Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your green leaves!

Hello friends!

Hoping you all are having a fantabulous December so far. I have been busy working for the most part. Trying to make a living while living. Haha!

I recently made these super cute trees and thought I would share them with you. They really turned out to be super cute!

So I visited my local discount store which is called Dirt Cheap in Picayune, MS, where I am from.  It is a great place to find a bargain most of the time as you still need to be careful what you buy for not all things are a “real” bargain.

I found this really cute Christmas garland and thought they would make a cute tree. So as you can see in my photo, I needed a stereo-foam cone which I purchased at Hobby Lobby. You can find these in the floral section of your local craft store.

I also needed, scissors, glue gun, glue for my gun, wooden finial and some twine.

I began by gluing the garland to the top of the foam cone and worked my way down.

Once I finished gluing my tree, I decided to stain the wooden finial I purchased from Hobby Lobby.

 

Lastly, I attached the finial to the tree and wrapped twine for a more finished look.

Here is the finished product adorning my fireplace! I just love them. They were so easy to make.
