Hey guys! Sorry for being away for so long! We traveled back to see my Dad for an early Christmas. It was a lot of fun – but I didn’t have near the time I wanted to be able to get online. Also – I know I owe a ton of you emails and and such. I just switched over to a new computer and I don’t have everything transitioned – including all my software for email and such. So I am running a little slow right now! Don’t worry! I will get around to everyone soon!!
I know I had a ton of you ask how I made the little ornament tree that was in front of my NOEL sign on my mantel.
Well it was really easy! So I wanted to show you guys how to do it too. First, I got a bunch of these mini ornaments from Target. I think they also have them at the dollar store too. I took off the little silver tops that you would normally put the ornament hangers through – they just twist right off.
Next I used a foam tree from the floral section of a craft store. All you have to do is then is put a thin ring of hot glue around the pointy end of your lil ornament and then stick it into the foam. The glue will hold it in pretty good. I started from the bottom and went around until I got to the top.
I was going to do it all silver but I ended up having too few lil ornaments to do a full silver tree – it will take between 4-5 packages of ornaments. So I added in the little touches of red. In retrospect – this looks WAY better!!
So what do you think? Did you pick up any of those little ornaments? If so – what did you make out of them?? I have another project that I used them in that I will also share with you guys later this week!
