Table Top Christmas Tree at Wild Orchid Crafts and SWEET STUFF!!
Happy Tuesday to each of you!! I hope you had a marvelous weekend and are now into a fun and exciting week!
Today is my day to post at the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog and I would love to invite you over to peruse this wonderfully inspirational site. You will certainly have a glimpse at EVERYTHING WOC!!!
A friend asked me to make her a red rose table top Christmas tree so of course the first place I went for some gorgeous red roses was Wild Orchid Crafts!! I apologize for the picture but I could not get the wrinkles out of the backdrop. I finally found a small 24" (60mm) tree at some website which has 66 tips and I began by using a white maribou boa as garland and tiny 3-D snowflakes. Then Wild Orchid Crafts took over!! I used 25mm (1") Red Organza Ribbon for each of the 66 flat bows and used varying sizes of WOC Red Roses: 35mm Trellis Roses, 25mm Wild Roses and 20mm Open Roses. Finally I topped the tree with a multi-loop Red Organza Bow. I didn't make a skirt to cover the base of the tree since my friend already had something she wants to use!!
