It is time to start decorating for Christmas. Usually this waits until the day before or after Thanksgiving. But with Thanksgiving a week later than usual this year, I think my timing is spot on.
I also cut out Christmas trees to sew together. I used two different greens. The trees are 5" height. I used a dark green top thread and again a white bobbin thread. To get the spacing I first stitched through the tree then stopped the sewing and pulled the treads (careful to not put pressure on the stitches just sewn into the tree, lest the paper tear) to the back of the sewing machine about 6" or so. I did not set up a stand to make an accurate measure between trees. Instead I just eye-balled it. If the tree garland was for a very formally decorated room, I would have been more precise with the spacing.
