While cruising through blog land last evening I came across this FABULOUS paper Christmas tree tutorial and I was so excited when sweet Susanne gave me permission to share her tutorial and photos with you all. I can just see it now, holiday mantles and table tops all over the land of blog adorned with these darling trees.

Recently my cousin's wife gave me five silver candle holders from their wedding. She was in the process of getting ready to move and decided to get rid of some things and these were one of her discards. (Luckily she kept the groom and only gave away the candle holders!) They have sat around empty for quite some time now and I cannot wait to fill these with Susanne's paper trees! These will be one of the highlights for my holiday table. Thank you so much Susanne for sharing such a fab idea!

Be sure and check out this post too, you will LOVE the window idea, hey, cruise the whole blog, some really good stuff here.

Have you come across any must see must do holiday crafts? If so, leave a little linky love in the comments for the rest of us. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Love this! I still have to start decorating, as I told you before, we start in December. But I started buying some ornaments, I cannot help myself and I might as well start crafting. Thanks to you and especially to Susanne for the tutorial. Now I'm off to see her blog, thanks for the link! Have a wonderful day!

Hi Sandy,
Thanks ever so much for posting about these. I can't believe I actually have all the materials needed to create one, right here in my stash! That rarely happens. :)
Have a wonderful day.

Hi Sandy,
Thanks for the bloggy love. I know of one to share but I have to ask her permission.:) You probably have already heard of her anyway.
Have a good rest of the week.

I'm in!!! I need, need need to make time to do this-they are gorgeous!!!!! I love looking for candlesticks at the thrift store. Have you seen the candle tutorial over at can't stop making things?? Just like pottery barn for a fraction of the price. They would look awesome paired with the trees!

How cute are those! Love them. Just found a huge stack of vintage music sheets and was wondering what I was going to do with them. I guess now I know! Thanks for re-sharing! Hugs!

It's looking so spectacular in here, Miss Sandy! Love what you've done or had done as the case may be.

These little trees are scrumptious. I'm looking for simple things to do with my mom this holiday. This just fits the bill.

Oh these paper trees are awesome - thank you for scouting them out for us.

I really like your new blog design - it is so you. Elegant yet natural.

Very cute! I just unearthed an old music book...but don't want to cut it up. Can I copy the pages on a paper that will give it that old look? I thought of you when I first look through the book!! :)

This is my first visit to your beautiful blog but I will be returning. Your studio is the perfect place to dream and create. Absolutely stunning. So many wonderful details to take in. I will be looking at these photos again and again. Thank you for the inspiration.
