Under the Gum Leaves Decor

October 27, 2019

It’s always tricky to use a range that is not typical to your area, like Under the Gum Leaves. But having said that I fell in love with it when I first saw the amazing designs and that Koala simply stole my heart. But that also doesn’t mean that I can’t or won’t use it. And it turns out to be a really versatile range too.

I chose to create a little Christmas decor tree that can fit into any setting around the holidays no matter where in the world you are. The tree consists out of snowflakes cut on my Silhouette machine, and i9n a few easy steps I created something that even the kids can make during the festive season.

Kaisercraft Products: CT971 Collectables – Under the Gum Leaves ; P2832 Gum Leaves
Other: Beads, Silhouette, Wooden Skewer, Hot glue gun

Cut several snowflakes from the patterned paper, punch holes in the middle of each snowflake. Then string them onto a wooden skewer with beads in between. Use a hot glue gun to adhere each bead to the snowflake.
I stuck the skewer in a piece of foam with a brown piece of felt as a tree skirt. Decorate the bottom of the tree with elements from the Collectables packet.
For the tree topper I added an extra bead and tied a tag from the Collectables packet with bakers twine to the top.
Sprinkle the tree with clear glitter to add some festive shimmer to it. And in a few easy steps you created a simple but stunning Christmas decor tree.
Until next time – I hope you have started your Christmas planning so long.
