A Trio Of Glittery Trees


I finally finished up the little project I was working on!
A trio of glittery trees!



I saw these sampler trees at Amy Powers- Inspired Ideas Christmas 2010
and wanted to give her pattern a try.


So I gathered up all sorts of colorful beads, shiny sequins, ric-rac trim
 and embroidery floss and got to work.


When I posted the sneak peek photo a couple of weeks ago, 
a few of you thought I was making a tree skirt.
That would be a great idea too! 
Just for fun, I laid all three of the flat panels together
to see what a tree skirt might look like.


Anyway, I just love how these little trees turned out.
And can't wait to start decorating for Christmas next Friday!


Be sure to take a look at all the wonderfully creative

Hope you have a fun and creative weekend!

  7. You have put a lot of work into those. They are delightful. I wouldn't have the skill or patience to make them. My creative weekend involves cleaning out the garage. It is the council's kerbside clean up next week so out goes all the old hoarded stuff. 'm hoping to renovate the garage and laundry after that.

  21. Gayle, those are so wonderful! You better be careful or you're going to have to take orders;o)

    I got the tool box from Good Juju and the plant stand at Bella Patina. We really had a fun time. We went to dinner at Jack Stack BBQ in the freighthouse area and then went to some art galleries.

  30. Oh those are just too cute and glittery - I love the sparkle of them. I've made some trees similar to this but not with quite that much shimmer and shine - I just might gather my things up and make some.
