    1. When you have both tree pieces you can decorate how you want, by adding buttons or stitching a fabric heart.
    2. Place right sides on the outside and stitch with a decorative blanket stitch around the edges.
    3. Leaving a gap to stuff, place the ribbon or string to hang at the top of the tree and secure when you sew.
    4. Stuff the tree decoration and stitch to close the gap.
    5. Your decoration should now be ready to hang on the Christmas tree!
