Because I love wax print fabrics so much, I would never throw away fabric leftovers. Because for one wax print fabric is way too beautiful to be wasted, and two I often have nice projects where leftovers come in handy. Since it’s almost Christmas I thought it would be fun to decorate my mini Christmas tree with some round pieces of wax leftovers.
- a circle cutter which is very handy because cutting circles with scissors is a real challenge,
- a hole punching plier,
- fabric hardener,
- and ornament hooks.
Cut out circles from the fabric leftovers. If you want to decorate a bigger tree, you can go for bigger circles of course. Make sure to punch a small hole at the top of each circle with a punching plier, because later this is where you want to attach the ornament hook so it can hang in the tree. Soak the circles in the fabric hardener and make sure to get rid of excess hardener. Put them flat on a table and leave them to dry until they’re hard and all the white substance of the hardener is transparent. That process may take a few hours. Once dried, attach the ornament hook into the small hole of the wax “ball” and your tree is ready to be decorated!
