My Little Tree

You may remember a while back I got a cinnamon color twig tree? I finally got it decorated except for the rosehip garland (or maybe the popcorn garland?) and I'm so excited. At last I have something other than a plain green tree, LOL! I'll be moving it as this corner is where my big tree will be, but wanted to take some quick snapshot to share with you. I have dried apple & orange slices, some beeswax Santa ornies, (all from Deb), a mixture of cute little prim ornies, cinnamon dough ornies, and a dipped light string....

While I was working on the tree I also made some garlands of rosehips, popcorn, and dried fruits.

I dipped and grunged some small candles, wrapped in rusty wire for hanging ornies. Also dipped some old pretzel sticks, wrapped in prim heart wire, and dipped again. Love how those turned out...

Last I took some grungy dipped clothespins, added a small red velvet bow, and tied rusty wire around tops for hangers.

Still lots more work to do and things to create. Will share more pics as I make progress. Till next time HAVE FUN CRAFTING!
Hugs to all, Libby
