Vintage Sewing Trim Christmas Trees

 I decided to make some Christmas 
decorations for my bedroom this year,
using vintage sewing notions.
It was very easy and fast!
I just used a styrofoam cone,
some sewing trim,
pompoms, ric rac
and a milk glass candle holder 
for the base.
 I wrapped the trim round and round,
pinning as I went.
 Added some bits of lace trims 
and ric rac.

 Glued it to the candle holder
with a glue gun,
and added some vintage Christmas 
greenery.
 I did the same process on this next one,
except I used strips of fabric instead of trim.
 Then I added trim and pom poms 
to this vintage Santa that needed a face lift!!
 They all looks so cute on my dresser!
Bye for now!

I love that pretty aqua trim that you used to make the sweet tree! I'm also oogling that cute daisy bag in the background.

I think that trim will end up on everything in my house eventually! That daisy suitcase I got at the thrift, I never pass up those if I spot them! :)
