Mini Crowns and Funky Trees

Today I made some Trees and some little mini crowns, aside from my mass production little giveaways for the Joyworks party on Friday.

The tree below is made of Cotton batting and features pop-pom "polka dots." Measures appx 12 inches high.

These little crowns measure appx 4 inches in diameter. Would make cute ornaments on a tree!

And here's a funky little tree I made using Crepe paper and ruffling it, applying to a cardboard cone and then glittering the heck out of it........Fun to make~
