I've got a bit of the Christmas bug. Like I said wanting to get stuff done early rather than waiting. While looking around my room the other day I found myself looking for something to do, knowing I wanted to do another Advent project because I don't know their just so much fun! I saw one of these trees sitting on my shelf. Bought maybe 3 years ago or so from Easter clearance stuff and decided I could definitely make it something fun!
I adored how this project turned out and in the future could even make more as I have 2 more of these lovely Easter trees that have been waiting years to be re-purposed.
|I first pulled all of the leaves off of the tree.|
|Then I took some heavy Gesso to it. Gave it a light sanding after it dried.|
|I then punched a number of circles from the "Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas" cardstock set. Inked up the edges and added a foam thicker number to each one.|
|I then added assorted ribbons and eyelets or brads to each one and a word number sticker.|
|I cur strips of paper and mod podged them onto the base and then glittered the rim and sealed in the glitter so it won't rub off.|
|I really do love this one. Super easy for any child to add the numbers and even some mini candy canes and ornaments if they like.|
|Added a Fun sticker to the base and it is complete!|
