I seem to be drawn to creating white snowy trees this year Cheesy

I picked up some lovely trimmings at an antique fair in the summer with no real idea what to do with them. But I neeeeded them! Playing with the lace I found I could make a tree shape. To back the lace I tore a long triangle from a sheet of handmade paper and then added the other trimming (not sure what it was designed for...) on the back. It fits so neatly over the tape measure trunk (these small things please me Wink) Added a bell and button and...frilly snowy trees.



Also, I don't think they need their own post so I'll sneak them in here. I finally made some of the twig trees I've been lusting after recently.


Trees, trees and more trees this year!

These frilly snowy trees are daarling.  I love the unfinished edges and special button/bell touches.  Perfect project for my lace scraps Smiley
