"O' Christmas Trees" !!!

I am really loving Christmas trees this year.. I have so many ideas to make
them but, just not enough time.. These trees I got from the 99 cent store. I sprayed them silver,
added thick glitter, added a mercury ball on top.. Then I put foil paper on the bottom, fashioned with a silver bow and poof... Cute little Trees...
I made this tree out of chipboard, dictionary papers, glitter and a mercury ball on top.. I formed the chipboard into a cone shape then glued it.. Then cut dictionary pages and glued onto cone.. then i sprayed adhesive all over and dusted it with glitter.. A pretty
mercury ball on top..
This tree I bought at the dollar store. It already had the jewels on it. I just added a beaded rope, tinsel and mercury ball on top... The base is an old spool that I dusted with teal colored glitter.. added a tinsel rope ribbon for fun.. Next... Our 'real' Christmas
tree to decorate... Have a great weekend....

Caleen!! I'm loving your blog and all your creativity and thriftyness!! I am especially jealous of your craft room. I really need a space like that. I just posted a link to my Christmas decorating blog on my regular blog here: if you'd like to take a look.

I'm going to put your blog on my blog list so that I won't miss your updates. =)

Happy Holidays!
