I am so in love with this Fuzzy Christmas Tree! If you watched the live then you know I stumbled across this idea on accident. I actually had a different craft in mind for both the cardboard tree form and the boa. But, after looking at the both of them together in my cart I realized they needed to be a thing. From the image I had in my mind I knew this was going to be pretty, but wow, it is even prettier than what I imagined!
- Cardboard tree form from Hobby Lobby ( You may want to get a few different sizes!)
- White Acrylic paint
- Paint Brush
- White feather boa ( It takes two full boas to do the smaller form)
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Gold glitter star from Dollar Tree (If you can’t find these a glitter bow would look nice!)
Step 1: First, paint the entire tree white. Because the cardboard is painted white you can space the boa out a little more thus using less of it. ( totally forgot to take a picture of this..oops!)
Step 2: Next, begin to glue the feather boa onto the cardboard form. It works best if you start at the bottom. I cut the little knots on each end of the boa off so they were not visible on the finished project. ( No picture of this either.. double oops!)
Step 3: The last thing to do is to add the star. You can just sit the star on top but one of my followers gave me an even better idea! She suggested I put the star on then wrap the boa around the bottom part so you don’t see it. I think it will look best doing it her way! I LOVE all the great tips I get from my followers. You all are great! I did have to trip some of the bottom coiled part off of the star to get it to look right.
I made these glitter letters to go along with these fuzzy trees. Because of this I decided to use that same glitter on the stars so everything matched. I just added a layer of Mod Podge, poured on the glitter and allowed it to dry. Once it is dry you may want to add another coat of Mod Podge to seal the glitter.
