I always feel drawn to small Christmas trees. The delightful way they mimick a real fir tree, makes me smile :)
Over the next week I will show you how to make various little trees to decorate your front entrance, dining table, sideboard or even the floor (I’ll make a copse of trees).
Here’s a peek at the first one . . . done in my Christmas colours for 2011 – purple and turquoise/teal.
Made from a polystyrene foam cone & hand painted and free-cut raindrops

I have a really finicky taste when it comes to a few crafty items.
Love hearts – my preference is wide and a little dumpy (I think they look luscious and cuddly)
Just some doodled hearts on a scrap bit of paper :)
Trees – I like them outlined without too much detail
Twiddleybitz gorgeous Redgum
Well . . . it has taken three full years of doodling and re-doodling to come up with my perfect bird silhouette . . .
Thick chipboard covered in a book page and sprayed with two shades of glimmer mist
So . . . I have used this cute little shape as the outline for my first Christmas Decoration tutorial & Free Giveaway!
Fill with yummy lollies and hang on the tree. Mmmm mmm.
To make this ornament that can also hold sweet treats,
