Mini Steampunk Tree

Sp mintree

I have one more steampunk craft to share with you. I always like to have a small trinket at each place setting for guests to take home. This year I made mini trees. These were not hard BUT a lot of little steps.

I made a paper cone and covered it in one inch circles. Added a gear to the top for a star, cut and painted a wooden dowel which I glued to the tree. The base is cooper painted chipboard gear. The dowel just fits in the center hole but I added some glue on the bottom for stability. The final touch is randomly placed glitter made from tiny metal balls.

I am really happy with these and I think my guest will be too. I am off to get ready, our Christmas eve is tonight. I think I need to chill some Champagne for Santa ;-)
