Sewing-Themed Mini Christmas Tree

A sewing tape measure made the perfect ribbon for decorating.

I have a ton of wooden spools. For the ones that did not have thread, I spooled some yard around them. I then glue gunned these to the tree.

I had some large buttons from Blumenthal Lansing that made cute decorations.

Bobbins added some sparkle.

And my tree topper was a pin cushion and pins sticking out like a starburst. It’s very midcentury, no?
