Since Station 8 has a Christmas open house the first weekend in November,
I always get a jump start to my Christmas crafting.
I love to add a touch of home made goodies to my space.
(plus I love any excuse to plug in my glue gun and break out some glitter)
One of the things I made were these fun Christmas trees
The first one I made was from some wooden biscuits I "stole" from my hubbies shop.
I started off by gluing the first layer around the styrofoam tree.
Then I just continued to glue around covering all the gaps.
After they were all glued on, you could see the '10' imprinted on each biscuit.
So I covered the whole thing with a coat of white paint and then a fun layer of glitter.
It didn't quite turn out like I imagined. It kind of looks like my girls made it,
but I keep telling myself it has rustic character.
The next one I made was my favorite.
I used vintage dictionary pages, a circle punch, a tree form and pins.
I just punched out a bazillion circles, folded them in quarters, and pinned away.
And the last one I made was the easiest.
I simply hot glued twine around the tree form.
It's a little 'plain jane'
But sometimes simple is better.
Have you started any Christmas projects yet?
I'm hoping to start a few hand made gifts this weekend.
But I'll probably wait a few more weeks.
Hope you get a chance to break our the glitter this weekend!
