Hi ladies & gents,
I don’t know about you, but I’ve already begun hunting for great items & ideas for the holidays. One of them was a little challenge. A friend & I were doing our usual hunting at Christmas Tree shops & came across some GORGEOUS glitter trees. I thought they’d be the perfect accent for anyone who didn’t want to create a grand tablescape but add a tremendous amount of classy chic goodness. Well, they didn’t come home with us. Why? They were $6.99 & $9.99 & we wanted at least 3 of them. The total would have been under $30, but to be honest, it looked like something that could be made. More truthfully, they looked like poster board cones with glitter & beads on them. But they looked much more glamorous than they sound. Here, take a look…
They look even better than that in person. Here’s a sample I found from Pier 1. They were $34.95! EACH!
Needless to say, my creative juices got flowing and I have decided to make my friend her own. But before I started gathering materials, I happened across this Martha Stewart video!
These are super cute, but it’s truly for those who have a little more time & patience, or a lot of hands involved. Be forewarned!
So it’s off to gather materials to make those glitter cone trees. I really hope you enjoyed this share. I’ll be back with more soon. I’m still in the planning stages of all our holiday ideas, so it may be a while before you see me do an actual project. I may even try my hand at doing a video!
Talk to you again soon!
