Christmas Trees Galore


So not only do we have two Christmas trees in our house this year, but I have several other trees scattered around the house. :) I love it! There's no denying what time of year it is at our house. Here are three that I made. I've seen several different kinds of these Christmas trees done over the years...you know the kind, where you start off with a Styrofoam cone. Until this year, I had never done one! Even though they were and have been all over the internet. I tried to be a little creative with mine...trying some new stuff. Here are the individual trees:

This one I made some pleats...one of my favorite things to do and put them around the tree. And then I added another favorite: lace. :)

For this tree I just punched circles of patterned paper and arranged on my tree. I wanted it to be a different height, so it was in between the size of the other two so I added a bit of styrofoam (sprayed with glimmer mist) on the bottom.

And then this one I took a bunch of Prima flowers and sprayed with glimmer mist in the colors I wanted. I then covered the tree with the little flowers. :) I love it.


Well if you have never tried one of these before, I encourage you to do so, they are fun and they make for really cute Christmas decorations. :)

Have an AWESOME Friday!
