Day 7: Lindsay from Artsy-Fartsy Mama
"Decorating for Christmas- Glitter Ribbon Trees"
We are so excited to have the ever-so-crafty and incredibly talented Lindsay from Artsy-Fartsy Mama here today! Take it away, Lindsay . . .

Hello everyone! I'm Lindsay, the blogger behind Artsy-Fartsy Mama

 

I'm so excited to be here at Six Sisters' Stuff sharing some Christmas fun!

One of my favorite traditions is decorating for Christmas. Although it can be a lot of work, I always try to get my Christmas decorations up the day or weekend after Thanksgiving. Last year I decided to change my color scheme from the traditional reds & greens to bright pinks, purples, blues and greens. Other than the tree and an adorable wreath my sister made me, I don't really have very many Christmas decorations in this color scheme. So, I did some shopping and was able to find all the things I needed to make these fabulous, sparkly, fun Glitter Ribbon Trees!

What you'll need:
4 styrofoam cones
4 rolls of glitter ribbon
4 wooden candlesticks
Paint
Felt {matching ribbon colors}
Hot glue/glue gun

First, I painted the candlestick holders with a couple coats of silvery white paint. Then, painted a coat of silver Extreme Glitter paint over top to give it some glittery goodness! Set aside to dry.

Next, I cut a large and small circle out of felt to fit the bottom and top of the cone.

Hot glue them on.

You can also do this step after wrapping with ribbon. Either way works just fine!

Start by hot gluing the end of the ribbon on the top edge of the cone. I left the ribbon sticking up a little at the top since the angle I was wrapping it showed the top of the cone.
Add a drop of hot glue when you bring the ribbon around the "back" {the back will be where you started your ribbon - see picture above} to keep the ribbon from shifting or coming undone.
Keep wrapping until the cone is covered and glue end down.

Once candlestick is dry, hot glue it  to the center of the bottom of the tree.

Stand back and admire your sparkly trees! Super easy, and so cute!

Another big thanks to the Sisters for inviting me to be a part of their Christmas celebration!

I had a great time sharing my Christmas project with you today!

I hope you enjoyed it and I can't wait to see what other amazing projects everyone else has planned.

I hope you all have a fantastic Holiday season

and I'd love to have you stop by Artsy-Fartsy Mama and say hello!
