Antique Paper Christmas

I almost bought these glittered trees which were on a dining table display this week at TPT Home .  It seemed like an easy project to make, so I grab a few cardboard cones at Michaels to try on my own.   I chose white gold glitter from Martha Stewart which is finer than regular glitter and gives it that antique look.

Because some of the cardboard was peaking through, I made some ribbon out of my antique sheet music to continue with that antique paper feel.  I used the Golden medium for the glitter but it seems the fine glitter doesn't stick as well.   So I think I better buy some fixative or nothing will be left!  It still love the way they turned out.

Miss Mustard Seed always has such wonderful displays and I first saw the sheet music wreath on her blog.  I just did something small to compliment the little trees.  Looks more like a ball, but still pretty.

Of course, festive pictures were provided by my favorite free photo program....Picnik.

What cute little trees. When one uses supplies that are on hand and a little imagination the cutest things are created. Definitely a great idea to tie in the sheet music. So adorable. :-)
