The trees were made completely out of miscellaneous stuff in my studio. A little gold paint and glitter goes a long way to make these trees look festive.
2" wooden cubes, drill hole in middle (top)
torn scraps of book pages, ribbon, wrapping paper, trim, etc.
hors d'oeuvres sticks, wooden bead (painted gold),
