In my quest to make as many trips to the dollar store as possible as many of my decorations as inexpensive as possible, I found this tutorial on making a glitter tree! It looked pretty simple and cute so I gave it a shot! I ended up making about eleventeen trips to the dollar store before I finished the two trees but whatever, they're cute ;-)
Start out with a cone shaped styro form, candle stick holder, glue, glitter,and paint brush ...
My tutorial is pretty simple ... paint on glue, sprinkle glitter, glue to candle stick ... CELEBRATE FINISHING A PROJECT.
I use the term "tutorial" loosely.
But I can't argue with results! The trees came out pretty cute! In the original tutorial, she painted the candlestick and it looks SO pretty! But I knew that if it was sitting around this place was waiting for paint it would probably be done just in time to be a housewarming gift to my first born.
Not that I procrastinate ... I just put things off until the last possible minute and beyond :)
So I made a cute pair of trees and I heart them :)
They look really nice on this table and add a bunch of much needed PIZZAZ! LOVE IT!
