Tinfoil Tannenbaum

I wasn't kidding when I said we were going to get crazy with tinfoil! I love playing and stretching a theme for the creative juice. How many times have you looked at something and said, "oh nice," and moved on without letting it stir your creative pot?

Well, since this is a blog about creativity, I want to take you on that playful journey. The one where you ask: hmmm...how can I take that a step further?

We've been using aluminum foil to create all sorts of unexpected bling. You can catch those posts by *clicking here*

Our tree uses the same techniques, just varying the patterns with the foil. 

Remember this little tool? A crimper. It will do more than aluminum foil. You can find out more about it and get the tinfoil tutorial *here*

By just layering the patterns, pinching, and hot-gluing it onto your cone form, you will get this lovely silvery tree. I put a little bit of white fleece in there to look like snow.

Use wavy scissors to cut the foil for more tree-like texture.

I like making it 'bumpy' like a real tree.

Here she is, all silver and snow!

Time to put on the high heels and dress up for the Christmas party!

ooOOooohh ...  love that bling!    Pin It

Hmmm...I wonder:  who's she going out with?
Stay tuned for the mystery date!

Psst..."Tanny's" *Mystery Date Revealed HERE*

You can miniaturize the tinfoil tannenbaum to make 
a Frosty Forest of Ornaments!

Speaking of frosty, take dollar store jar candles and turn them into the cutest little jar candle snowmen ever!
