Sweet Christmas Table Topper Make The Lights With Fabric Scraps

Triangles Christmas Table Topper With Christmas Lights To Add

Make this unusual Christmas table topper and have fun adding the Christmas lights. The table topper is made up of eight triangles. Each triangle has four sections where you can add four strips of fabric for the design. Mix and match fun Christmas fabric and end up with your own special creation. From solids to snowmen prints. Any fabric would look amazing on this easy table topper Connie Kauffman design. The skill level is set at ‘Beginner’. Anyone can make this super easy table topper. Use any fabric for any time of the year. Simply leave off the Christmas lights.

Use monotoned fabrics as shown in the pattern, and add a myriad of colors for the Christmas light bulbs. Or go for bright busy holiday prints and add solid bulbs. Have fun playing around with your fabric scraps to get the perfect feel.


Cut out the triangles and light bulbs using the pattern templates. Have fun arranging the colors and placing the light bulbs.


Once all eight triangles are sewn up it’s time to put on the lights! Using patterns given, trace the required number of light bulb designs onto the paper side of the fusible web, leaving space between the designs.


Fuse the shapes to the fabric. Now the light decorating fun begins. Arrange the light bulb shapes on the wedge pieces. When you’re happy with the arrangement, simply fuse the shapes in place. Zig zag stitch the embroidery floss in place for the curvy wiring. Cute!
