Sparkly Christmas Trees


I found this while checking out Pinterest, one of my favorite activities these days. So here is another Pinterest challenge for me.

I have a lot of neat old thread spools just sitting around gathering dust and in my quest to either use it or get rid of it I decided I would make some of these cute little trees. I checked through all my stuff and had everything needed to make my own version of these trees. I didn't include a tutorial since she already had a really good one.









I used a vintage star shaped cookie cutter for the base of this one.


I had an old silver tea pot lid that didn't have a tea pot to go under it so I used it for the base of this one.


I then decided to glitter some of my bottle brush trees and came up with this idea. Love the rust next to the fancy glittery tree.

What do you think? Cute huh? My husband even asked if they were for us or to give away. I said for us, but I also have put some in my Etsy shop. They were too fun to make to stop at two. So hop on over and check them out.
Awesome, I was featured on Cowgirl Up this past week, thanks Linsey:

    1. Isn't it interesting how old and rusty can play off of new and sparkly? Love the contrast. I just sold two of these cute trees. Kind of sad, now I must make more... Happy dance.

    1. Thanks Doni, I just made one with an old glass doorknob, that one is now my favorite. A good idea from a sweet lady who bought one of my spool trees.
