These are made from a recycled cardboard box cut into a basic tree shape and covered in burlap, then decorated with all sorts of buttons, charms, wood, metal, brads, sequins, lace trim, cheesecloth....all from my embellishment stash--these were so much fun to make! I hope you like them too!~
I made 5 trees in all keeping with the natural, white and mint color theme. For the tree trunks, I broke apart a couple popsicle sticks and layered an old cut up measuring tape along side the sticks for an old vintage-like feel.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft GEL MEDIUM and added GESSO to areas of the trees and bits of the metal accent pieces for a bit of a worn look. I used the Metallic Mint Gelatos® to color the burlap heart.
Here's a few close-ups of the old fashioned fun!
