I love making trees for the holidays! Do you see the tree on the right of my blog banner? Yes, scroll up ;) I made her a few years back, her name is Tude since she has such attitude. I love her so much and I have been wanting to make another.... So, I had to make a Mama Tude! Basically the same concept, but bigger :) For Tude, I used a template from thesmallobject.com. For Mama Tude, I used the same template but at 150%. And I only used the 3 largest cones, I did not add the 4th (smallest). Here are the FABULOUS Helmar Adhesives I used to create Mama Tude:
Isn't she cute?? She's got such great swagger!!! Instructions: Check out the bottom "cone"... I sprayed V2 Vellum Adhesive on it, let it sit for 5 minutes, covered it with glitter and adhered the tinsel with Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to the bottom. Easy! The middle cone is super easy too, but a smidget more time consuming... I adhered the rhinestones and pearls using Helmar's Gemstone Glue! I adhered some to the polka dots and also adhered them around the bottom of the "cone". Easy (again!), but like I said a bit more time consuming. The top "cone" is the most simple.... All I did was adhere 2 different ball trims, one on the outside and one on the inside, with Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Glue! Once, again.... Easy!
Now for the most complicated part of Mama Tude... the flower topping. And it's really not complicated at all!!
Like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, I did a live showing on UStream showing you all how easy it is to use Helmar Adhesives liks are above!
If you are going to make one of these trees... Post a link here or tag me on fb, I would love to see what you come up with!! Happy Hopping!!
