"O' Christmas Tree" Wooden Tree Set
Hello Crafty Friends! Jeanne here back this week to share with you these amazingly beautiful, easy to work with and fun wooden Christmas Trees that are this month's Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie.
This project is a DIY and makes as a centerpiece for your table, mantle, or anywhere in your home. I will be putting mine on a tray on my coffee table.
Here is how quickly I created these!
I began by assembling the trees one by one, set them aside then I took a recycled box and set it up so I can spray them without getting Mica Stain everywhere on my craft area. I then took the Ranger Distress Mica Stain Sprays, after shaking them per packaging instruction, and began spraying the " Cocktail Party" on (2) of the wooden trees. As I am spraying, I added a little of the Diamond Dust and some Buddy Holly Prills from the Kit.
I finished by spraying the last tree using "Merry Mint" spray. Once they were all sprayed, I let them dry overnight.
Once dry I began adhering the Prima Marketing Dresden Gold Trim using Fabri Tac, along the tree edges. Next I adhered the Prima Marketing Memory Hardware Pearls on the tips of the tree, I used hot glue on these to adhere them faster.
I finished it off by adhering some of the Little Birdie Crafts Gold Poinsettias from the December Scrapbook Kit.
**Final notes** If you like, you are able to dry these faster after spraying them using a heat tool.
** The Gary Burlin Buddy Holly Prills didn't stay too adhered when I added them as I was spraying the inks. I thought later I should have used some spray adhesive for this step. I might do this later if I decide to. I will update this post and share on the Tres Jolie Facebook Page if I do.
Well my friends, I do hope you have enjoyed what I have created this week. I definitely enjoyed making these and of course sharing with you how I made them. I do hope you feel inspired by my Christmas Tree Set. If you haven't gotten your hands on this kit, then head over there quick and Kim will get this out to you with enough time to create and you can display it just in time for Christmas!
I will be back next week with another project using the December Scrapbook Kit, so I hope you will stay tuned!
