Ohhhhh Christmas Tree....

I made a Christmas tree for my grand daughters Barbie house. Barbie wasn't happy with the faux tree... oh no... it wasn't full enough. So, I had to double it.

 I took two skinny trees and joined them together using wire pulling the trunks of the trees together as I wrapped the wire down the trunks...

I had to make a new base for the two conjoined Christmas trees, one that wouldn't topple over due to the bulk of the tree.

 Once the fuller tree met with Barbies approval, I hot glued all the ornaments, red ball garland and pink ball ornaments one at a time to the tree. I then glued some foam core squares together to create packages and covered those in scrapbook paper...

I love-love-love the little shabby chic cherubs on the tree, these were once silver so I spray painted them white...

I was lucky to find a small plastic nativity set at a second hand store a few weeks ago for 45¢, perfect for Barbies house. It just needed a stable...

 So, I made one...

Here it is after I painted it and hot glue everything in place. I cut small pieces of raffia and glued that to the ground of the stable to resemble hay. This little stable is under three inches tall...

I love it! Its the perfect addition next to the Christmas tree....
This tiny Christmas tree, packages and creche took me about a week to put together.... hmmm in d.i.y. years, I think thats about 2 years? lol
