Oh, Christmas Tree!

I've been dying to do something creative and Christmasy but I haven't come up with any ideas until now. For some reason this popped into my mind in the middle of the night and I couldn't wait to get up and work on it. It is so dark and rainy here in Pittsburgh today so my photos aren't the best.

I recently saw these trees on The Graphics Fairy and wanted to use them for something. I printed the tree in two different sizes and sprayed them with adhesive and covered them in fine glitter from Martha Stewart. I love her glitter!! The adorable little girl is also from The Graphics Fairy. She is too cute!

I cut out a disc of cardboard and made a tab at the bottom of each tree and the girl and glued it to the disc.
I forgot to say that before I glittered the trees I glued toothpicks to the back to make them stronger. I used some seam binding pieces to hold the trees up.

I added some fake snow to the front and stuck small pieces in between the trees.

Then I found a tray and some beads and then added a glass dome. With the size of this dome I probably could have made a bigger tree. 

It was fun to work on! I hope you are having a fun, creative month!


  1. Wonderful, really lovely - have a Merry Christmas.

  2. Wow this is WONDERFUL! I need to go look at those trees LOL - and putting it all under a glass dome was a perfect idea! Well done...J

  3. Dear Susan your Christmas dekoration is so sweet and wonderfully made, love what you have made.

  4. Very creative Susan, and so this idea might keep me up tonight thinking about creating something similar - but I have no dome!
    Joyeux Noël.
