Set of 3 easy Trees/Cricut spotlight

Good morning

I know it is Tuesday but with the kids going back to school today it feels like a Monday to me.

I am so sorry I have not posted in sooooo long, I have been feeling really blah lately ...NO MOJO ! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.....

Well I made this for Practical Scrappers but I sent it in to Cricut spotlight and guess what

IT WON !....I never thought it would win, So I figured I would post it now. Now I have to make something else....MOJO were are

These trees were so easy to make the directions seems like a lot but they go together very easy and fast. I think they make very nice decorations, and they don't have to be just for Christmas.

I have a few other ideas for them.

Tree decoration recipe

1. 3/16 in wood dowels (3 of them ) cut @ 16ins for lg tree/ 14ins for med tree/12ins for sm tree.

2. 3 large wooden spools

3. 3 wood stars

4. 30 sm wood spools

5. red & white paint

6. George cricut cart

7. tulle

8. wire

9. ribbon

Use George cart for circles for Lg tree cut @ 6ins/5 1/2 , 5 , 4 1/2, 4, 3 1/2, 3, 2 1/2,and 2ins

Med tree circles cut @ 5ins, 4 1/2, 4 , 3 1/2, 3, 2 1/2, and 2 ins.

Sm tree circles cut @ 4 ins, 3 1/2, 3, 2 1/2, and 2 ins.

George also for the Star tree topper cut 2 @ 2in and shadowed for lg tree, med& sm tree 1 1/2 in.

paint sm spools 15 red 15 white

big spools are white and paint the top of the wooden dowel white, I wrapped some paper around the lg spools also.

add ribbon and tie some tulle , coil some wire and glue the star to it for tree top.

This sounds a lot harder than it is if you use the picture for reference it is easy!

I painted the wood stars red and glittered them glue the lg spool on to the star then glue the wood dowel in the lg spool and to make them more sturdy I glued the first sm wood spool to the lg spool.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.



P.S. Also entered them in Frosted Designs shape challenge
Thanks to Jessica.
