Paper Christmas Tree's

I made these little beauties for the Craft Fair as well. I saw something like them on the front of the Oriental Trading Company's catalog. However, they were made using paper mache forms and dowels.

This first one I used Anna Griffin paper on. I made the paper loops really tight to give it more of a Victorian look. I used Liquid Glass (Close To My Heart) dripped down the top and then shook snow glitter over it before it dried.

On this tree I used larger loops and more whimsical paper.

The paper is all by Provo Craft. The candy Cane stripped paper is the Candy Striped designed by Susan Seals. For some reason I didn't note the other names. Again I used Liquid Glass (Close To My Heart) and a dash of the snow glitter.

You can't see the detail all that well but it actually looks like icicles are hanging off the paper branches.
