Where did November go!?!?! I feel like it was just Halloween and all of a sudden we've kicked it into Christmas high gear! Which is fine with me-I love Christmas. Everything about it is wonderful :) So after seeing these gorgeous beaded christmas trees, I thought I would go out an try my hand at them.
I started with 2 different sized styrofoam cones for my trees.
does this happen to anyone else? Why does Blogger flip my pictures sometimes? I have resized them for web viewing!!!! This drives me bonkers-any insight would be appreciated!
I spray painted them silver just incase the beads didn't completely cover all the holes
I had purchased 32 christmas picks from Michaels. Each pick had 10 beads on it. I thought 320 beads would cover both trees. Plus I had basically pawed through and bought all the picks in gold in that store!
Next I had to seperate the individual beads from the picks. Talk about a mindless job! I was glad that since the beads were on wires I would be able to skip a glue process and just jab the beads right into the the styrofoam! I like effieciency!
Sorry for the sideways photos.....stoopid Blogger!
TA DA! Sad thing is I used about 230 beads on this small tree! Now I don't have enough to do the big tree. So I am open to suggestions as to what I should do with the other tree? Should I go to another Michaels and look for more beads? Or try something different?
