No skill involved, just dip a doily in liquid starch and lay it over a styrofoam cone and you have A Shabby Romantic Christmas tree.
I wondered if I could starch doilies and make a Christmas tree? Halfway through I was not to sure, but I liked it in the end.
Grab one of those styrofoam cones and take the label off, leave the plastic on.
Dip your doily in starch
And lay it over your cone and let it dry, it will take about 24 hours.
I tried one with a lace doily, but it just did not have enough interest.
When the lace dried I ended up putting it under my crocheted doily like a crinoline. I also added a second crochet doily on the top.
Now, let the fun start! I hot glued some pearls from a necklace
And added a vintage pin and some old lace and tulle to the top
I hot glued the styrofoam to a candle holder and then added some vintage jewelry on that
So, there you have it! It is sitting on my fire place mantel
About halfway through I thought it looked a little like a grandma craft, but once I started decorating with the beads instead of flowers, I was kind of digging it.
You guy's are way to nice, but since I am asking and I promise you won't hurt my feelings, do you think it is a thumbs up or a thumbs down?
