Vintage Music Paper and Tulle Christmas Trees

The Mansion hosting the Sugar Plum Bazaar was decorated to reflect the theme...Sugar Plum.  Common areas had these beautiful tulle trees throughout...yummy colors.  Of course, the tulle tree was one I wanted to create...just for fun!

This is my pink tulle tree.  I added as silver star as a topper and randomly added my favorite, silver glass glitter.

Love how the pink tulle pops with the snow!



Vintage Music Paper  Trees is something else that has recently caught my eye.  I created a few and played around with different toppers.  I got 3 these little ornament toppers at a recent shopping trip to Crate & Barrel...love to shop at that store!  The topper with the little cluster of balls is from Hobby Lobby (although, it did not come this way, I created the clusters of  little ornament beads together and of course, added silver glass glitter).

These trees were all rather time consuming.  I was surprised to find they are not a quick projects.  The papers trees required much patience, especially with applying decoupage medium and sprinkling of silver glass glitter to every layer (pretty messy but I don't mind messy when I am crafting).   I am happy with the results.

    1. I used a large wooden thread spool as the base of the tree. I also used a wooden dowel rod (large enough to fit through the thread spool)- secure with glue or hot glue. Make sure the rod is flush with the thread spools so it stands without tipping. Let all that dry before you continue. Have graduating sizes of circles cut (I used vintage music paper). The first layer, start from the bottom. First layer of paper I decopage to a circle cardstock for added support. For each additional circle, decopage or add glue to the outer part of the cirlce...sprinkle with glitter then with a knife cut a hole in the middle of each circle. Slide through the wooden dowel. Continue to add layers of circles, as they get smaller to the top then glue an ornament or decorative topper. I hope these instructions work for you. Isabel

  4. I second the request for a how to on the tulle trees. I have so much tulle from my plans to make my LO a bunch of tutus but since she doesn't like them, it's all just collecting dust.
