Ribbon Trees

It is time to start getting ready for Christmas! In our house we decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving... and that is this weekend!
Here are some cute trees that will add some whimsy to your decor!



Here is what you will need:
Cone (found at a craft store)
3 kinds of ribbon
Straight pins OR Hot Glue Gun

1. Cut your ribbons to 4 inch lengths.

2. fold your ribbon in half and attach it to the bottom of your cone.  You can with pin it on or use hot glue.  I found that hot glue was faster for me. and the ribbons stayed in place better too.

Here is how I Hot glued it:
I put a blob of glue on the foam cone, then placed the unfolded ribbon on it so that the back side was facing up.  then I put a blob of glue on the ribbon and fold it it up. 
Continue adding layers of ribbon until you get to the top of the tree.



3. Finish off the top. 
Put a line of hot glue from the top of the cone and done to the next row of ribbons. 
Place your ribbon on the glue wrong side face up
put another line of glue on the ribbon and fold in half. 


4. Finish off the top.  I add a loop with an extra piece of ribbon.
These trees are so fun because you can pick the colors to match your house! 

When do you decorate for Christmas at your house?

Glitter Spoon Turkey

For my next Art Glitter project, I am moving on to a Thanksgiving theme! 
The Glitter Spoon Turkey!

Here is what you will need:
9 Plate Joining Biscuits (Found at Home Depot or the like) - They are wooden discs
An old spoon (thrift store)
Paint
Hot Glue
Art Glitter: Brown #58, Copper Harbor #231, Halo #230, Cranberry #119
Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive


1. Paint your Biscuits brown on both sides and allow to FULLY dry

2. Spread Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive over the front side of the biscuits and sprinkle your Art Glitter on to it.
I used : Halo #230, Copper Harbor # 231, and Brown #58 

3. Once the glitter has dried completely you can arrange the biscuits into a turkey feather pattern.  Hot Glue to keep them together. 

4. Hot Glue your spoon to the feathers 

5. Paint a turkey face on the spoon. 

6. Use a Sharpie marker to add details. 

7. Add the Gobbler by making the gobbler shape out of Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive...
...And Adding Cranberry #119 Art Glitter. 

It makes a really cute addition to a fall arrangement!
