Christmas in my kitchen

I have been mooching on Pinterest during some serious sofa-time and have been ooooing at some of the gorgeous Christmas ideas. The ones that really caught my eye where the mini trees, so I had to have a go.


I made the tree shapes with old cereal boxes and painted them, then added some wire ribbon and tinsel mesh ribbon that I found at ~{The Ribbon Room}~, which was a new store for me.

Adding the ribbons were a bit fiddly at the very tops of the trees, but got much easier. I used gel medium to stick it all on.

To finish off  I used ~{Daniel's Tree Topper Small}~ and ~{Daniel's Tree Topper Large}~ with minimal colouring.



These are now sat making my kitchen very festive.

They're lovely, loving the texture you've been able to add, no trace of their humble cereal packet beginnings..very sophisticated trees. Lovely.
