I was inspired by today to make a shaggy woolen Christmas tree. A what? I hear you say.
Have a look here at this beauty from Anthropology
it costs £98
.....and while I am sure it is worth every penny, I don't think Mr H would be best pleased!
So what to do.....mmm.....make one! Why not have a little go!
I thought about trying to felt the wool so the effect would be the same, but then decided that would be a bit tricky, since I have never felted anything in my life!
So here is what I did.....
Knit a cover for a candle
I used Chunky knit wool and 10 mm needles
I sewed that knitting up.
This was easy yet time consuming!
I used chunky knit, worsted weight wool and a little bit of baby alpaca, all from my stash.
My tree looked like a cone shapped shaggy mess!
Put it on display and swoon over what you have just made!
What do you think?
Do you think it needs a star on the top?
Please leave a comment below, I would love to know your opinion!
Or I would love you to share your Christmas tutorials with me,
I am all geared up for a homemade Christmas on Orchard Road!
