Welcome to the Songs of Christmas Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends! You should have arrived here from (add person's name here and link to their blog)'s blog.
Our Blog Hop is all about the Songs of Christmas and the inspiration for my project comes from the song Oh Christmas Tree, an old classic.
I am thrilled to have been invited to join the girls from Two Scrapbook Friends in this blog hop, and I hope you are being inspired to get a little Christmas craft on.
I have had this wooden Christmas tree in my stash of crafty goodies for ages, perhaps 2 or more years. It was high time I did something with it, and this bloghop provided the perfect opportunity. I popped by the store to pick up some supplies. The Bazzill Basics Nordic Pines line got my inspiration flowiing and I got to work.
I tore several patterns from the 6x6 pack into strips and adhered it to the plain wood.
Then I brushed a thin coat of gesso on top to pull it all together, and add a slightly frosty look. So my Christmas tree is not so green or verdant, but I loved it already.
I dove into my stash of diamond wrap to finish the edges and add some Christmassy sparkle.
Here are a few more detail shots:
I hope my project inspires you to dive into your stash and combine some old supplies with some new ones to create a new Christmas decor item to treasure.
