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.

The tree was made from branches from a dead dogwood tree we cut down.
I added moss rocks to the base and decorated it with some homemade and store bought ornaments. I love the way it turned out and you can’t beat free.
