in the mood
in the spirit of full disclosure….I’ve been window shopping online. for Christmas trees.
I’m in the mood. There is a calendar in my head that charts the path to Christmas decorations beginning with the day immediately following Hallowe’en. The trees will be decorated by Thanksgiving and I’ll have a full month afterwards to enjoy the sparkling wonder.
So, I’m prototyping a few new ideas for pretty paper tree ornaments. You know, just in case I decide to get another tree 🙂
these are paper circles cut from light cardboard packaging (cereal box). I brushed on some metallic paint, added a bead and looped heavy embroidery thread around the rings.
I’m also experimenting with a hex shape, but I’m partial to the floating effect of the rings.
I’m considering a silver tinsel tree. Too over the top? I think I might like it, but I’m just not sure…..
Many many more ideas for decorations coming up soon – there’s just not enough hours in the day!
Thank you for dropping by!
