It has been gold and white for about 8 years and I just felt I needed a change. So I have given myself $25-$30 to spend to create a new look.
My mother -in-law gave me some beaded and mirrored wind chimes she bought for a lamp shade for a grandchild which she never made. They are fuchsia and silver so I decided fuchsia would be one of the colours I would use.
I have created some hanging decorations using them. After some thought I decided I would use a complementary colour of Lime green as the other colour on the tree.
I have purchased some baubles, material to make yo yo,s from. The centre is felted using a felting machine.
some pipe cleaners (The kids and I had fun making these together)
and I used some wool I already had to make some crochet flowers for the tree.
I'm very excited to see how it looks. I also spent only $30.00. I'll post a blog when it is done.
