The holidays are just around the corner! Not only is this a time of celebration, it’s also a great time to create some great seasonal décor.

Here are six holiday sewing projects to deck the halls!
Holiday Sewing with Fabric and Felt
Hexagon Tree Skirt
Tree skirts are a lovely addition to your Christmas tree and add a bit of flair to your decorations. This is a great sewing project for beginners because it uses easy hexagon templates. For more information, visit So Sew Easy.
This snowflake pillow is so cute to toss on your bed or couch during the holiday season. Have the kids help you cut snowflake templates from paper. For more information, visit Diary of a Quilter.
Here’s a great way to recycle an old sweater that you don’t wear anymore. You can cut a stocking shape out of one sweater, or use two different sweaters to create a striped effect. How pretty is this country cream and blue color scheme for a wintery holiday? For more information, visit The Long Thread.
Bunting is a very fun and festive holiday decoration for the mantel, doorways or the tree. It's easy to sew (or no sew!) with some holiday novelty fabric scraps and ribbon. For more information, visit The Crafty Mummy.
Scalloped Tree Skirt
This is an adorable tree skirt that almost looks like an avalanche of snow, which is quite appropriate. All you need is some felt in two different colors to create the scalloped effect. For more information, visit Centsational Girl.
