Christmas Cone Trees…

I have a thing for trees…all shapes and sizes.  I especially like the cone shaped trees you see during the Christmas season.  Here are a few that a friend and I made today.  They are part of our Christmas Tree themed decor at church.

TreesAll you need to make these festive trees are a few cone shaped tree forms.  You can use Styrofoam, Paper Mache or Grapevine forms. You can even make your own if you are feeling especially crafty.  Next you will need fabric pins and floral wire.  Finally, you will need some fabric or burlap ribbon, and lots of bling on a string.

Cone TreesThe point of making any craft is to let your personality shine through.  Remember to have fun!

Merry Christmas,

Repurposed Pumpkins…Snowmen Welcome You to our Home this Christmas!!!

How cute are these little guys…Pumpkin Snowmen Welcome You to our Home this Christmas!!!

Back in early October I ventured into Houston to the open air produce market to purchase my heirloom pumpkins as well as my seemingly ordinary pumpkins.  I really love mixing the different types and shapes of pumpkins to create an interesting look for Fall.  They really welcome the season the changing season without having to go all out.  However, I like the pumpkins so much I always have a difficult time disposing of them when its time to put the Christmas decorations up.  This year I stumbled on a crafty blogger who had a stellar idea on extending the life of her pumpkins.

Coco Chanel once stated that “Imitation is the highest form of flattery” so I hope Stephanie over at Under the Table and Dreaming will be flattered should she happen to see that I borrowed her wonderful idea.
