O Christmas Tree!


This is my ornament, the one I sent out to the other nine people in my swapping group!  It’s made of a couple of old cardboard boxes, upholstery fringe, hot glue, and glitter glue.  I hope that they all enjoy it and I’m thinking about making some more to hand out to friends and start my own little ornament swap tradition.

This fringe was the inspiration.  When I found the giant spool of it at an antique store I knew immediately that I wanted to make little trees with it!

I began by cutting out triangles of cardboard from an old shoebox, warmed up the glue gun and began wrapping the triangle with the fringe.

Gold floss through the top and viola!
