I am feeling very nostalgic today, and wanted to go back in time to my first Christmas blogging and share with you my Quilled Scroll Christmas Tree.... At the time I was new to blogging and wasn't sure if I should leave the patterns up and almost took it down. I have had such enjoyment sharing with you over the years. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I do!

This is one of my favorite projects of all time! I love scrolls and find that they are so versatile and quick to pull together in a pinch.

To make this lovely little Scroll Christmas Tree....

For making this tree I used 1/8 inch (.3 cm) wide strips. For this design you will need the following number of strips:

1 Heart-T-Scroll
  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) heart scroll
  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) T-scroll
Heart T-Scroll Shape

2 Kissing scrolls (they look like a heart don't they? and shouldn't every Christmas tree have lots of love?)
  • 4 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) S-scrolls - place them touching as below to make the Kissing S-Scrolls
Kissing Scroll Shape

Remaining branches
Double Scroll with Tail Shape

  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) red diamond

  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) red S-scroll

To put this tree together, I recommend the following:
  • Place the Heart-T-Scroll down first
  • Line up your 2 kissing scrolls next
  • To keep a straight line, it may be best to work over a piece of wax paper with graph paper underneath. Then you can use the straight lines to make sure your tree is straight.
Along the left side and then the right side, starting at the top, add the following:
  • S-scroll, pointing down
  • Double scroll, pointing up
  • S-scroll, pointing down
  • Double scroll, pointing up
  • Double scroll, pointing down
  • S-scroll, pointing down

See the picture for placement. You can then adorn the tree as in this example with pearls.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Very cute. Someday when I have time to cut all of the files I own I will also have to try this.
