I decided to make this theme tree again... I did it about six years ago for the Festival of Trees. As usual, I made too many ornaments for the tree that year, so I still have some to use at home. I'll show you those another day. In the meantime, I made these little signs for my cowboy tree. They were very simple, I used scrap lumber from my Dad's workshop... the bullet holes are drilled in! The snow is really dripped hot glue, hardened and painted with white paint and rolled in glitter...
I like it that the signs say things about our friends and family. Can you guess what the jokes might mean?
Buddy helped me with the drillin' and blow torchin'. Miss Loopy assisted with the paintin' and the glitterin'. These'll fancy up our dang tree no problem!
I hope to dig out the rest of the ornaments and get them touched up a bit before I set up the tree. I found fake barb wire at WalMart after Halloween so I'll wrap it around the tree also.
I think my family might be getting a little tired of the theme trees. Does anyone else decorate a theme tree? I enjoy it waaaay too much. It's a year-round illness for me, planning the theme for the Christmas trees... with gift wrapping to match!
