Shabby Chic Tree
Well what a pain this was lol. I decided to use up some of my scraps of lace and this is what I came up with. I made a cone out of card and secured it. I used crochet cotton lace tocover the entire cone as a strengthener. I then used all scraps of lace and ribbon and a few feathers randomly placed.
I didn't have doweling to secure the tree to the base so I used a pair of chopsticks bound together (as they were not long enough lol) . At the top I glued them into a small plastic egg to stop it showing through the top. I glued pearl string round the top to secure the large crystal bead.
For the base I used a tuna can (which was fabulous on my baked potato lol) with a small cotton reel on top and covered with lace, ribbon and doilies.
This really felt like ''Blue Peter'' moment lol
Now for the pics ... I tried lights on it But preferred without
