out. This tree can make you smile, really.

see? tiny!

Notes:

1. Be careful touching the singed edge of your rosettes. Unless you’re Bobby Flay, the singed satin will hurt your pretty little fingers. (Segue: wouldn’t it be cool to watch a craft-related show with Bobby Flay, though?)

2. Use different colored rosettes!

3. A scented candle is ideal for this project. Inhaling fabric fumes is no fun, trust me.

  3. Girl, you are SOOOOOO creative!!! I love that! It’s absolutely beautiful! That would actually make beautiful centre pieces for a wedding! I may just have to consider that for mine…. it could be made in different shapes right? Instead of a cone? Like say… a ball? But then… if the satin is light colored, would it appear burnt? so many questions! hahaha!

  4. I LOVE this! I’ve made a few things with the singed petals on flowers and just love that look. I hope I have time to make it this holiday season! Thanks for sharing. It looks beautiful!

  5. How fantastic! I love how this looks – so beautiful.
    I thought it was a styrofoam cone with the satin circles pinned in place with gold balled sewing pins. I would say that might make the process go a little faster.. :)

  10. I LOVE this and am going to attempt it for a Christmas brunch I’m hosting. About how many of the rosettes did you wind up using to cover the tree? Thanks!

  11. Hi! What a gorgeous tree! I know this post is a couple years old, but it’s that time of the year again, and I’ve included your beautiful tree in my blog post about DIY Christmas tree ideas, with a link back to this post, so I just wanted to let you know.
