Handmade Christmas Trees

Hi Dear Crafty Friends,
It has been a long time... This hiatus had to do with my very demanding semester of graduate school work.  I moved in June, and then took my general degree examinations in September (3 days of grueling testing).  Then took my oral examinations and wrote my dissertation prospectus.  Ah, and almost forgot, submitted about 15 applications for internship.  Yes, it has been a very long and very hard couple of months and my craft suffered during this time.  

But yesterday my son saw some Christmas trees and he asked me if he could have one.  I turned to pinterest for inspiration and voila, I made our very own mini Christmas trees.  Here they are:
 Super easy to make... I used cereal boxes as my base! I used wired glittered ribbon on the one at the far left and glued it with a hot glue gun.  Then used some nice trimmings on the rest of them.  All in all this was such a great chance to get back to my crafts!  
TFL and hope to see you soon!
