Large Christmas Tree Charms on the tree

Our new large Christmas Trees are as mentioned previously, a generous size with amazing detail .. sometimes you can't imagine the size and detail when viewing on-line so here I have tried to show the size and other ways you can use them.

So here they are on my palm ....

And because of the size they can quite easily become a decoration on their own on your Christmas Tree this year.  
They have small circle indents on them which acts as a guide to embellish

Here are a few suggestions
First with our Large Antique Silver Christmas trees

Hanging from our mobile phone cords and embellished with light green rhinestones

Embossed with Aged Rose Stampendous Embossing Powder then sprinkled over Rose Fragments, using dimensional magic to adhere the fragments

upclose of the 2 silver Christmas traditional bells
and 10mm silver jump rings

As Glimmer Mist won't stick to charms I first painted my Large Antique Silver Christmas tree charm
with Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium Matte then sprayed
starting at the top of the tree with Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist then Olive Vine Glimmer Mist towards the bottom
(I wish you could see the full effects of the Glimmer Mist on the tree, it looks stunning!)

after the glimmer mist dried, I added some brown pearls

or how about Opaque  Black Seed Beads and Diamond Stickles?

First left unaltered hanging from our Antique Bronze Iron Chain

I wiped Christmas Red Stickles using my finger
Added 2 red Christmas traditional bells to the top of the Antique Bronze Iron Chain
for this one

Embossed with Stampendous Embossing Powder Marine and hanging from Blue Pearls, 8mm Brown Pearl and bead findings

To create this tree
Randomly wipe "emboss it" over tree then sprinkle with Stampendous Embossing Powder Marine
and emboss it with heat gun (be careful let it cool down before you touch the charm ... HOT!!!!)

then finish off with 2 lots of 6mm dark blue pearl, separated by a 5mm antique bronze snowflake spacer bead finding

with your round nose pliers bend the end of the pin, (without the loop) and trim with plyers so it is aligned with the bottom of the bottom pearl

Place the "hook" of the pin through the loop at the top of the Christmas Tree Charm

now squeeze the loop together to secure it to charm

so there you are with just a few ideas to alter our new large Christmas Trees.
Pop over to my2angels and get yourself a packet or two as these are selling even quicker than we expected!

You will find them in the new arrivals section
