You know how when bad things keep happening to and around you, it is rather hard to get into any kind of holiday spirit? Well, this year things have been bleak and bare, so I decided I would need another kind of tree...

And born was Googly eye tree! Grin


I found this light chain package that proclaimed having only white lights- and as it turns out, it lights up in all different kinds of colors, twinkles and even changes the color of the light.... the individual lights were nice and round and white and just begged to become eyes, so the "tree" started out as this:

Just a bunch of wire and the light chain and then I added some air dry clay- which I sorely lack any kind of skills for Wink At first, it actually looked rather nice, but then the whole thing tipped over during the night, so I ended up with a super-gnarled version of a gnarly tree- but as this is just like what is going on with this year's Xmas, I just kept it like it was, put some spray paint, glitter (yeah, even this ugly little tree deserves some glitter!) and some snowball decorations on it...

And here is step two:

And then the fateful moment of lighting it up- and yeah, sad little googly eye tree warms my heart Grin

Have a wonderful holiday, all you Craftsters out there and may there be a wee light shining on even the grinchiest of hearts!

That is actually really really cool even if it's not traditionally "Christmas-y."  Whatever gets you in the spirit!  I'm bookmarking this so I can make my own!
