The coolest thing about this project is I was able to raid my box of not-wearing-this-again jewelry, and my odds and ends of craft supplies. The tree bases are tea lights or short class candle holders (you can hot glue them on or just push them part way into the bottom) and I used white cones because the green ones are too soft.
I first saw one of these trees at a neighborhood craft sale and I though to myself– Oh my gosh, I have tons of old jewelry at home. I made a couple for myself to use as holiday decor.
Then I thought–The would make great gifts if I did them based on personality.
Susan’s is red and Kim’s is pink with sparkle, the elderly couple across the street love seashells…
Oh tannenbaum! Don’t stop me now, to whom will I gift this tree when finished?
What would a tree based on your personality look like?
If you make one, I would love for you to share it on my Facebook page.
