Garland Christmas Tree

I have shared a few dollar store styrofoam Christmas tree ideas lately, but I still have one more.  I just had so much fun making these trees - and I love getting all of my supplies at the dollar store!  Here's the finished tree-

I started with a tree form and base - which I spray painted - and some garland-

I glued the tree form onto the base with some hot glue (I didn't want all of my trees to be the same height) - 

Then, I glued the garland - starting from the bottom - 

I just worked my way up-

I wanted to finish the top, so I added a bow using dollar store ribbon (it's the same ribbon I used to hang my Ornament Wreath)-

And here it is with my Thumb Tack Tree - 

Now it sites on my mantel (with my Tinsel Tree) - 

And my Thumb Tack Tree sits on the opposite side with my Moss Tree - 

I think they are so cute!  And I love how inexpensive they were - it makes decorating for the holidays affordable! Yay!  

I've shared this project here-
