Thursday, October 28, 2010's cold outside

Well our nice weather has finally gone. It has been cold & windy here the past couple of days. This only means one thing.....winter is on it's way. I thought....well why not try and get in the spirit so I altered a paper mache cone and wooden star to look like a tree. I grabbed some paper & mod podge and got messy!

This was the first time I have made a tree out of paper. I simply loved the Wintertime line by Echo Park so that is the paper I used. The cone I grabbed at Hobby Lobby along with the wooden star on the top. The paper strips are cut to 1" x 3" and I just curled up the end of the paper before putting it on the cone. It's really simple....just start at the bottom and work your way up. I may take a while, but the outcome is totally worth it.
