Homemade Christmas Tree Decorations

These cute decorations are so simple to make. Buy some dissolvable fabric (available from most fabric shops) then collect scraps of materials. Cut a square of dissolvable fabric bigger than you want the decoration to beand arrange the scraps onto it. Next place another square of dissolvable fabric on top of the scraps and pin it all together. Then either hand sew or free machine stitch on the sewing machine to keep the scraps together and to create the shape you want. After that put your piece under the tap to dissolve the fabric then cut away the spare scrap material so that you're left with the shape you stitched. Finally sew on a ribbon to hang it from the tree. Beautiful and a great, cheap gift!

If you prefer to buy your decorations then these ones from are fab but a bit pricey at £14
