16 Dec Ombre Holiday Trees
One of the hottest trends this Holiday season is Ombre. I am getting an early start on making my decorations this year and started off with these gorgeous ombre holiday trees. I love the touch of ombre but you can certainly make them in any colors and style to match your decor. I started off with paper mache cones in three different sizes. For the round and star shapes I used paper punches 1.5 inch for the larger tree and 1 inch for the smaller, the third tree is made from a simple leaf shape that I cut free style. I think what makes these trees stand out is the curl of the paper, something that I do for most of my paper flowers. For these trees I used metallic paper from in Champagne, Gold Leaf and Antique gold. I used a text weight but I think they will work with card stock as well.
