I used the Canvas Corp 8″;x10″; Stretched Canvas and then attached the strips of Canvas Corp Patterned Papers to form the tree {measurements: all 1″; stripes by 3″;, 4″;personalized gifts for girlfriend, 5″;, 6″;, 7″;, 8″;…;you can use different sizes}

Then I used the Canvas Corp Mini Canvas Star Shape and added the yellow &; white mini dot paper to the middle.? I just adore Canvas Corp’;s mini clothespins!? I used them for the bottom of the Christmas Tree.? The chipboard letters are from American Crafts.

This tabletop tree is laden with decorations inspired by Martha’s Polish heritage. Straw ornaments, here burnished with mica powder, symbolize hope for good things in the new year. This star-shaped ornament is joined on this pruned and clipped spruce tree by straw wreaths, braided wreaths, wheat bunches, wheat stars, gilded eggs, and golden glass balls.

Working with tiles is really popular right now – I’ve seen them turned into some gorgeous creations! ?But if you don’t have an old Scrabble game to re-appropriate tiles from (or you’re like me and?still play?your Scrabble game), there are still other mediums you can use. ?I haven’t found the clear glass tiles anywhere in stores that some people are using, but I have found it’s really not necessary that they are clear – you can use other colors, too! ?Hobby Lobby has a great selection of mosaic tiles – and bonus – they are 30% off this week (the sale ends today, 2/4, but they do go on sale periodically so keep an eye out). ?Pair that with?this week’s 40% off coupon, and supplies for this project are even more reasonable.So here’s what you need:TilesMagnets (I had heavy-duty rounds on-hand from another project, but the tiles aren’t very heavy. ?You could get away with smaller magnets than this.)E6000 or similar permanent adhesiveGraphics for your tiles – stickers, photos, or printoutsDimensional Glaze, like Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (optional, not pictured here. ?I use?Annie Howe’s?Glamour Glaze, but you could also use Mod Podge, or skip the finish altogether depending on what you use for your graphics.)??I opted to get the white tiles, and they don’t show up so well white-on-white (sorry, but I’m a messy crafter – I need my paper towel, LOL). ?But this is the package ?you’re looking for if you’re a Hobby Lobby shopper. ?It’s a package of 48, which might seem excessive, but just wait until you discover how addictive this projects is… you’ll be glad you have a lot! ?I also picked up these fun Valentine stickers at my dollar store, but you could print out customized graphics on your computer, or use photos for a personal touch, too!I needed to trim my stickers down a little – you will want your graphic to be slightly smaller than the tile, because it has rounded edges. ?Be sure to curve the corners slightly, also. ?If you are using a paper or photo graphic, you’ll want to put a coat of Mod Podge or a light coat of glue on your tile.Since I am using a sticker, I just stuck it on.This really feels like cheating, it’s so easy.Now, add some E6000 to your magnets:And stick them on the backs of your tiles.Keep your magnets a good distance away from each other, otherwise, they will try to cling! ?If you happen to be away when this happens, your magnets could adhere in a very unintended way. :PGive it a few minutes to set, then turn them over to work on the front side.Now finishing the front is really up to your tastes. ?In fact, these stickers don’t necessarily?need?additional finishing because they are plastic – I just like the way the glaze looks. ?It gives the whole thing a nice shine, and domes it slightly. ?Besides, I already have it in my supply bin, so it’s no added cost. ?(You won’t find Glamour Glaze in-store – if you’re shopping, look for Mod Podge Dimensional Magic in the same aisle as your tiles. ?It’s also a water-based dimensional glaze and will work the same.)If you do decide to glaze, add a little to the center, and use a toothpick to draw it out to the edges of your tile.It will look a little cloudy at first, but it will dry clear.Now leave them alone and do not touch them for a few hours while they dry and cure. :) (You don’t want to disturb half-dried glaze, because you won’t be able to smooth it back out… don’t ask me how I know!) ?But that’s it!Once they’re dry, they’re ready to hold those important notes to your frig (or your kids’ locker, etc.):
