Holiday Project #1 - Easy Tree Centerpiece

Wednesday night my pal Michelle and I had some fun crafting together!  I saw the tutorial for this centepiece on Just Sew Sassy and knew I had to make some! 

First we gathered our supplies:
Glue Guns
Ice Cream

Chick Flick (our choice: Sex and the City 2)

Wine (oh, and styrofoam trees, ribbon, feathers, fur, and yarn)

 And we got to work on...
...a tree wrapped in a piece of white fur...

...a tree wrapped in a white feather boa...

...a tree wrapped in yarn...

...and a tree covered in ribbon loops.


We love how these turned out!!  Plus, we both love a good tedious craft involving ribbons and hot glue.  It's a sickness.
Here's Michelle's Christmas-y grove of finished trees!

Here's my "Winter Wonderland" grove of finished trees!

Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the  weekend      wrap    up           party!

  4. Thanks for sharing this...you inspired me and I've made my own set. I need to find toppers for them yet. You can find mine at the following link. I think I burned my fingerprints off a couple of fingers through all the gluing, but it was worth it. :)
