The color combo I chose for this month is blushing bride, pear pizzazz, wild wasabi, pool party, and real red. I have been obsessed with this color combo for a while and I think it's fun and bright and a bit retro, great for Christmas! It's traditional while being out of the box a bit! Lots of stuff at Target in these colors!
For the holiday focus we were to a home decor project. I've been wanting to make one of these "circle" trees for a while and had some foam trees sitting around. I thought the colors would be fun for this and the red glimmer paper adds some sparkle.
I used a lot of different patterned papers and some textured ones for variety. I simply punched them all and then stuck them in with a straight pin. I overlapped them by about a third all the way around and then tried to put the next layer on in between the one below it (that make sense?). It went together really fast. I also wrapped a bit of pear ribbon on the bottom for a more finished look.
