Sweet Christmas Trees

There's nothing sweeter to me than Christmas trees at Christmas time

Having a Christmas tree is my absolute FAVORITE part of the holiday season. 

I also love little Christmas trees in all shapes and forms.  There are SO many of them around bloggy land right now.  
So I decided to make my very own version.

{I may as well admit it now, I am HORRIBLE at making tutorial pictures...usually when I have time to do the project, it's only for a quick minute and I don't like to waste time taking pics of all of the steps.  So I am sorry for a lack of pics in that area...some of you moms out there may understand!}

All I did was used styrofoam trees, some turquoise, gray, and black rope, pretty sparkly diamond garland, and a few cute little pushpins to make my trees.  (All materials were ordered on Amazon)

I glued the top of the rope on the trees then wound it around the tree till I got to the bottom and then glued it again.  That was quite simple.  I added the garland the same way. 

And the pins are just pushed right into the foam all over to look like decorations.  (My Ally thought of that one,  I was SO stinkin' proud of her!) 

And here they are, lookin' all pretty for the holidays.

Love how your trees turned out and all the little details. The browns with the turqouse is such as gorgeous color combo.
