30 Days of Repurposed Projects - Day 8 - Pink Christmas Trees

30 Days of Repurposed Projects - Day 8 - Pink Christmas Trees 

If you just started following, I had a huge sale on our farm in the pole building.  After the sale, I went through and found items I could repurpose and make them hopefully useful and sellable.  This one is my favorite so far!

These ceramic trees were $0.50 and $1 each at my sale.

There they are on the tables...

I brought them in the house, washed them up and painted them pink.  I don't know why I chose pink - but, I like it. 

I did several coats of the pink on each.  When it was dry, I dry brushed some ivory across the branches to look like snow.

The larger tree had holes where you would put those plastic bulbs.  I had a broken pearl necklace, so I decided to glue the pearls over the holes.  Use E6000. 

Once all was dry, I brushed Mod Podge on the trees and sprinked with the glass glitter.  

I also added a piece of felt to the bottom of each.  These trees will be available at the "Handmade & Vintage Christmas" Pop Up sale here at the farm.  I think the small one will be $12 and the larger one $20.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
