Week 8

Advent Calendar Tree 

 
This 6 foot paper pieced tree has been a hit with my kids since I made one for each of them, probably 10 years ago. The pattern is Tall Trim the Tree. I added 24 red buttons spread over the tree and put ornaments in little bags, with a little gift also and number the bags, 1-24.  I use ornaments that are not heavy or huge. Every year they give the tree and ornaments back to me to repeat the next December.  It's a great tradition that we all enjoy! My kids hang it over a door with 2 pants hangers. 

There is a 41" version - A little bit shorter tall tree pattern, if 6 feet seems too daunting. 
We have a few kits made up in various fabrics of the 41" size as well:
Beachy Tree Kit
Camper Tree Kit
Other ideas:
Halloween Fabric is super cute
Favorite Sport Team colors for the tree - and their team fabric as the border
A sewing fabric tree
A tree made out of batiks
A red/white/blue patriotic tree for a service member
the possibilities are endless!

Enjoy!
