Anything But A Card....

Today at Creative Corner Challenge we are featuring 'Anything But A Card' projects.
For some reason I have my weeks mixed up and I wasn't really supposed to have a DT project ready, but I guess I just wanted to get a head start on Christmas decorating.
So today I have a wire Christmas tree to show you.

My sister and I saw a tree something like this several years ago at CHA and I have been looking for the supplies to make it.  The original tree was bigger and had a pre-made wire tree base.  I have not been able to find anything close, so I decided to take a stab at making my own wire tree.  
Well, it worked and I would make another one with a few modifications.
I hot glued the wool felt balls onto the wire base and then wired the little jingle bells to the tree.  Not sure I would use the jingle bells again, but might consider some sequins?
Hope this inspires you to hop over to Creative Corner and see the other DT inspirations.  
Join us this week with your 'Anything But' creation.

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Great tree. Very ornamental and I think that that jingle bells look just perfect!
