Altered Tilda Christmas tree (5 pictures)

Well I started this project over a week ago. Between making my  Christmas village, my fireplace, christmas banner( which both are not finished yet) I also started on this christmas tree. This was on old rustic Christmas tree that I bought in Quebec a few years ago.   Here is a picture of the rustic tree. It was really hard to decorate as the surface is so flat.  So I began by painting it white and then    adding 2 bottles of glitter.  I then glued the ribbon on the ridges, I added a couple of flowers, used the  marianne's  dies for the trees and the martha stewart punch for snowflakes.  I added some candy canes and  of course Tilda images and this is the final result.

Tilda's Christmas Village

Since I already have my tree up. Now I am working on my decorations. I decided to try making a Christmas Village with my stamps. This is the first one. I used  the magnolia lampost and the the tilda singing carols. I used the martha stewart punch for the snowflakes. The house is made of chipboard so I painted the roof and used paper for the rest of the house.  The little fence i painted white . And the cording , sentiment, tree and garland I bought at Joann's Fabrics. I plan to light my village and put it under my tree.  Stay tuned as I am continuing this project!!!!I also put lace in the windows. I am waiting for some new  christmas stamps to come in.
Have a great day!!!!!
