Make sure your ‘Forget Me Not’ flowers fit together tightly.
They should somewhat overlap.

Use a scrap piece of brown grosgrain (approximately 1.5″x 1.5″) for the tree trunk.

You are DONE! Didn’t that come together SO quickly?!

I love the sparkly “ornaments”! It would be tempting to immediately have your cute lil’ girl wear this—
but let’s guarantee that glue is dry first! I waited 24-hours to be safe.

While you are waiting for the glue to dry, why not use another one of those DARLING sequin bows as a hair accessory!

Simply hot glue the bow to a hair clip.

This blingin’ Christmas tree shirt is IRRESISTIBLE!

Pair it with coordinating leggings and the matching hair bow shown above, and you’re ready for your family’s upcoming Holiday party!

Or have her wear it for that photo-op on Santa’s lap! Or the school Christmas party!

No matter the event, she is sure to receive many compliments on this expensive-looking festive shirt.

This same ‘tree’ would be adorable glued onto a fabric GIFT BAG! Or try using a single ‘Forget Me Not’ for a smaller version of the tree; this would make a cute, shining ornament!

Thank you for viewing this tutorial on how to make your own 5-minute Boutique Shirt.

Happy Holidays!

    Hi there! 😉 super cute project… cute enough actually – that I’ve been curating the items into my cart on the company website. Quick observation / question though. It calls for 3 emerald flowers, but I am looking at them at both locations and I think the project may need to be amended to call for 9, as they appear to be in clusters of 3. 😉 I’m ordering 18, to make 2…. jic.
    Thanks though for a darling pattern.

    I absolutely adore your tutorials. I am a 27 year old stay at home mother of four, three of which are girls ages 1, 4, and 5. I am still a little rusty with a sewing machine but your instructions are simple to follow and make me feel much better at it than I really am. I have made several hairbows, dresses, and ornaments with your help. Thanks to you, my girls think I am the craftiest and coolest mom ever. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

    Am I ever appreciative of the tutorial scroll that you run at the top of each blog page, Michelle, because otherwise I would have forever missed out on this amazing project!! I can’t stop staring at it, wondering how something that looks as if it has a trendy kids’ clothing label on it could be so inexpensive (and easy!!) to make. Thank you so much, Janica, for sharing your super-creative idea… and Merry Christmas to you and your family! xoxo

      Hi Pat! Yay! I am so glad you saw this adorable shirt. Janica did such a wonderful job of making this shirt look, like you said, as if it has a “trendy kids’ clothing label on it.” This shirt is so easy but looks amazing! Thank you for your comment and for being such a loyal and FUN reader! Michelle 🙂

    Hello, Where do you find the flowers? I am looking online, and I am not finding anything like yours. I would really like to make this, but need to find the flowers first, can you suggest where to get them online?

    Thank you.

      Hi Amy! Thank you for your question. All of the flowers used in this fun shirt can be found right here at The Ribbon Retreat. Janica used the Forget Me Not flowers which can be found HERE. We also carry a wide selection of other gorgeous flowers you can find HERE. Good luck and thank you again for your question. Michelle 🙂
