Ooooh Shiny!

I've recently started looking around at all the crafty blogs there are out there, and boy are there a lot!  To keep myself from being overwhelmed by craftiness I only look when I've got time.  I can easily waste hours in front of the computer screen jumping from one to the next, so I try to limit myself!  I came across this tutorial for a sequined Christmas tree and fell in love!   I figured this cheap craft turned super-cute decoration had to be a part of my decor this year.

I used turquoise and bright green to make the sequin tree, and then, since I can't just have one of any decoration, I decided to make two other coordinating trees.  It took hours to make the one sequined tree, so that wasn't going to happen again!  I decided instead to get some matching fabric to cover the other two.  The little one is covered in turquoise fabric with a "garland" of green fabric, and the big one is covered in the green fabric, with a swirl of turquoise then accented with sequin "ornaments".   I love the set and can see them being a favorite decoration for years to come!

  1. The sequined tree is gorgeous. I actually have a foam ball in that shape that I don't have any use for. You're influencing me! haha. I love how to made coordinating trees too.

    I know what you mean about spending too much time cruising craft blogs. Sometimes I'm amazed at how much time has passed when I'm looking at them.
