Rick Rack Christmas Trees

It’s not too early to start posting Christmas crafts is it? I sure hope not! You’ll see several Christmas decor, handmade gifts, and treats posted over the next few weeks. To start my Christmas crafting I recently made framed Rick Rack Christmas Trees.  

Rick Rack Christmas Trees

 These are so festive and easy to make. The possibilities are endless with all the choices of scrapbook paper and rick rack colors available.
 To make these I gathered old frames and gave them a couple coats of silver spray paint.
 I cut my paper and adhered it using an Elmer’s Craft Bond glue stick. It holds up really well but allows you to remove the paper easily if you want to reuse the frame for another project. Or if you change your mind about your paper choice after you’ve glued it on. Just saying :)
 Cut your pieces slightly smaller than the last and use a glue gun to glue onto the paper.
Don’t you just love this time of the year? I can’t wait to show you everything I’m working on for Christmas. Thanks for stopping by!
