Champagne Blossom Tree

Howdy.  I set out to finish my champagne shabby chic holiday tree.  Now before you remind me that this is only March, and November is quite a few months away; I know.  I just wanted to get a jump start on holiday craft fairs.  I didn't make this tree to sell at the craft fairs, but rather as a booth decoration.  Something to catch your eye, and draw you into my booth {smile}.

I used some champagne colored blossom trim, to cover a styrofoam cone.  I added some silver german glass glitter to the edges of the blossom petals.  And to finish it off, I added some mercury glass ornaments.  I used pearl-end corsage pins to attach the ornaments to the styrofoam cone.  And then I topped off the tree with a rhinestone and bead star.
Now that I see the photo I took, I am not completely happy with my tree.  I think I need more glass glitter {smile}.
