Christmas Trees with The DIY Housewives

Christmas Trees with The DIY Housewives

If it’s the first Wednesday of the month, then that can only mean one thing- it’s time for a new collection of project ideas from The DIY Housewives! This means that a group of my blogging friends (The DIY Housewives) will be sharing an older project as part of a themed collection. Sometimes, the theme will be seasonal…or based on a project material…or possibly a room in your home. No matter what, each collection will be a wonderful way to find timely inspiration in one compact posting- plus, you’ll get to know new bloggers and some of their favorite older projects. And with Christmas drawing closer, our theme this month is…

Christmas Trees

Now, I haven’t snapped a photo of our own Christmas tree this year, but I have a gorgeous pic of the fishing-themed tree in my in-laws rental cabin, located in Blue Ridge, Georgia…and I just had to share it with you!

Ooh and ahh!

Isn’t she a stunner? I had so much fun decorating it and making some of the ornaments (like the little Buffalo check gift boxes) this past weekend.

But back to the task at hand- DIY Christmas Trees! I had several older projects to choose from, but I decided to go with this one: Vintage Serger Cone Tabletop Christmas Trees. I love this project because not only is it INSANELY easy once you have the thread cones, but it touches on the history of my town, Greenville, South Carolina. It was once a thriving industrial textile capital, with fiber mills around every corner. Most of the mills are empty now and the town has rebranded itself since, but these serger thread cones are a common treasure in our local antiques shops…relics of our town’s past, looking for a new lease on life. So, I collected a few green and red ones and created a mini forest of thread cone trees!Vintage Industrial Serger thread cones from cotton mills repurposed and upcycled as DIY tabletop Christmas trees with retro sequins by Sadie Seasongoods /

I especially love how diverse this collection is, and I hope you’re able to draw some festive inspiration from it! And I hope you’ll come back in a couple of days for a new repurposed Christmas ornament project from yours truly.

Craft on!
