I had such a great time creating this forest of trees using Maya Road trims and other goodies for CHA-Winter this year! I know the Christmas season has passed but I thought I would share them with you to showcase all the incredible Maya Road products I used! These trees would be great for any season and color scheme. The base of each of these trees was made using old candle holders turned upside down and a Large Maya Road Bottlecap. You can see how to make one HERE!
First up is the elegant off white, gold, and burlap trees!
I used some paper-mache cone trees from my local craft store for all of the trees. The first tree on the left I wrapped with Vintage Lace Tape and then added some metal butterflies using a Vintage Round Pearl Pin to keep them in place. A wooden doily with a Vintage Beaded Center finished off the front of this beauty! On top a kraft doily.
The second tree I wrapped in Afternoon Tea Trim in Milk. On the bottom are Burlap Posies, next are Antique Skeleton keys being held in place with Crystal Trinket Pins, and the top was finished off with another burlap posy with Snowflake Transparency and some Kraft Tickets.
The final tree in this group was made by wrapping burlap around the cone base and then wrapping Maya Road Twine in Khaki and creating a bow on top. I finished this tree off by gluing a Maya Road Linen Burlap Rose onto a Wooden Doily and added a bit of Maya Road Pleated Tulle!
The second set of trees I created are my Pink and Green trees. I like to think that even though there were for Christmas you could adapt them to any holiday or color theme you want!
These trees are ALL about the trim!!!! The first tree I painstakingly wound Maya Road twine around the top half of the cone. Next I wound Maya Road Sparkle Trim on the lower half. I placed a piece of silver pipe-cleaner around the middle to break up the two trims and glued the gorgeous Mini Antique Metal Roses in Lime Green above that. I misted a wooden doilie using Maya Mist in Lime and added another of the Vintage Beaded Center.
Tree two I first wrapped completely with Maya Road Paper Twine Cording in Rose and then added some fringed strips of Vintage Tape Measure in Rose Pink. I glued some Mini Sparkle and Shine Resin Flowers on the tree and added a small wooden spool wrapped with more twine and attached to the tree with a Crystal Star pin.
Tree three was completely wrapped in the Maya Road Sparkle Trim. I added Maya Road black Bingo pieces and then wrapped a piece of silver pipe-cleaners around each piece. A little silver glitter added to the Maya Road Wooden bird and some more Maya Road Sparkle trim to finish off this tree.
The last three trees were my favorites!
The tree on the left was first covered in old maps and some Modge Podge. Next I strung Maya Road twine around the cone and created a bow on top. Next I took Maya Road Fabric Tape in Sky Blue and made flags with it. I put those flags on a pin and stuck them into the cone. I also used Maya Road Vintage Kraft Arrows and did the same thing. I Maya Road Bottle cap and another Bingo piece and this tree was done.
The next tree was again made with Modge Podge and some old sheet music. Maya Road Alterable Crochet Trim-Double Dot and some Mini Antique Metal Roses in Turquoise completed this adorable little tree.
The last tree was again a labor of love in the winding of Maya Road Twine around the cone base. I then glued Maya Road Wooden Buttons around the tree. Zipper trim on the bottom to give it a finished look and then I strung some Maya Road Mini Pennant Canvas Banners on some floss to complete the look.
I hope my little forest of trees has inspired you to use Maya Road vast array of trims and trinkets in fun and exciting ways! Happy creating!
