Decorating for the Holidays!

Here's a picture of my mantle! I made these Christmas Trees using the Dashing Designers series paper from last year. I bought some small pots from Home Depot and painted them, put some styrofoam in and a dowel for the trunk of the tree. Then hot glued some fake moss to the top of the foam in the pot. I added some of our Real Red 5/8 inch ribbon to the top I just LOVE these trees!

On the side of the trees I made some matching explosion boxes. They are empty and just look like presents by the tree..
See they are empty...
Last but not least some Pine cone ornaments again with the same ribbon and paper. I just adore these decorations and will be putting them up for years to come!

Happy Holidays Enjoy making your decorations.... make it a Family tradition!
