“Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, How Beautiful and Lovely!”

Its a Christmas Wonderland over here, lots of festive crafting going on, especially with our Beacon Makers. Here is a super creative way to dress up store bought bottle brush trees from the craft store. Beacon Maker and Designer Joan Kettell, Joan Kettell Designs, used both Beacon Adhesives Power Tac and Tacky Glue to put this piece together.

Let’s scroll down and make one of our own. Don’t forget the sparkle and the glue…..
