Christmas Table Decor!
Peggy Oliver has done it up right! These beautiful recycled trees would be the delight of any holiday table! Please enjoy the beautiful creations of Peggy!
Hello! Peggy here to show you how to make these easy Christmas decor table decorations.
The supplies used today are:
Sharpie Pen metalic gold
I started by opening and cutting a cereal box in half. This gave me two pieces of thin chipboard to work with. I shaped each piece into a cone and trimmed off the bottoms to create a flat bottom.
Below shows the inside as well as completely tight at the top of the cone.
I cut strips of pattered cardstock, curled the ends and layered them to resemble branches. I glued each piece overlaping slightly so the cone was not visible.
Remember those shaped Scissors well pull them out and give the leaves some texture! I air brushed all leaff tips in metallic gold. It took less than a minute.
Next I punched snowflakes and eBrushed them with a metalic gold sharpie.
I thought a topper made of dictionary paper would fit my vintage feel. I created two rosettes with an accordian fold. I placed a snowflake in the center and glued the ends and center to create a fanned look. I eBrushed my rosettes in gold metalic sharpies.
That's it! Assemble and whalla!
I started my second cone by gluing dictionary paper directly to it and trimming the bottom when dry.
I placed a bunch of punched snowflakes sprayed with gold metallic sharpies all over my covered cone.Next I wrapped some burlap around the cone and glued in place.
here is my result.
