Beaded ChristmasTrees Diorama

Christmas diorama
Christmas Trees Diorama
Dear friends Thank you so much for the wonderfully uplifting comments on my Beaded tree tutorial.I used the beaded trees to make a  Christmas diorama by recycling an old cardboard box.Wrapped the box in festive papers and added  a glittery Santa in a sleigh pulled by reindeer ploughing through snow!

Foam crafts
Made a snow laden silver fence [cut from foam and mounted on acetate] with a candy cane and a shimmery white reindeer who even has a golden bell around his neck!Created a snow laden  Christmas landscape with snowtex

Foam crafts
The red berries on the holly leaves strewn all over my Christmas diorama are called “manjadi kuru” in my native malayalam language.A little bit of snow really jazzed up this old Christmas bell ornament I had.

Many friends commented in my earlier post that the beaded trees must have taken time to make ..actually I was surprised that they took much less time than some cards!!

  3. So very clever. A great Christmas decoration - isn't it funny that we related snow and reindeers and pines with Christmas when in real life the day is usually quite hot! Well, it is for me and I assume from where you work it is for you too. The effect of the northern hemispheres and their stories about the good St Nick I guess!

  6. Deatiled bee-utifully. I can not see myself beading because I would have them spilled everywhere since they are tiny. The other day i knocked over my eyelets and luckily most had spilled inside the bag that I had the container in. I did find some on the table under papers but who knows if I found them all. Definitely feels like Christmas here with the Centra;l TX ice & snow we got this wk. Forecast is for temps below freezing till Tues. Brrr.
