The vintage lace herringbone is very cute and easy to make. So, how did our grandmothers do it?
For an unusual Christmas tree made of lace, we need:
- wide lace;
- narrow decorative ribbon with voluminous flowers;
- rhinestones or snowflakes to decorate the background;
- Christmas tree garland, if the panel is backlit;
- a sheet of cardboard covered with fabric;
- glue and sharp scissors.
This lace tree hails from the last century, but is still charming and sophisticated. Initially, such a Christmas tree was used as a decoration for the window, that is, it was glued directly to the glass, but you can make such a tree as a wall panel.
Cut the wide lace into separate strips of different sizes for the branches of our lace tree.
Cut the ends of the lace diagonally. Sew along the edge of the lace and gather it up a little.
Lay out the finished lace in the form of a Christmas tree. If necessary, adjust the length of the individual elements.
Cut a rectangular piece of lace for the "trunk". Decorate the top of the lace with fabric flowers.
To assemble our wall panel, put a drop of glue on the lace fabric and fix it on the cardboard.
Glue rhinestones or snowflakes on the background.
If you are making a backlit panel, then before installing a lace Christmas tree on cardboard, you need to make holes for bulbs from a Christmas tree garland in it and then fasten the lace elements of the Christmas tree.
In this case, instead of a flat sheet of cardboard, it is better to take a lid from a cardboard box with low sides so that you can hide the wires from the Christmas tree garland into the back wall of the panel.
