Getting ready for Christmas

I am still obsessed with the fabric circles and wanted to find a way to use them with my Christmas decorations. I’ve beaded them and added ribbon and toppers. The toppers are meant to be slightly bent and remind me of a Dr. Seuss  illustration.


I stopped in my favorite thrift shop and picked up candlesticks and plates and made stands for them using instruction from prettyhandygirl. I wanted them to be all white or frosted, so I painted the clear ones with acrylic paint. As my mother would say, I did a good job “tackifying” them.


  1. They do have that Suess-look and they are just charming. A grouping on them really adds pizzazz!

  2. How cute, I love it when someone gets an idea, runs with it and makes it their own. Great job! I just stopped by to let you know that I have a new giveaway. Come by and check it out. Hugs, Cindy

  3. You have really gone to town with these embellished circles! Love the Seuss-ness of these trees! What a lovely idea plus you are recycling. win win. Thanks for sharing.
