I STILL haven't gotten any decorating done but I HAVE been doing a little Christmas crafting. A bling tree doesn't quite qualify as a "bucket list" accomplishment but is HAS been on my to-do list for a long time. I pulled out all my bling stash and just went for it
I used a Styrofoam tree I picked up at The Bins. I clipped off whatever was on the back of the pretties and put the hot glue on them, not the Styrofoam and just started plunking. I was kind of amazed how many pieces it took to fill the cone. Time to accumulate more because I really depleted the stash - oh darn! 8+)
I filled in the spaces around them with straight pins from my accumulation and then mounted the whole thing on a thrifted metal candle holder turned upside down. I intended to use vintage pink tinsel garland around the bottom but couldn't get it to look the way it wanted so finally settled on pink gimp. Now I just need to get some decorating done. The rest of you are putting me to shame!
