Inspired by... Noel {Inspiration #4}

 

Inspiring_Noel_Button

 

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today I have another Inspired Noel project for you! I fell in love with this idea the moment I saw it on Amanda's blog!

 

Tree_Pair_From_Above

Amanda posted her wonderful tutorial HERE, so I won't repeat it.  My trees are a little different, in that I used papier-mâché cones rather than Styrofoam. So instead of pinning the filters to the tree I used modge podge. Which may have been the attraction...

The fun part starts after you finish putting on the filters! I chose buttons, bells and bows to decorate this tree.

Oh, and some sweet little birds, too!

The smaller tree is dressed with roses and pearls, with a few red accents.

And the best part? Except for the cones and filters (pun intended –ha!) everything was from The Stash!

I hope these have inspired you to make some of your own! What would you use to decorate your Coffee Filter Trees?

  4. Oh June, these trees are adorable! That's the first time I've ever seen coffee-filter Christmas trees so I look forward to reading the tutorial. I bet they would look great too if the coffee filters were dyed. Thanks for sharing!
