- Craft Glue Dots
- Mini Glue Dots
- Pop Up Glue Dots
- 6” Styrofoam tree
- Patterned paper – Basic Grey
- Buttons – Autumn Leaves
- Grungeboard star – Tim Holtz
- Glimmer mist, chalkboard glimmer mist, glimmer glam – Tattered Angels
- Paint Styrofoam tree with “Dirty Martini” glimmer glam and “Tattered Leather” glimmer mist, allow to dry(you can skip this step if starting with a green Styrofoam tree).
- Punch 2” circles from patterned paper (I used approx 100 circles for this size tree).
- Cut a circle in a spiral pattern.
- Starting from the outer edge; roll up the spiral until you get to the center of the circle, and you have a rosette.
- secure spiral with a Craft Dot, if you make a bunch of the rosettes first, adding them to the tree will go faster.
- Add a Craft Dot to the bottom of a rosette and adhere it to the bottom of the styrofoam tree, and work your way up to the top, ending with a rosette on the very top of the tree form. If any rosettes seem a little loose, tuck in a Mini Glue Dot to secure.
- Mist entire tree with “Pearl” glimmer mist, or “Chalkboard” glimmer mist. It’s a subtle effect, but adds a nice shimmer.
- Allow to dry fill in any odd gaps in the tree with buttons – adheree with Craft Dots.
- Coat grungeboard star with “Chalkboard” glimmer mist, and let it dry.
- Using Craft Dots, adhere buttons to either side of star.
- Wrap a Pop-Up Glue Dot around bottom point of star, heat with heat gun until it starts to melt and flow, then poke it into the top of the tree.
