Origami Tree Ornament
Several years ago I made a tree like this out of paper, and I decided to try it with fabric, using this tutorial. I went with scraps of the fabulous fabric I used for Melissa's tree skirt. The squares of fabric used to create the tree tiers are 2.25", 2.5", 2.75", and 3". The cork circle is 4" in diameter. I added snowflakes around the edge and decorated the edges of the tree tiers with sparkly puffy paint. The fabric is just ironed to create the folded shapes and hot glued in place. I debated stiffening it with something to prevent fraying, but I thought that would make it too difficult to work with.
