Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Happy Black Friday!! I hope you are scooping up some amazing deals! Today is the last day of the month long Winter Wonderland Hop with DCWV and Eileen Hull.  Both teams are featuring the twist and style tool with DCWV's Christmas Stacks.  Here is my desk top Christmas tree.

I used The Christmas Plaid Stack, Twist and Style tool, wire, twine, metal dies and Christmas metal charms.  The Twist and Style is super easy to use, but Eileen has great step-by-step video tutorials.

For my project, I upcycled a tin can to make a desktop Christmas tree. 

I used A Jillian Vance's dies to make the poinsettia and the bow.

I used both wire and cotton twine to make the spiral part of the Christmas tree.  Here is a closeup of the twisted wire and the bow topper.


I used Blue Moon Beads charms as Christmas tree ornaments.

Here is my completed Christmas tree!  Love it!

I added a battery operated votive candle and here is my little Christmas tree lit! 


I hope you have enjoyed my project today.  Enjoy your Black Friday Shopping!
