For my project I decided to make my version of these cute trees I pinned awhile back from Simple Home. Life.
Aren't they adorable?
I started with 3 wood blocks that were 2" X 2" and drilled a small hole in the tops the same size as the wooden dowels I had purchased. I painted them first with Martha Stewarts multi suface High Gloss acrylic craft paint in Gray Wolf and after the paint dried I put on a coat of Martha Stewart multi-surface Glitter acrylic craft paint in Antique Silver.
The wooden dowels I purchased were 3/16" X 12". I left one that size, cut another to 10 1/2" and the third to 9". Then glued them into the holes in the wood blocks.
I used patterned papers in Alpine Frost by SEI for my trees. For the large tree I cut 13 circles in 1/2" intervals from 1 1/2" up to 8", for the middle tree I cut 12 circles from 1 1/2" up to 7 1/2" and for the small tree I cut 11 circles from 1" to 6". I folded them according to the tutorial on the Simple Home. Life blog. snipped the tops so I could slide them onto the dowels and hot glued them in place.
For the finishing touch I hot glued glitter stars by Jolee's to the tops of the trees.
I will have some Christmas Blog candy you will have a chance to win if you are a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post!
