*Warning: This is a bit lengthy but worth it!
We all know I have downsized for a year so making more crafts to decorate my home is really not what I should be doing. Did I mention our storage unit is ready to bust at the seams. But, I just couldn't help myself. Darn Hobby Lobby!
I went and bought some Styrofoam cones and dug out what I had...
We have our Styrofoam cones, ribbon, flowers, assortment of picks, yarn, pearls, and snow flakes.
Let's get started on our first cone. I just pulled the tops of the poinsettias off the stems and hot glued them into the Styrofoam. (BE CAREFUL HOW MUCH HOT GLUE YOU STICK ON STYROFOAM IT DOES MELT...AND BURNS THE CRAP OUT OF YOUR FINGERS)
I added a pretty silver and white bow to the top and waa laa!!! Tree # 1....done!
Tree #2...I used some sparkly picks, cut the stems shorter and just shoved them little suckers in the Styrofoam.
And, here ya have it...Tree #2!
Now tree #3 was a bit of a mess. I sprayed adhesive on it, opened up a bag of snow confetti and sprinkled a way. Needless to say I have it everywhere. Then I pulled out some snow tinsel if that's what you call it. I used my hot glue gun and just glued a few little bunches all around the tree.
Added this cute little pick glitter ball to the top and a string of ribbon and pearls and this is what you have...
Tree # 4...I just took some fuzzy yarn and SPARINGLY glued it around the tree.
I glued some pearls and added some holly to the top.
Dig out your ribbon for Tree #5. I used a couple different colors and designs and glued the around the tree. I put the glue on themribbon and held it on the Styrofoam tree and all I have so say is, "Ouch"!
I just added a bow to the top and now we have a cute little ribbon tree to our collection.
Now I need a mini tree skirt. I have some quilted fabric, stitch witchery and my iron.
I made my template from a piece of my art paper and a round place mat. I made my pattern bigger then the mat but it worked perfectly.
I had some fuzzy yarn left and I just used my stitch witchery to attach it to the quilted fabric.
My little Styrofoam trees fit perfectly...Don't you think???
If I can do this so can you...Now go get some styrofoam trees and get "Crazy"!
Again, sorry for the long post but I did tell you it would be worth it!!!
This is where I'm linking up this week...PARTY
Have a CRAZY BEAUTIFUL week!
