Easy Christmas Tree

Hi everyone!  This is Kelly.  Today I have an easy Christmas decoration.  One of my favorite color combinations for Christmas is cream and gold.  When I was looking at the TC December 25 cartridge, the fleur de lis snowflake caught my eye.  Being from New Orleans, I love anything with fleur de lis; it reminds me of home!



I cut out a variety of snowflakes in sizes of 2", 1.5", and 1".  I used CTMH Colonial White paper, which is not white, but more of an ecru, off white color, since I could not find the right cream/ecru color glitter paper.  Naturally I had to add snow glitter to the snowflakes.  Normally I hate using glitter because it's such a mess, but this project had to have it!

Next I covered a 5" Styrofoam cone/tree with the gold lacy ribbon I found at Michael's.  I wanted the white of the Styrofoam to show through, so this ribbon was perfect!




I then started randomly placing the snowflakes on the tree.  Instead of hot glue, I used pearl headed stick pins!  This made it easy to place and adjust the placement of the snowflakes.

Once I finished adding all of the snowflakes, I added a strand of pearls to the bottom and top, a gold ribbon bow to the top and I was done!

  2. Your tree is beautiful! I love that color combo for Christmas too! (For a bit, I had a monochromatic bedroom in all cream--- I still have ornaments and tree skirt for that room that I stopped using once I changed my bedroom. Thank you for reminding me to find a way to use that again!)

    Very clever to use the pins to attach!
