(Semi) Wordless Wednesday: Coastal Holiday Tree

It's my first time, so please be nice to me. Today I'm linking up with my friend Daphne over at Flip Flops & Pearls for (Semi) Wordless Wednesday. In addition, I am sharing the fruits of my labor - the Coastal Holiday Tree! 


After countless hours spent glittering, crystallizing (is that a word?), and hot gluing for the past few days - my tree is now up and decorated. Unfortunately, I didn't have a tree topper that went with the coastal theme. My solution? Take a roll of ribbon up to the florist and have them make me a pretty bow! 


As you all know from my previous crafting, I started by just making starfish - then I made a few sand dollars. After finding a huge bag of sea shells that I'd forgotten about, I decided to experiment with making some of those into ornaments. What do you think? I must apologize in advance for the photo quality (or lack thereof), I could not get the lighting right to save my life. It probably didn't help that I was taking pictures late at night either. Oops. 


Hope you enjoy my first crafting project! Are you making any handmade goodies this holiday season?









Next week, I will share my Lilly Pulitzer-themed pink and green tree and my "football" tree (think Alabama for college and Dallas Cowboys for professional football). 


Tell me about your tree! Do you go with a theme, a color scheme, or are you more traditional?
