June…Inspired By {guest post} Delightful December and Tasteful Tuesday Party

Pin It
So excited to have you all here this morning for a fun craft project by June, amazing features and another fun party. Welcome!

Greetings, Nap Time friends and followers! Emily has been so gracious as to open up her “blog home” and invite me to share with all of you. Thank you, Emily! I am so thrilled to be here today with one of my favorite Christmas crafts!

Of all the Christmas crafts I’ve done over the years, I can safely say these remain my favorite!  You can find a wonderful tutorial on how to make these trees on Amanda’s blog, Crafts by Amanda.
Mine were slightly different in that I used papier-mâché cones instead of Styrofoam. So instead of pinning the coffee filters to the cones, I used modge podge.
The fun part begins after you finish putting on the filters! It’s time to decorate your trees!
I chose buttons, bells and bows to decorate this tree.
And some sweet little birds, too!

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

I hope my trees have inspired you to make some of your own! What will you use to decorate your Coffee Filter Trees?

Have a delightful December!
~June

  10. Hi Emily!
    Thank you for hosting this party!
    I have decided to link up our traditional table cener piece in Croatia – Advent Corolla. It has 4 candles – symbols for 4 Sundays prior to Christmas. At every Sunday dinner, family lights up candles; two days ago we have light first candle, next Sunday two etc… These candles are put out not by blowing but with piece of bread dipped in wine, usually done by the youngest in the house.
    I also link traditional Nativity scene placed under the Christmas tree. It is assembled at Christmas Eve by whole family. The figures of Three Wise Men travel slowely toward Jesus’ crib untill Epiphany (Jan. 6th) when they meet Jesus.
    I hope you will like it!
