♫ On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love made for me… Glitter that Shines ♫
♫ Burlap I Love ♫
♫ And an Upcycled Tree that’s Sparkly ♫
Welcome to Day Four of my 12 Days of DIY Christmas Trees.
I know I showed you how to make this Ruffly Burlap Christmas Tree last week… but I couldn’t help myself, in showing you this glittery burlap tree too! After all, it’s Christmas… isn’t there something about ♫ deck the halls with boughs of burlap.. fa la la la laaaaaa…♫ No?
This tree was soooo much fun to make… I started by prepping my burlap. That meant cutting my burlap into strip and adding my loops, as well!
Then I attached my loopy burlap to my tree.
And the last step was to add the sparkle!!
If you want a little more detail on exactly how I made this tree… we videoed the whole process! It took about 20 minutes to make this tree, but thanks to the magic of video editing and the lovely hubs who worked his magic… we got it down to 4½ minutes!! C’mon, you’ve got 4½ minutes… I promise it’ll get you in the holiday spirit!!
As promised… the glitter Mod Podge dried clear! And all that magnificent sparkle came through. Here are some after pictures to who you how she turned out!
And that’s a wrap!! A burlap wrap!! Hmmmm… wonder if I could come up with a burlap ‘rap’?! You know, like a puh-pah-chuu-puh-puh-pah-chuu.. all beatbox style! Ha ha!!
