I seem to acquire a lot of crap in my craft room.
Most of it just sits and collects dust, but every now and then,
an "AHhhhhHA" moment strikes.
I blew the dust off, choked a little, and this was the result.
white paint and brush
dollar store light set (battery operated)
cardboard (cereal box style)
Create a cone from your cardboard. Hot glue it into shape and give it a quick coat of white paint. DON'T GET HOT GLUE ON FINGER AND THEN PUT YOUR FINGER IN YOUR MOUTH....JUST DON'T DO IT!!!
The tricky part was trying to insert the lights into the peak of the tree. With a lot of luck and pinched fingers from my small needle nose pliers, I was able to pull the lights through pre poked holes in the cone.
Then it was just a matter of gluing the styrofoam peanuts onto the cone.
Thank goodness the lights worked......
Always check the lights
to make sure they work before
you put them in your tree!
To top the tree off, I used a napkin ring.
I think the tree thought I was proposing....
The result was a tree, numerous hand injuries
and no hot beverages for a few days!
FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!
And for a little Coco Chanel
I base coated the form with pink paint, applied packing peanuts, sprayed tree with some spray adhesive and sprinkled glitter all over. Some dollar store jewels cascade down and dragonfly embellishments adorn the top....ahh COCO!
Mr. FT calls me Sparkle and keeps slipping dollar bills in my stocking???
