Whipstitch the open bottom edges of the tree.
Using a single strand of green embroidery thread, sew red and white beads all over tree as decorations.

If you would like to hang the gazebo as an ornament, glue a loop of cord into the bead for a hanger.
Tip: Can be made in favorite yarn colors, or white with a green tree, as shown here.
Use short lengths of yarn in order to keep yarn from fuzzing after it's been pulled through the canvas a number of times.
