I made the tree using vintage fringe from an old bedspread. I've used the fabric from the spread on other projects and decided I needed to come up with something that used the fringe.

It was a very easy project, I decoupaged book page to an artist canvas, then glued on the fringe in the shape of a tree and then added vintage buttons, beads and a brooch for the tree topper.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Vintage Fringe Tree
