Vintage Fringe Tree

Most of you know that I love to repurpose things so I came up with another project using my green vintage crushed velvet bedspread.
The vintage spread was found at a garage sale for 2.00, but this time I’m using the fringe.
I decoupaged an artist canvas with book pages, aged it a little and then glued on the fringe in the shape of a christmas tree.
Then I just added vintage buttons, beads and a vintage brooch for the tree topper.

You could really do this project using any kind of fringe or even ruffled strips of fabric.
I think I’ll try strips of fabric next.

  2. Not seen anything quite so clever in a long time. Kudos to your creativity. That's just too good for you to not make money from. I'm betting next year we'll see a copycat in PB, BHG, Ballard Designs or somewhere.

  3. That is adorable!! It's making me wish I didn't pass up the giant spool of vintage fringe at the thrift store the other day, it was a nice muslin fabric color kind of fringe but it had a green line running thru it that I didn't care for so I passed on it. Now I wish I would have bought it! I could have made a tree!! ugh.. I wasn't thinking.. lol
