Shabby Chic Christmas Tree Trio

In my post yesterday I promised a video tutorial/run through of me making a more of the shabby chic paper cone Christmas trees…

I headed up to my wee craft shed at 8.30 am this morning, cranked the heaters up full blast (it’s minus 5 degrees outside) and set to work making more of these gorgeous shabby shiny trees…


The first one I made was the blue tree , above, this is 6.5″ tall and love how it turned out… there is a video over on youtube detailing all the products that I used for all 3 trees plus a video of all the above 🙂 … click here to watch.

I went outside and braved the sub zero temperatures to take a picture in the sunlight, and love the effect it gave, sitting on the frosty logs 🙂

then I made a tiny silver shabby tree..


I’m loving getting back into my craft shed… and plan to make more time for myself and get up here more often 🙂

After making these trees, i’m finally getting into the christmas spirit!

My next project is going to be more festive gift tags incorporating vintage images and wild orchid crafts flowers… watch this space

Thanks so much for popping round
