7. now the top is on. the tree is mostly filled in and I put a few dark red birds above it so you can see the scale of the birds with the tree. my tree turned out about 3 1/2 in by 3 1/2 inches. you can make it bigger or smaller. I made a wreath by cutting a circle with another circle (like a donut) and stuck the branches to it going all around. I hope this helps. the red birds are on the way. I want to try using watercolors on wc paper to make my own greens this winter.
6. we are getting almost done. getting ready to put the top on. I am still adding branches to cover up the stick in the middle. I once used a piece of brown florist wire to make the center look real. I did a pink tree once with rock candy glitter all over it for a pretty little girl that loved pink.
1. these are the first few branches. the center stick is too fat. I don't think I used one before when I made them on a card. I put the multi matte medium on bottom and top of branch tip. then I start moving them out and up. filling in as I go.
5. we are moving now boys, (um I mean girls) lol giving the tree shape and filling it in. you can always go back and fill in when you have the shape of the tree done. you can make it tall or skinnier by just going up if you want.
