If you have a very small tree, that is. :) I saw this idea in an email from my favorite knitting store, and I knew the Maya Road products would work so well, I had to try it! I am so happy with how my little tree turned out, I hope you'll be inspired to make your own.
First, I cut a triangle of green paper to fit in my frame. I started pulling out products and seeing how they fit inside the shape. I tried many combinations, that's what's so great about our embellishments, there are SO many!!!
Once I had my configuration figured out, I added the tu-tu tulle trim in the avocado green to the triangle to give my tree a little more texture, then I started tying bows with the twines and cordings and fancying up the metals and woods with color. I misted the Wood Shipping Tag with Maya Mist Lime then stamped it with the Metro LC Alphabet Stamp set.
I embossed a snowflake from the Snowflakes Mini Chipboard set and set it on one of the hexagons from the Hexagons Chipboard set, misted with Mustard Yellow Maya Mist. I dressed up the sweet little Oh Dear Resin Charm pink deer with a huge Vintage Paper Rose around her neck.
I tied everything I could with various colors of the Solid Twine Cordings, Crafting Jute Cording, and Craft Cording Jute because hey, you can't have enough bows, can you? I also wrapped a Vintage Wood Beading Spool with twine too! You'll also notice the metal clips (Love Pendant Clip and the Christmas tree) are colored. I like to press mine in embossing ink and dip into powders, then heat emboss until I have a nice thick layer of color.
I added some Sparkle Trims in Mermaid Blue and Party Pink to a few of the embellishments for some much needed bling. Then topped the tree with a Super Star Pin in Gold and added a few smaller Yellow Star Pins for fillers.
In the end, my little tree full of eclectic ornaments makes me happy. Such a playful mix of products, I love how my new wall art showcases the wide variety of Maya Road products. Here's a full view of the tree with all it's decorations.
