Today I started pulling out those Christmas bins. I figure if I do it a little at a time, it won't be so much work. Plus, I just couldn't stand it anymore...I LOVE decorating for Christmas!!! I found these really fugly wire trees I got at the Dollar Tree last year, and wondered why in the world I would buy something so hideous. I considered throwing them into my garage sale pile for this weekend, but then I had a lightbulb moment. I can totally transform those sad little trees into something beautiful. It was such a quick and easy project. Perfect for this busy holiday season. Here is what I did...all 2 steps!
Start with a sad little cone tree from the dollar store, garage sale, thrift store, or trash pile.
Then hot glue a feather boa around the tree to your little heart's content. And voila...super cute, easy breezy, mini feather trees! I have some more cone trees and I plan to make at least 3 more. I'm not sure I'll be able to stop at three...I kinda love them!
DEAL ALERT :
Did you notice my big apothecary jar filled with jumbo candy canes in the first picture? I found them at Dollar General 2 for $1. That is a fantastic deal. At Dollar Tree they are $1 each. I love the way they look. But those darn kids of mine are already begging to eat them. What...are you insane? Maybe in three or four weeks...sorry kiddos.
