How do you find just the right little jewel? I actually go on treasure hunts at different thrift stores and department stores for the right pieces! I couldn't find a string of pearls the right size, so I had to carefully place each pearl to create the rows. Then I chose different charms, beads, and earrings for the ornaments.
I laid it all out before adhering everything to the painted tree. Changed my mind a few hundred times! Or so it seems. I used Liquitex matte gel medium to secure it all one piece at a time. (No hot glue).
This tree is smaller than the one I decorated for the Festival of Trees, "Christmas Hope"(for the Hospice benefit). It has a similar feel to it with the background snow and glitter paint setting off the jewelry.
