Mini trees- yarn and glass pebbles

 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.

Philippians 1:3, New King James Version (NKJV)

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for so many blessings, including you- my readers, followers, and visitors who comment and encourage me. I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends.

Once the turkey and leftovers are put away, IT WILL BE ON. The full on Christmas shopping, decorating, wrapping and cooking. Am I the only one who waits until the end of November to make gifts and decorations?  I've tried out a couple of cone trees this week to use in my decorating.

I had two foam cones from the Dollar Tree (no longer there! ugh- I wanted more). I wrapped one with some yarn remnants I got at the Thrift Store ( same bag I made my wreath from). I added some sequins with pins randomly and topped it with a Dollar General store ornament. I took another cone and glued on blue glass pebbles from the Dollar Tree. I'll be doing another in green, as I plan to use blue and lime green, with a touch of red for my decorating colors this year.



Not bad for a $3.00 investment, huh?

  8. I really like your glass pebble tree! That is so pretty and will work for the rest of the winter season. I love to find Christmas items that I can leave up until Valentine's day. Thanks for sharing!

  13. These are so pretty and what a great idea. I guess I'm glad to know my DT isn't the only one that doesn't have the cones anymore. I went the other day and nothing. Grrr....
