Joann’s had a great sale over Black Friday weekend and I picked up lots of things on sale. Included in that was this package of green trees ~ originally $19.99 for the package they were 60% off and cost me $7.99! That’s a lot of trees for $7.99!
I decided to take some in varying sizes and try my hand at bleaching and decorating them.
This is not a quick project. It took an hour for the first two trees to reach this point and they are the smallest ones!
After two hours, all the trees were in varying stages of, what would you call it? Bleachedness?
I went through a bunch of supplies I had on hand to see what I could dress them up with and came up with this stuff. Beaded garland!
I found this picture at Country Living for inspiration.
I cut some of the beads off to do two trees and one I cut into a small garland. I very carefully put a little hot glue on the actual beads and stuck them into the tree.
Now I have a new mantel display!
I used three little ones under my mini cloches in my master bedroom.
I added “Peace”, “Joy” and “Love” banners, and used some Epsom Salts in the base of the cloches for snow.
I could see making more of these; decorating them is definitely the fun part!
