Oh Baubles!

Now I don't know about you but I don't like a messy Tree. In my world you can have too many Baubles. Last year they just got shoved back in the loft with the tree box. I decided to do something with them this year. I saw a lovely wreath somewhere on the TV and thought "Why not!!" So here it is.......

First I cut out the ring base from card stock then using silicone gel I arranged the Baubles around the ring and then used the large pearls to fill in the gaps. Once dried I then tied the flower to the center of the bottom of the ring and then wrapped light blue ribbon between the baubles and pearls one way then the other, making a hanger at the top center spot of the ring. Finally tying a bow with dark blue ribbon.

I still had quite a few left over. I found the old candle tray under the kitchen sink and some pine cones left over from one last years Christmassy crafty sessions with Aiden and sprayed the Silver. I placed the candle in the center of the tray then arranged the baubles and pine cones with more silicone gel finally tying the bow around the candle.
