I succumbed today to another idea inspired by
a NET tree
....a craft from the 50's!
Everyone had one of these.
I made a green one with my mom
and I think we might have sewed seequins to it.
...here's today's creation
The base for my tree is a piece of silverplate
that I recently found at a thrift store
It's rather pretty and the filigree edge allowed me to attach
prisms..(my favorite thing)
maybe I will spray with adhesive and sprinkle on some
white glitter dust
but for now I'm leaving it alone....
This was so worth it..
the net was $1.99 a yd and I needed 3.5 yds
the dowel under $1.00
You don't need a fancy pedestal or prisms
just build the tree and set it out for all to enjoy.....
