I was playing around with some wooden trees this past week decorating them with paint, stamps, paper, ribbon, embellishments, etc. They are all a little different and decorated on both sides.
I put them together in sets of threes for my craft show on Thursday and this one was the most popular, but they went over well.
I used mod podge to adhere the designer and specialty papers to the wood and then added the embellishments with several different adhesives.
The ones that were stamped have Metallic ink, craft ink, Memento ink and regular ink on them, and they all seemed to work well.
The fine tip glue pen worked great for the little embellishments that didn't have adhesive on them already.
This is the back side of the set of trees above...
and a few different ones...
If I made these again, I might not paint them all, especially if I am stamping colors on them because the red ink doesn't really stand out too much on the flowers.
The lace trim around the outside of some of the trees was attached with small nails...
And a few more samples...
it is hard to see too easily, but there are basic pearls on some of the snowflakes below...
