Trees, Perfect Trees !!!!

Pink treeeeee

Do ever make something sooo wonderful, you want to call every friend and tell them about it. That is how I feel about these trees. I am soooooo in-love with them. I want to do dozens of them and fill my house. Mama and Jack posted about how to make these trees and am so glad you did Sarah. Thank you xoxoxoxo. They were very easy. Although I have to say I had to use a lot more bleach, like a generous 2 cups and it took a good 40 minutes to get light trees. But what I loved about these trees, is how they were all different. I only used two different colors, hot pink and blue. but each dyed it's own way. They each faded in the dye differently. Some I did not dye but just bleached till I liked the color. I posted lots of pictures so you could have a really god look at them. Also I did not use rite (but plan to for future trees) I did not have any and did not want to spend the money. I had bottles of liquid water-color. They are very intense and mixed that with water and they worked great. But in the long run, probably cost me more money. But I used them because I already had them. I just love the soft, luminous quality of these trees !!!!!!

Oooh oooh oooh, I am going out tomorrow ISO! Fabulous! You'd think I should be finished decorating by now. Nope. Never! lol. Til January anyway.

Susan

Your trees are so beautiful...lovely colors! They look so sweet on the white cake pedestal, too!

Clarice-
I love the trees! The colors are beautiful. Looks so pretty in front of that window. Don't you wish the real ones outside looked like that?!
Merry Christmas!

the feathered nest

I tried this and they only bleached to a lighter green. I thought I used a lot of bleach but I don't know if I used two cups. I'm going to try it again - maybe just straight belach?

Clarice,

They are even better than I imagined!

The colors are so much better than the ones made in China.

Ohhhhhhh! I'll be making these! There so sweet!

If it's not too much trouble, Clarice, could you please email me your addy so I can send your card? My husband threw out the envelope with your return on it! Thanks.

Happy Christmas!

Those are great trees Clarice!!

Thanks,

They are gorgeous and I love all the colors. I did not know you could make your own and I'm so thrilled you included info about that and a link. They would be awesome for the Nutcracker Ballet Theatre vignette I'm making as well as my holiday village. Oh, I can just see them everywhere.

Sarah

They are fantastic! (I used a lot more bleach too, but I didn't want anyone to injure themselves by being lazy like I am nd just pouring half a bottle of bleach in their sink. LOL)

I just started a Flickr group for them, and I would love it if you would add your photos to the group here:

The Glitter Fairy

Oh Clarice,
Those are wonderful...and much cheaper than the ones I've seen in the stores @ $6.oo each!!! Thanks for the tutorial.
Hope your holidays are going well!
xoxo
Laurie
p.s. I am buried over here in glitter...lots of orders yet to fill!

Perfect for your "pink" Christmas! They look like magical fairyland trees to me:o)

Leslie

These turned out so pretty! I love your cake plate display. Very festive!

LaTeaDah

Very pretty! I love them!

Mrs.Staggs

These turned out wonderful! I love all the light pretty colors. I have lots of green bottle brush trees and they go best with my more traditional decor, but I really like this idea, and the way you've displayed them.

Daisy Bouquet

I think they are so cute!!!!!!!

Janet

Clarice,
Those are so cute. I am using your pinecones in my decor. My use of pine cones and pine cone symbols is tying it together, at least I think it is. Hopefully some pictures tomorrow night. Glad your rain ended, very cold here:>(
